I Am Roses Project - "Love" Layout

I have had this fabulous Prima paper in my stash for a while, I remember how excited I was when it first came out.  This paper also came with matching chipboard shapes with glitter detail - chipboard shapes are one of my favorite embellishments (next to flowers of course!). 

  • Prima Paper - Raspberry Tea Collection "icy sweet", "peach cobbler"
  • Prima Paper - Strawberry Kisses Collection "Raspberry Lemonade"

It was time to break out this paper and create!  With so many yummies in my stash it was hard to narrow down exactly what I would use in this layout.  I accented the paper with my most favorite Karlas001 Etsy crystal leaves, tea dyed Prima lace, Prima Lovely burlap leaves in brown and a Prima Say It In Pearls center for the gardenia.

I also tried a new technique by coloring the stems of the flowers with Lindy Stamp Gang Dark Chocolate Truffle Stain.  The stems come in green but for this layout I wanted to color all the stems a deep chocolate brown to match the layout more.  The stems take on the color very well, I dipped them in the LSG container and also used a paintrbrush - super easy and I love the results. 

Now for the flowers - LOTS to choose from but I narrowed it down to 9 different kinds!!!  I wanted this to be a lush special layout so I pulled out my favorites!!!!  Fellow design team member Bona (livelovescrap on YT, had gifted me some Curly Roses...I have to say I LOVE them...they had a different texture and different shape which I love!!! I used THREE of them on this layout.  I quickly ordered some Soft Pink and Baby Blue Curly Roses after I found out I loved them so much - can't wait to use them on future layouts.

Now to the flowers...
