The Elegy papers can be used as gorgeous standalones; most pages have a gorgeous decorative strip along one side. I decided to mix it up, cutting the damask/lace/rose border from the Tango sheet and adhered it to the Dreams sheet, along with some details from the Elegy and Baguette papers along the bottom edge.
For the background, I started by scraping white gesso roughly across the background, then spritzed the background with the Chrome spray included in the kit. Once that was dry, I added some stamping in black archival ink. I then applied heavy gesso through the stencil included in the kit randomly.
I fussy cut some of the frames from the Baguette paper for my background, and paper strips and butterflies from the Elegy paper, and adhered those as a background for my photo, a charming shot of my husband and youngest son courtesy of Brandie Coe Photography.
I love these beautiful blooms from Blue Fern Studios included in the kit; I tucked in some fussy cut leaves from the Elegy papers to plump up the cluster a little. To finish everything off, I dabbed some white gesso on the Thickers included in the kit for my title, and voila!
