The blue sunflower bordered patterned paper is the background of the 12 x 12" layout.Mat the 4 x 6" photo in white cardstock and then a larger mat in the blue patterned paper, and white cardstock again. Use foam tape between the photo mat and the patterned paper for a little extra dimension.Die cut the Decorative Circle from white cardstock, and using a circle die, cut from yellow patterned paper. Cut both of these pieces in half. Adhere the pieces together. Place the matted photo to the right of center using foam tape. Then adhere the die cut pieces above and below the matted photo.
Stamp and die cut 1 of each of the flower clusters using brown ink (Staz On- Timber Brown) onto white cardstock. Stamp and die cut 1 set of the medium and large sunflowers, and 3 sets of the small onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using brown ink. Add color to the leaves using green ink (Stampin Up- Old Olive) and daubers. Add color to the flowers in the clusters using 2 tones of yellow ink (Stampin Up- Crushed Curry, Delightful Dijon) and a waterbrush. Add the same 2 tones of yellow ink to the flowers using daubers. I like to add slightly darker ink tones to the tips of flower petals for a little extra dimension.
Shape the flowers using the coordinating 3D shaping mold, and the clusters using your shaping tools. Assemble the flowers and add Prills to the middle of each flower (Express-O Yourself). Let dry.
Add a cluster to either side of the matted photo. Then add flowers on top of the clusters and the larger flowers next to the matted photo. I also tied and added burlap string loops around the flowers for some fun texture.
Add brown pearls to the die cut pieces above and below the matted photo. Die cut out the word LOVE using the Letters & Numbers Die and add below the left cluster. I also added some phrase stickers.
