The Bakery - Couture Creations

Hello there everyone, It is Adriana here today sharing a page I created for
 Couture Creations.

Now this layout is called "The Bakery".

The photo, was taken on our recent holiday in Northern Italy, in one of the beautiful old towns in the foothills.  There was this little cute shop with an old bicycle at the front. The bike had a basket with fresh herbs and flowers. The smell of the freshly baked bread and cakes was drifting down the old pathways. 
We had to stop and buy some beautiful fresh bread and cakes. Yummy :)

The name of the shop is called " Bottega del Pane" which translated is "The Bakery shop"

They had the yummiest biscuits as well. Everything was fresh and organic.

Of course, I created this layout with the latest releases Couture Creations products.

Here it is  "THE BAKERYusing the latest paper collection called
Hearts Ease paper collection
 this paper pad collection comes in two sizes 12x12 and 6x6
there are stickers, stamp sets and Ephemera Pack of collectables.
The Couture Creations Flowers are sprayed with bright yellow and vintage rose ink sprays.
 I think this brighten up the pages of this paper collection.

Here are some of the Couture Creations. products I used to create this layout.

On the top of the page , I created a pleated curtain type of fringe with the Hearts Ease paper collection
decorated the edges with C0721999 Vintage Gold Gemstones

 The pleats are created by hand, just folding and pleating and adhering them to the underside of the top papers.

I then mounted my 17cm x 10 cm photo on cream card stock, 
adhering it to the centre of page.

I cut several of the Elegant card cuts die - Mercato Flourish  CO724098
with some of the green paper from the
 Hearts Ease paper collection

When I first saw this flourish it reminded me of the seaweed or vine leaves.
I used the flourishes to create many leaves and therefore created a vine leaf around the page. 
I also added a little of the Glitzin glamour glitter glue C0721976 on the leaves.

Using the Hearts Ease paper collection Set of stamps,
There are 3 different set of stamps.
I used the large Butterfly stamp from the 
C072400 Hearts Ease Borders and Butterflies stamps 

I stamped several butterflies on card stock and coloured them in
with watercolour pencils and water brush.

I then cut out the butterflies and adhered them to the page with C0723817 3D Glue spots
adding a touch of Glitzin glamour glitter glue C0721976 Crystallina to the butterflies, for a touch of sparkle.

The flowers are the amazing white flowers
from Couture Creations White Bulk Flowers
they are 
C0724298 Camden Beaded Cottage flower
C0723019 Beaded flower with script paper
C074300 La Belle Vintage Blooms
C0724297 Camden cottage rose 3 cm.

These flowers can be coloured in what ever colour you want them to be
How brilliant is that, you can colour them with inks, sprays and paints.

Hope you like my project for today
