Hello, friends, it’s Richele, thank you so much for joining me today! Spring is one of my favorite times of the year and I love all the pretty flowers that it brings. I have a beautiful decor piece to share with you using the new Tim Holtz Botanical Collage Paper just look at all the gorgeous flowers! The Collage Papers are semi-translucent and comes in a few different prints. Botanical, the one in my project today, which is black and white and can be colored, Aviary has beautiful printed birds, Floral has dreamy roses printed on it and then Plain that can be stamped on or altered to your heart’s content. Perfect for Mixed Media and collage.

4. Paint the Frame and the side of the Panel with the White Gesso.


5. Use a Waterbrush to create a tear line on the Collage Paper. Work in small sections leaving some of the background areas to create interest.

7. Apply a layer of Distress Collage Medium to the background, carefully add flowers and leaves, apply a thin layer of Collage Medium over the top and let dry or dry with heat tool. Tip: when the tissue is wet it will tear very easily so be careful.

8. Stamp text over the background with Hickory Smoke Ink from the Distress Permanent Mixed Media Ink Palette.

9. Color Leaves with Distress Markers using a few colors like (Forest Moss, Peeled Paint, Evergreen Bough). Use a cotton swab to blend the ink. I like using a few colors to create a more natural look for the flowers and the leaves.

10. Color the flowers with Distress Markers (Abandoned Coral, Broken China, Fossilized Amber, Ground Espresso, Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry) and blend with a cotton swab. If you color over the lines not to worry use a cotton swab to clean up the edges.

11. Apply black cardstock to one side of the Sizzix Foam Adhesive Sheets, cut into small pieces to fit die area and die cut letters “love + life” using the CutOut Script Bigz XL die and the Vagabond.
