For this project, I have used a photograph that I had taken some time ago when one of the local creeks were in flood. I have always felt this photograph was visually engaging, there is just something about the picturesque and serene beauty of the location that grabs my attention everytime I look at it ... so when my latest pack of B&B goodies arrived in the mail containing the gorgeous new B&B chipboard Wildflowers border, I knew immediately that together, this photo and Wildflowers border would compliment each other perfectly on a layout ... thus the creation "picturesque".
I played around with the chipboard Wildflower border and added two different applications to it, to get the result that I did. Firstly I sprayed it with some Auburn coloured glimmermist. When it was dry, I then stamped over it with an embossing stamp pad, then applied some copper embossing powder and heat set it. Next, I grabbed some sand paper and in random areas over the border, I burnished off some of the copper embossing to reveal the glimmermisted area that was underneath .... don't you just love the amazing effect it created? ... such rich colours and the texture is awesome (wish you could touch it!!).
I have also used the chipboard That 70s Alphabet for my title. I applied some acrylic paint and also some dimensional magic to each letter.
