'Pavement Culture' Layout - Flourish With a Bling - Prima Product Pick July 2013





Hello Lovelies :) Here is the full reveal of the sneak peek
 I showed you for Flourish With a Bling earlier this week.  


I used the Prima Product Pick as my colour inspiration.


I did lots of mixed media work on the background & took 
photos all along the way so I have a tutorial coming up soon!


I used Prima Romance Novel paper & treated with embossing paste,
 embossing powder, acrylic paints, inks, gesso & mists.


I stenciled & stamped, using the Prima gate mask & 'love' stamp.


The flowers & metals are from Prima & of course all the bling
flourish pieces come from the Flourish with a Bling store HERE!


I've mastered the art of the double-bow at 
long last thanks to this awesome video tutorial.  


I also tucked in a couple of brass clocks from PaperVine.
  They stock a fabulous selection of products in their store HERE.


Photo credit - my dear friend Gayle Price - thank you!
We both visited Paris in December/January last year 
(separately unfortunately so we just missed meeting up).  


She got a better photo than me so I asked her
permission to use it & she kindly agreed.
