Looking back with the Delightful Classic Kit


Our design team has done a beautiful job sharing projects with layering this week.

Today, I, Becky, have another project to share.

Layering is really one of my favorite things to do on projects, and since I typically do a lot of it anyway because I love layers and lots of dimension on my pages, this wasn't too much of a stretch for me.

It has been almost a year since my father in law passed away and when I found this picture of him and my youngest daughter kind of by accident while looking through old photos, I knew it would work perfectly with this month's beautiful kit.

Here is the page that I created with the Delightful Classic kit (still available here):

Instead of starting with a white cardstock base like I typically do, I used this pretty striped paper as my background. I started my layers by adhering stripes of the satin ribbon to the patterned paper. From there I added some gold spray mist droplets and then added two of the doilies from the kit. I used the reverse side of the doilies because I wanted a softer tone for my page. My photo was layered on top of that. So far we have 4 layers on this page (patterned paper, ribbon, doilies and photo). 

I then hand cut the beautiful flowers from the bottom of the Pink Paislee #10 patterned paper. I layered those over the bottom of my photograph, adhering some flat and adding foam adhesive to others. I then took a strip of the pretty tea-stained ribbon and triple folded it and then made a bow. Voila- a layered ribbon bow. I used liquid adhesive to adhere the bow to the center of the paper flower spray. 

I layered my chipboard alphas over the doiles at the top of my photo and then tucked the extra handcut flowers under the top right corner of my photo. I also added some chipboard, phrase stickers and some gold liquid pearls included in the kit. I layered some chipboard pieces below my photo along with that beautfiful jeweled flower by Prima. 

Here is another close-up of the layering at the bottom of my page. 

Thanks so much for stopping by the Noel Mignon blog today.
