Mother's Day Inspiration with Susie

Hello and welcome!  Susie here today sharing a Mother's Day inspired mixed media layout featuring the Chiffon Collection.

 
Last year for Mother's Day my daughter gifted me with some beautiful flowers for my garden!  I have never had foxgloves before so of course I had to scrapbook the event! I decided to  go with a little dimension and applied some Whipped Spackle through a stencil.


After it dried, I replaced the stencil and added some color using several shades of Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalking Ink, starting with the lighter shades and moving to the darker:  Light Moss, Seafoam, and Green with Envy. When I was happy with the distribution of color I added the panel to a layered background.

 
I trimmed out a quote strip from Chiffon 500 and distressed the edges.  After inking it with Warm Sand I adhered it with dimensional foam tape.

 
I layered on some scalloped trim and purple rhinestones...
 
...and added banners and a small photo in the upper right corner. I used a black pen to add a doodled frame on the photo after I distressed and inked the edges.

 
Next I used Razz-Berry and Brandywine PowderPuff Chalking Ink to custom color tissue paper...

 
...and die cut some flowers...
 
...to embellish the layout!
 
 
 
I hope your Mother's Day is something special and you remember to take pictures!
