This layout is inspired by the January SwirlyHues Challenge. I used the sketch that they provided along the color palette and came up with this layout! The picture is of Linda and her husband. Linda is the owner and CEO of Heartfelt Creations and she kindly allowed me to use her beautiful picture.

I used Robin's Water Distressing Tutorial for my background papers. I love to water distress on my layouts since it gives them a lot of depth! I also used Lisa Gregory's Puffed Rose Flower Tutorial for my two blue roses.

I had a lot of fun working on this layout and used a lot of techniques on it and I can honestly say that I love how it turned out!

You can barely see it here but I handmade a doily mat for the picture. I'm working on a tutorial that I'll have up for you tomorrow so come back tomorrow to see it! For the title, I combined stamps and letter stickers. I stamped the word LOVE directly onto the background using black ink. I then carefully painted the heart that forms with the swirls in blue and added Diamond Glaze to it to make it stand out. I added the rest of the title in white above and below the stamped image.

I stamped and colored two Flirty Fleurs Precut Set flowers and added them to the left side of the picture.

I made a few flowers (white roses, blue puffed roses, and small blue sunflowers), stamped and die cut a few leaves and swirls, butterflies and arranged them around the picture. I love all the depth that the flowers give this layout!

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Water distress your sheet of pattern paper and one coordinating cardstock. Adhere onto a brown cardstock base the water distressed blue cardstock and the pattern paper. Ink the raised edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. Die cut two Decorative Lace Borders, cut out the bottom side and place as shown on the left side and in the bottom (string a cream ribbon through this one before adhering). Distress two pieces of pattern paper and layer them as shown on the left side over the die cut border. For the doily photomat, die cut 9 small doilies from the Layered Scalloped Posy Die Set and adhere behind a 5” white circle. Crop your picture into a circle a little under 5”. Adhere to the photo mat doily and place over the layers. Die cut a few white posies and layer them over the doily. Stamp the word LOVE on the right side of the picture with black ink. Color in the heart with Stormy Sky distress ink and add Diamond Glaze over it to give it shine. Add the rest of the title from the Basic Grey White alphas. For the cluster, stamp the Flirty Fleurs Precut Set flower bunch twice, color the image with Prismacolor pencils, blend them with OMS and fuzzy cut them. Make a few extra posies, layer them over the flower bunch (keep a few for the rest of the cluster) and add a drop of liquid pearls to the center. Stamp two of the largest flowers and four of the smallest flowers from the Botanical Floral 1 Precut Set and die cut them with the matching Spellbinders Rose Creations. Glimmer mist them with Pearl glimmer mist and layer them to make your flower. Add them to the cluster and add Diamond Stickles to the edges. For the blue roses, die cut using the Spellbinders Rose Creations dies four of the second largest flowers and layer them to make a rose. Add puffy paint to the edges and let dry. After it dries, lightly heat the edges up with a heat embossing gun. Finish them by adding Diamond stickles to the edges. Stamp a few of the smallest flowers from the Daisy Patch Flowers Precut Set and die cut them with the matching die. Color them with Stormy Sky distress ink and layer two of them together to make the flower. Finish these by adding a few drops of liquid pearls to the center. Stamp a few leaves from the Botanical Floral 2 Precut Set and die cut them with the Spellbinders Rose Creations dies. Ink the edges with Vintage Photo and fold them in half. Die cut and emboss a few swirls from the Decorative Dutch Iris dies and cut them in half. Now, just build your flower cluster as shown and place on the left side of the picture. Stamp, color with Stormy Sky and fuzzy cut a few flowers from the Bella Rose Vintage Background Stamp Precut Set and add around the title and cluster.
