I wanted to tie in the background paper to the sentiment panel and floral cluster, so I used my newly acquired Hot Cocoa Liquid Pearls, dabbed some on the paper and with a paint brush, made sweeping strokes for a wispy type look. And the secret to manipulating paper and having it fold gently, as opposed to hard creases is to lightly spritz the paper with water prior to crinkling. And then it dries exactly as you make it. One point though, if you're going to distress the edges with a paper distresser...make sure you do that while the paper is dry. Otherwise that little contraption eats your paper. And not in a good way. :) I did layer half of a LaRue flourish under the sentiment panel and added the metal wing to the top. The flowers are a combination of paper flowers, tulle accents and a couple of twig/funky things I cut off an arrangement in my house. The stamps are courtesy of Paper Sweeties.
Here's a picture so that you can see the dimension...and also the little foam squares that I just could not cut small enough to not show:
Here's the sketch we're working with:
I hope you'll have the chance to play along with us!
