Hi Everyone
Kerrie here and I am back with a layout I created for Couture Creations Blog
using the soon to be released Couture Creations Secret Garden Dies along with my favourite die from the Background Savvy Collection Evergreen, I love love love this die it is just so versatile.

ok lets get started

start by arranging the Evergreen diecuts ...these are ones I had from demonstrating at the Craft & Quilt Fair, You don't have to worry about what colour they are or if they are perfectly cut as you are going to be using them for texture.

next scrap on a thin layer of Gesso where your diecuts will go and layer them ontop

then apply more Gesso covering the diecuts up, but allowing the texture to show through. Then while the Gesso is still wet spray with a mix of sprays. I have used Green,  Peachy and Gold colours. 
You can mix the spray in with the Gesso to make it less stark white
dry off using a heat tool

I then sprayed some Couture Creations White Flowers, some seam binding ribbon and Muslin using the green spray with a touch of gold over the top.
Dry with a heat tool

now it is time to die cut your dies, I laid them all on the plate and cut them all at once, I placed a piece of brown cardstock over the fence and then layers the green patterned paper over them all and run them through my die cutting machine

as you can see I cut off the side of my tree but all was good as that side was going under my photo
I ended up cutting another fence in brown cardstock and not using the green diecut fence

now it is time to layer everything on your page and when you are happy with your placement glue everything in place using the Turbo Glue Pen, it is brilliant for adhering diecuts and flowers

you can see here how I have layered the photo ontop of the right side of the tree branches

a closer look at the textured background

 finish off by applying some Crystalina Glitzin' Glamour Glitter Glue onto your diecuts

I hope I have inspired you and that you have enjoyed my tutorial and please if you recreate my layout please share your layout on the Couture Creations Facebook page as we love to see what you create.
