Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Take a light green 12 x 12” sheet from the Sea Breeze Collection paper. Cut it to have a 10 x 10” square paper. Lightly distress the edge with a tool designed for this purpose or simply use the blade of a scissor. Add gesso randomly and non-accurately all around your paper using a spatula. With a dots stencil, add a little bit of modeling paste to give dimension to your background. Glue this paper on a 12 x 12” beige paper from the same collection.
Diecut lace border from the paper collection and glue it under your green paper on the left side and another small piece on the right side.
Stamp the Oakberry lane blossom flowers with the fern green archival ink on red and orange paper from the sea breeze collection. You can color the petals a little bit with a dauber and the fern green ink. Cut it with the coordinating die. Shape the flowers by using the 3D Shaping Mold and give further shape with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit tools. Add stamens in the center of the flowers.
