12 x 12 Layout "Angel" with Video Tutorial featuring Black Tie Affair with Denise

Hello BoBunny Fans!

It's Denise here today, to share a mixed media layout with you, using Black Tie Affair.  This layout was inspired and created in remembrance of our sweet and beloved dog, Blossom.  Gone too soon at 15 months old. I felt that this post would be a lovely tribute and lasting keepsake, showcasing two of my favorite photos of her.

I used the We R Flower Punch Board to get a base collection of petals, then fussy cut the flowers and leaves from the patterned paper, to add to this page.  Both techniques are so pretty and just add beautiful depth, texture and detail to the layers.

Below is a close-up of the punched flowers, as well as the laser cut chipboard pieces.  Next, I added some highlights with a white gel pen, some strategically placed droplets of watered down white gesso and a spritz of gold glimmer.  There is a full set of detailed visual step by steps in the video presented below.

I would love it if you had a look, and hopefully you can see the creative process and be inspired by it.

Thanks for spending a few minutes with us today. Hope to have you drop in again soon!

Have a fabulous day!
