You are so beautiful to me (Meg's Garden/2Crafty/Helmar)

My post today is showcasing a DT layout made using Meg's Garden papers (and embellishments from her store), 2Crafty chipboard and Helmar adhesives.

This is a picture of my daughter on her first birthday. Everything on this layout with exception to the chipboard came from Meg's Garden Store. The beautiful papers are from the "Forget Me Not" and "Le Belle Jardin" collections. I just love how you can mix and match the collections so well.

Here is a close-up of the peek-a-boo lace (great way to use my Green Tara lace scraps!) and the chipboard title. I used white distress crackle paint and then smudged light yellow and brown chalk ink to give the cracks and edges some definition. See how the papers look hand stamped - so gorgeous!
Here is a close-up of the beautiful blooms Dusty Attic blooms and corner vines leaves. I primed the chipboard with gesso and used a few green and brown inks to polish it off. It really makes the delicate white blooms stand out don't you think?
To stick it all down, I used Helmar premium craft glue for the paper layers, 450 quick dry for the embellishments and acid-free glue for the photo.

Thanks for dropping by today!
