Some Gardenia Bloom Girl creativity with DT member Louise :) :) :)

Hello Hello fellow Bloom Girl Fans :)

Today I would like to share with you a layout that I created using the fabulous new release Bloom Girl Stamp - Gardenia

To create a simple background pattern to compliment my black and white photo I have quite simply heat embossed the stamped image. To add a highlight with a difference I have swiped/brushed a band of purple Color Bloom spray mist across the face of the stamped image. I have colour coordinated the resin frame with the same spray mist.

To draw the eye to the framed photo I have adhered/clustered  some gorgeous black glass beads, sequins and resin flowers around the frame, along the sweeping line of the Bloom Girls  flowing hair. Tendrils of black cotton thread extend out from this clustering of embellishments and are made to look like an extension of the Bloom Girls hair.

Technique Tip: to adhere the glass beads I have applied Glossy Accents in and around the resin frame, sprinkled on the glass beads, allowed it to partially dry, and then gently shaken off the excess beads not adhered.

As you can see from these two close up photos I have higlighted the pattern of the resin frame. I have done with with a black ink pad.

So Bloom Girl Fans that is it from me for the moment, I do hope you are enjoying the Creative Design Teams creativity this month as much as I am :) :) :)

Cheers and Happy Creating!

Louise :) xxx
