Please Welcome Natasha as My Guest Blogger Today
Welcome, Today I am so excited to bring you my THIRD I Admire You- Guest Blogger
Natasha is one extremely talented person I was so thrilled to find out in this big world of bloggers.
I am sure you remember me linking to many of her flower tutorials.
One of the reasons I admire Natasha, is because she is so generous. Not many people that are as talented as her are willing to share their experience ,tips, and hints to attempt techniques like hers.
You will be blown away with the details in her project today.
Let me introduce you to Natasha from Moments Of Tranquility
Hi everyone! My name is Natasha and I am so honored and excited to be Dawn's guest today. Thank you so much, Dawn, for this opportunity. :o)
This layout was inspired by the Prima October BAP Sketch. It is filled with Prima goodies... papers from different collections, flowers, masks etc. The photo is of my daughter a few years back on her first day of Pre-K. She looked like such a little diva in her denim skirt and matching hat. She LOVES to dress up and is a major girly-girl. But her personality is far from that of a diva's. That is why I named the layout, "Exquisite Diva... With a Heart of Gold". She is the sweetest little thing. :o)
The beautiful bracket that surrounds my layout is a chipboard element created by The Dusty Attic (Bracket Frame Set DA0326). I painted and inked the bracket and adhered a piece of Prima paper to the back of it.
Sigh... don't you just love flowers? LOL. I am definitely a 'dimensional scrapper'. I love to add layers and layers of gorgeous product on my layouts.
This Baroque Frame (DA0542) is also a chipboard element. I adhered decorative pearls to the flourishes for added interest. The frame itself was inked with pigment ink and randomly embossed with opaque white embossing powder creating a lovely texture.
To create this stitched flourish, I used a Prima stencil and masked it using pigment ink. I then covered the masked area with clear embossing powder. To add texture, I poked holes along the design and hand-stitched the flourishes with embroidery floss.
This is the top of the Baroque Frame. I think the pearls add such elegance to this beautiful chippie.
If you haven't already noticed, I have a slight obsession with eyelets. LOL. So of course I had to add a decorative corner to my bracket using eyelets.
The chipboard portion of the title was painted white and covered with Donna Salazar's Fairy Dust Glitter. The word 'Diva' is made up of Thickers foam alphabet stickers.
I created this tag out of patterned paper. I used an embossing folder to add texture, and I stitched a border around the tag.
Isn't she amazing??? Are you as in awe of her work as I am?
Please stop over at Moments of Tranquility- and check out more of her beautiful creations, I am sure she would love to have you visit.
Thank you so much Natasha for being my guest today-It really was a pleasure and you are a true treasure.
