Every year I love to take my kids out to the bluebonnets to take pictures. It is almost a mandatory thing to do when you live in Texas, stick your kids in the flowers and take a picture. This year with all the freezing the flower were everywhere and so pretty, best year in a long time. Since we moved to central Texas I can find patches 5 minutes from house, so there was no excuse to get pictures this year. I got tons of pictures and this is one of those beauties.
I used tons of layers of papers and then added in texture with molding paste and mists.
You can see here how I used the wonderful circle cutter from Just Image. I cut them at 6 inches and 5 inches and used them as texture layers behind the picture. I also used Kreaxions punch 923 with the corner punch insert B on the burlap texture paper for even more dimension.
I added some mist and ink to the flowers to help them blend into the layout, without the mists and ink they stood out like more than the picture.
