Mintay Secret Place Layout Mum by Kim Ewins

Mintay Secret Place Layout Mum

Hello again…..Kim here with another project, my Mintay Secret Place Layout Mum, created using the super, lovely collection from Mintay, ‘Secret Place’

Today I have a special share.

The layout I am sharing is created for a very special day coming up on the 17th of November 2018. This is my daughter’s wedding day. A little while ago she asked if I could create a layout of her fiance’s mother. Jake’s mother passed away when he was 14 years old.

The layout I have created is to sit on a chair, (framed) at their wedding ceremony, (where she rightfully belongs!)

I thought this was such a beautiful and thoughtful idea from my girl

Here is what I created using some of the gorgeous Mintay Secret Place collection, Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Aloe Vera, 49 and Market blooms & a few other goodies!

To create this layout I used the Mintay Secret Place paper 05, then I took some pink cardstock and ripped a section 30cm x 12cm, lightly painted it with gesso and stuck into place using glue. Then taking the left-over pink cardstock (a section big enough to matt my photo, then using Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and a palette knife I smeared the paste roughly over the cardstock. Once this was nicely dry I stuck cardboard to the back of this section and stuck down on my base. Then I added more cardboard to the back of my photo and stuck it down.

I then added fussy cut flowers from the Mintay Secret Place 01 paper, and also some fussy cut elements from the bonus sheet from the Mintay Secret Place paper pack. I then added plenty of blooms from the 49 and Market Botanical Potpourri Bottle Green packs and I also added in 2 gorgeous pink blooms also from 49 and Market. Using some Art basics 3D Gloss Gel I added some Finnabair Art Ingredients Art Stones. Once the glue dried I added a little pink ink over the art stones, while I had the ink out I splashed a little extra around. I also added some chipboard and snuck in the title ‘Mum’. I also found a few pearls and stuck those at random.

I must say it was a real pleasure to create this layout for my future Son-In-Law…..something I hope he will always treasure.

The colours in the Mintay Secret Place collection went perfectly with Jake’s favourite photo of his mother, Pauline.

I am very sure she would have been amazingly proud of the man you have become.
