The main background paper is "The Reading Room" and I added a strip of "The Garage" paper.
The Our Story chipboard was first given a coat of gesso, then painted with white acrylic paint. Next I embossed the whole title with Pearl embossing powder. Then using the Super Grunge stamp, I embossed the title with Ivory embossing powder. I love the effect! The Bits of Honey chipboard pieces were embossed with Fern embossing powder.
The red rose buds are actually from the Homespun Blooms flowers that I took apart and made into rose buds (you can see it in my tutorial). The rest of the flowers on the page are from the Homespun Blossoms collection and look really nice with the colors in the picture. Below the flower you are able to see the Green Ivory embossing powder that I used with the Crackle Textures stamp. You can also see the Marine glitter on the flowers and Lemonade Seedlings that I added around the flowered areas and other spots around the picture.
In this picture you can see more details and see the Tattered Newsprint stamping that I did around the picture.
The Tattered Walls Ephemera was a nice touch to accent the areas around my picture.
And now, here is the video tutorial I created. I hope you find it helpful and fun. :-)
