The photo for this lay out measures7.8 cm x 6.8 cm.
Take the design paper and trim the white top strip away. Apply the structure paste to the design paper by using the mask so the design will show from behind the clustering later. Leave to air dry. While you are waiting, prepare the Creative Embellishments chip pieces by 1st covering them with the versa-mark. 2nd over with the gold embossing powder and then 3rd apply heat with the heat gun to melt the powder. Trim the love of my life chip between the f and the m so you have two pieces. Stamp the roses and leaf images from both the Classic and Blushing collections. Color, die cut and bring shape to all the images with the shaping tool kit. Apply a sugar coating to the roses and rose buds by first applying the clear drying glue to them, then dip the roses and rose buds into the diamond dust. Leave to air dry. Trim the photo to size. Sandpaper the edges of the photo to give a distressed edge. Before arranging and adhering all to the LO base, back the design paper with the grey board / cardboard so your base will stay flat and be able to carry all the embellishments applied. When the glue is dry, start by arranging and gluing down the photo, leaf swirls and roses to the lower right side of the LO. Arrange the flowers, leaf swirls and chips as seen in the photo of the LO. Arrange the chip sentiment. Apply the ? pearls to the open flowers and place here and there between the swirls and leaves. Add a few ? pearls to complete the flower cluster trail on the left.

Above you can see all that glass glitter on the roses....close up is not that great but you do get to see how much was used. When the roses are done. Add wet glue and dip into the glass glitter jar. Tap the excess away into a container a couple of times when dry as no matter how careful you are the excess glass glitter will still away and you find it every 

Look at all this creamy yum! Love the masked background!....and look at that gold embossing.
Makes the water colouring that much fun. 

I fell in love with the wind up's. Victorian gentlewoman. and men.
I want at least, 10 in each style!

The chips are covered with gold embossing powder...I thought perfect for this LO. 

Love the glass glitter. It catches the light perfectly, a little more subtle than stickles and glitter but does the job just as well and makes a refreshing change.

In these close ups you get to see all the details of the 1/2 pearl placements.

Small details do's candy to the eye.....

Here you get to see close up the creamy

The print in the paper design made it so easy to arrange the roses with the trailing leaf swirls as a base. Once again, the 1/2 pearls enhance the beauty of the flowers.The gold gentle man tipping his hat to the gentlewoman in the lower section of the LO...brings the story together.
