Layered Arches Flower Card

 Hello friends!

I've got another project up on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog today.  Click HERE to go to the post.

This card has a textured background that's very easy to do with Adhesive Sheets and crumpled tissue paper.  All the directions are on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog post.

I've added dimension to the arches with 3D Foam Strips.  The painted watercolor flowers also have dimension with 3D Foam Circles under petals and leaves.  

Stamped and fussy cut or die cut flowers could easily be used instead of a hand painted watercolor flower.

I hope you find some inspiration for your creative journey!

Thanks for stopping!

Make Your Heart Sing Tag

 Today, I've made a vintage looking tag to share.  I really struggled with coming up with an idea for a project this time.  So I started sorting through bits and pieces for past projects, things I couldn't quite throw away.  I found some hearts and a verse that would work with it and this tag evolved...

I used an easy technique to apply torn pieces of old book page to start the background on the tag.  Simply apply   to tag and then lay pieces of book page on it leaving gaps between pieces.  I used Distress Glaze to sprinkle into the exposed adhesive areas and heat embossed with heat tool.  From there, I applied several Distress ink colors rubbed onto the tag.  I also stamped foliage and script with permanent black ink.  

All these details and more are on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today. Just click HERE to see all the directions with photos.

Thanks for visiting!
