I wanted to share a layout that I made that is really not my style but I am trying to explore and I actually loved the Layout. I am particularly proud of the flowers that I made and I want to thank Myrna @ http://myrnamarcanocrafter.blogspot.com/ for offering a class teaching us how to make different types of flowers
and now I am an addict!!

The word beautiful is from the Home Decor Cart and
the tag is from the Sweet Treats Cart.
I split a frame from Gypsy Wanderings in half and placed them in opposite sides. I inked them with Royal Blue to make them stand out.
The word Girl is from Gypsy Wanderings.
You probably can't tell but I distressed the edge of the photos and inked them with a Martha Stewart ink Walnut Color. I also distressed around the pages with my
Tim Holtz Distressing Tool.
These are the flowers that I am so proud of!!
I love how they came out!!
I did it with 4 flowers from the Home Decor Cart
( I used the shadow feature)
I did a technique that was shown in this
month's issue of Creating Keepsakes.
What I did basically is applied a coat of glossy accents
and let it dry overnight.
Then I put it on the freezer for like 30 seconds
(although the tutorial says 15 seconds)
and bent the picture to make it crack. The glossy accents go soft again so I repeated the freeze and crack part three times and then I inked it with the Martha Stewart Walnut Ink. Is a shame you can't see it that well in the picture but it really looks like an old picture.
I heat embossed some butterflies and the paper left over from the frame and cut them out. I just glued the center and bent the wings to give it some dimension.
I hope you liked my layout as much as I like it!!
Oh, I almost forgot to say that I am entering this in the
Cooking with the Cricut Challenge: Spring Flowers.
