Life is wonderful with you!!

Good  morning bloggers!

Before we talk about my new project I would like to thank all of you for appreciating my last card. 
And I would love to welcome Sindhu Kanagavel for joining us.

Coming back to the current project. I loved making it, but this time its neither a card nor a tag. I have tried something new, a LAYOUT.  That is what I like about crafting. Just like Medical Science it has wide horizons. All you have to do is to keep expanding your wings.  Here is a sneak peak of the Layout.
Love Layout

I got inspired by Chirali's moodboard on the Lulupu.
Here it is..

I have tried to incorporate most of the elements of the moodboard i.e. Hearts, stripes, crumpled sheet, flowers with leaves, "I love you"sentiment, feathers(with golden tips), thread, red, pink and craft colours.

To make this LO I first took a craft colored sheet with (golden tinge) from an old wedding card and distressed its edges with scissors and slightly pink and black shades of something..(suspense...learned to create suspence from Pooja from  reusing,cards & quilling ). Attached this sheet to a black one with distressed edges. Then glued black(ish) strips from PP at diagonal ends that I had created long time back following Pooja's pictorial.

Attached a lace again distressed in black and pink shades. Took a black piece of sheet and crumbled it. Uncrumbled it taking care not to tear it and applied gold acrylic paint on the raised area using brush. Attached it over the base and covered it with blackened gauze pieces. Over it added a circle distressed pink, a photo area , sequins, some hand made flowers and drying leaves and feathers from garden.

Two hearts were added using foam tape to give some dimension. One was distressed  and covered with black twine and other covered with pink loose glitter.
Love Layout
Used two sentiments, one was stamped("life is wonderful with you") and other hand written(" I love you"). Distressed its edges too..
(using an old makeup kit no longer in use:Two benefits-1. So many shades..
                               2. Smells good :D)
Love Layout

Finally added golden tinge to everything ..the flowers, the leaves, the gauze..(Hope I haven't overloaded it with gold).

Here is the final LO..
