True Friend

Hi everyone! Natasha here with a special layout to share. For this layout I used AMAZING papers by Pion Design. I ADORE Pion Design papers! Pure elegance and beauty! (Just a minute... wiping up the drool.)

The photo is of my beautiful friend, Mistra. We have become very close over the past year and every day I continue to be surprised at how alike (and dorky) we are. She is my twin, although I am still working on my Aussie accent LOL.

The beautiful circular frame around my layout is part of the Floral Frame Set (DA0576) by The Dusty Attic. I inked the frame in several different colors and added Fairy Dust Glitter to the flowers.

To achieve this layered look with flowers, I adhered the flowers with different types of adhesives such as Helmar Zapdots, 450 Quick Dry and Liquid Scrap Dots.

The large flower you see here is hand-made. You can find the tutorial for my Cabbage Rose HERE. I used Donna Salazar's Rose Creations dies and assembled the flower with my favorite adhesive... Helmar 450 Quick Dry.

Here I layered a paper strip cut from one of the Pion Design papers, vintage lace and seam binding.

So very true... sniffle. :o)

The title is made from Dusty Attic's Typewriter Font Alphabet Set (DA0143). I used Zapdots (cut in half) to adhere these letters to my layout.

I tend to add a lot of hand-stitching to my layouts. I love the added texture it gives.

I adhered this transparent butterfly using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. Can you see the adhesive? Nope!! This amazing products adds dimension but is 'discreet'.

Thank you for visiting! Have a beautiful week ahead!
