Mal, here with my first share with you all as a Design Team member and I'm super excited to show you my latest page using all things D-lish.
I'm totally in love with using lots of little embellishments on my pages at the moment.
I love to create backgrounds and then add a pic and finally embellish with bits and pieces. That's why I love all things D-lish; so many yummy embellishments I can add to my page.
So this page started out as just some blue and yellow Dylusions paint on a black background. To this I added some white using some stencils from my stash and then stamped randomly with a few of my fav stamps. I love creating layers. I also wanted to dull down the white and have it appear as part of the background.
From there I started layering. It's hard to outline the process I go through when putting a page together as it's bits here and bits there and I just add when I see a spot missing something.
I do, firstly, matt my photo (on black of course) then some random bits of plasterer's tape roughly cut into strips and then cut up the Bitty Bag from a past "Just Add Paper" kit to the left of the photo and some of the gorgeous teal spotty washi tape, also from a past "Just Add Paper" kit. Yes you heard correctly, I like to cut up some of my embellishments, that way I get more out of them. If I only want a little bit to show then I just cut off the bit I want.
Continuing to layer, I added two of the wood veneer triangles raw ( I love the look of raw wood on my pages) on either side of my photo, just underneath the photo.
I like focal points on my page and drawing the eye to the photo. I do this in 3's. So I added three of the black glitter dots in a triangle formation and doodled around them; I love doodling. How good are dots on any page?... I love circles.
Clusters of embellishments are my fav things on pages; bits layered to create depth to the page. Here I used some white wire and a few of the white stamens on both the left and right of the photo with some of the yellow enamel triangles and one of the gorgeous blue resin birds, like a nest.
Last but not least I took the wood veneer "cherish" and gave it a quick paint. I wanted a rough look so just a quick couple of coats of paint.
Final touches with some random rubons popped on here and there.
So that's how I created this page, hope you like it.
I'll be back later in the month with another page to share, full of D-lish goodies.
