Together Forever

Hi thanks for stopping by - Kathi here to share with you today a layout I created, I Created this layout using a template by TCW, I used walnut stain distress ink using a blending tool, I then cut out the and symbol to add to the 12 X 12. The 12 X 12 paper is from a Bo-Bunny collection. I outlined the symbol with crystal rhinestones, and placed in the two circles some added bling. I used Gina's Chipboard words Cherish, Together, Forever, & love, to help create this layout.  I used distress paint on the doilies and on the textured sheet. I used two frame dies from Sizzix to create the frames for the photo's. Finishing the layout with flowers from wild orchid crafts & recollections.

The words have been painted distress paint then I used glossy accents on top of each letter/words. 

 Behind the photo/frame I used Gina's textured sheet Swirled Hearts layered
 over a large intricate doily that was painted with distress paint. The swirled hearts 
was also painted using picket fench distress paint.

Flourishes 2 was painted with distress paint I layered the & symbol over the end 
of the flourish, and layered over Gina's large intricate doily, 
 a photo frame was layered over the texture sheet.
