Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Cut the light patterned paper to 11 x 11”. Cut out a triangle portion in the top right-hand corner. Distress all of the edges. Find and cut out the pattern with the ornate green pattern and mat the top edge with purple patterned paper. Distress the edges of this too. Adhere in behind the cut triangular section and adhere to a full sheet of brown cardstock. Cut a strip of the wood grain purple patterned paper that is 1.5 x 12” and adhere across the layout. Cut a strip of corrugated cardboard that is 0.75 x 12” and adhere up the side of the background.
Mat the 4 x 6” photo in 2 layers of white cardstock. Add the photo using Kraft Photo Corners. Cut a large mat for the double matted photo from purple patterned paper. Adhere the matted photo to the pattern using crafty foam tape. Die cut 2 of the Regal Pocket Accents die from brown cardstock. Adhere in back of the top and bottom of the purple patterned paper. Adhere this whole piece on top of the corrugated cardboard strip using crafty foam tape. Add gems to the brown die cut pieces. Find and cut out the small decorative journal block and adhere to the right of the matted photo. Find and cut out the “Live in the Moment” sentiment and adhere to the right of the matted photo using 3D foam squares.
Stamp and die cut 1 set of the large and medium Wild Aster flowers onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using grey ink (Shadow Grey), stamp and die cut 2 sets of the small flowers using the same ink and paper. Stamp and die cut 5 sets of the leaves using dark brown ink (Staz On- Timber Brown). Stamp and die cut 1 of the Wild Aster plants using grey ink. Stamp and die cut 1 of the branches using dark brown ink. Add color to the flowers using ink and daubers (Dyestress- Cabernet). Add color to the leaves using green ink (ColorBox Seaweed).
