Step x step – Bloom & Grow by Nerrida Mitchell

This months project by Nerrida has focused on some of the new Prima STRAWBERRY KISSES papers.

Materials List:

  • Prima Strawberry Kisses ‘Daydream’ & ‘Raspberry Lemonade’ papers.
  • Glimmermist -Vanilla Breeze (not pictured)
  • American Crafts Pearl chipboard thickers – Marquise Buttercream
  • Little Yellow Bicycle chipboard words – Clothesline
  • Kasier paper flowers – Baby blue, cream, baby pink
  • Kaiser Pearls – bronze
  • Websters trim – red ruffle
  • Websters lace – natural cream scallop
  • Collections chipboard frame (not pictured)
  • Collections butterfly
  • Black archival pen
  • 3D foam adhesive
  • Glue
  • White or cream acrylic paint

Step 1 – Cover the centre of the ‘raspberry lemonade’ with some scrap paper and spray around the edges with Glimmermist (try to spray once along each edge or your page will warp with being too wet).

Step 2 – Add rhinestones to the corners of the border then draw a pen line roughly around the sprayed border. Cut an 8″ x 9″ piece from the top lefthand side of the ‘Daydream’ paper, making sure you leave the large flower cluster intact (cut around the large flowers as you can see I have done in the bottom corner) and use double-sided tape to adhere it, then machine stitch right around the border in white cotton (the double-sided tape will stop it from moving as you sew).

Step 3 – Adhere a 25cm piece of lace across the bottom of your photo with double-sided tape. Cut out the group of 3 large red flowers and 1 small together. Cut out the green and other red flower separately. Then make an arrangement using different thicknesses of 3D foam, covering your cut edges with the next layer (as shown). Tuck a few Kaiser paper flowers underneath with glue and fold one in half and tuck and glue it in (as shown). Cut a few leaves from scrap pieces of green, bend them up then glue tuck and glue them also.

Step 4 – Place the chipboard frame over a scrap of cream or white cardstock and spray once with Glimmermist.  Add a large and small flower, then spray again a few times till happy with the impression.

Step 5 – Remove the frame, trace roughly around the shape twice, cut around the shape then add journalling. Adhere to the page with 3D foam. Cut out the small group of flowers (shown) and the butterfly and arrange as shown, adding a medium-sized folded pink flower as well.

Step 6 – Roll up and glue a couple of inches of the ruffle trim and dab it with paint using a toothbrush, then tuck/glue it under the flower shown. Bend the green flower petals up for more dimension.

Step 7 – Finally, add your sticker word/title.

All done!
