Live Beautifully – Patrica Basson

This is such a beautiful photo of my daughter Michelle…you might be seeing it a few times more! 
For this page I used Kaisercraft Papers from the ‘Betsy’s Couture Collection, Petaloo Flowers and my favourite combination…Dusty Attic chipboard and Lindy’s Stampgang…

I treated both the title and Swirly Vine as follows…After a layer of Gesso I randomly dabbed on some coarse Texture Paste. I then painted with some LSG Magicals ‘Shabby Turbine Teal’ and ‘Oak Leave Olive’ Mica’s mixed with Soft Gel.
The Ornate Corner was embossed with LSG Embossing Powders, ‘Café au Lait’ and ‘Queen Sheba’s Silver’.

I used the largest of the Vine Frame #2, embossed it with Stampendous Aged Embossing Powders ‘Teal’ and ‘Ivory’ and used pieces of it between my flower cluster.
