FWAB design team blog hop april 2013

hello scrappy friends!

FLOURISH with a BLING and the design team, we are trilled to invite you to our very FIRST blog hop! 

a lot of new EXCITING things happened at FWAB over the past year - a new design team, some stunning new products (the ELISE flourish and flower set) and the most exciting of all is FWAB going retail! that means you can buy all your favourite bling straight from the FWAB store!

here is the project i've created with one of my favourite FWAB products - ELISE flourish and flower set of course {and not only because my daughter name is ELISE too ;-)} and FWAB Adhesive pearls



i used the lovely ELISE flourish & flower set - i used a silver flourish with dusky pink and rose pink flowers and the latte flower is from another set.

i wrote my title with a pencil first and then i used various FWAB adhesive pearls - blue, plum, olive green - to embellish it. because there are 5 different sizes pearls in every package, you can get really creative and create your own pearly letters and numbers!


the flowers in FWAB elise set are AMAZING! the colours are easy to use and they look great with any paper!



to fit my design, i had to cut the rhinestone flourish in two parts. 


i used WEBSTER'S PAGES "everyday poetry" paper collection for this layout. i did a lot of fussy cutting, embossing and glittering!


for my background i used PRIMA marketing ledger paper pad and the "circular lattice" with TIM HOLTZ' distress ink pads "weathered wood" and "worn lipstick". 

to give more prominent llok to my background paper i used a lot of mini cling stamps from TIM HOLTZ "mini ornate"...


... "urban chic" and "shabby french" and i doodled around the edges - the FABER-CASTELL pitt artist pens are perfect for adding doodled accents to your art.


i hope you enjoyed my creation!
