Tsunami Rose - Life Abloom New full size printable Journal kit

Hi everyone I hope that you are all well and happy . Welcome to my little bit of blogland . Today I would like to share with you a wall hanging that I have created for my daughter using the Life Abloom full size printable journal kit . We have been very lucky on the design team to be given such gorgeous papers to work with, they really are gorgeous and incredibly versatile .
Here is the wall hanging and I hope that you like it.
 



Goodies used
Base: I cut a piece of A4 card from a box and added to that a piece of A4 200gsm smooth card, next I attached using tacky glue one of the A4 printable sheets from the Life Abloom printable journal kit, I chose this sheet in particular because of the lovely space in the centre of the page which enabled me to add the Daughter to the page. I have also popped onto the bottom right corner rose spray a little purple gel pen to highlight the rose spay a little.
Daughter: Chipboard letters sprayed with Dylusions shimmer spray in fuschia which I added across the page using tacky glue.
Embellishments: A selection of flowers, feathers and pearls from my stash formed the flower arrangement in the bottom left corner. 3 lengths of 10mm organza ribbon in pinks formed the bow above the lettering and I have also added some self adhesive pearls to the corners.
Sentiment: From the Life Abloom kit. I have added a little of the same purple gel pen I used on the rose spray around the edge of it.
This kit is absolutely gorgeous a pleasure to use and I feel is a must for any crafter as it is so versatile ,to be honest it has my head buzzing with ideas for its uses!
