Shimelle Head in the Clouds Layout He Is Not Perfect with Melinda Sweetman

Shimelle Head in the Clouds Layout He Is Not Perfect

Hello, hello fellow Anna’s Craft Cupboard fans! Melinda here with again today with my next share, my Shimelle Head in the Clouds Layout He Is Not Perfect.

I’m playing with the very fun Head in the Clouds collection designed by Shimelle again. Another 12×12 page today and this one is titled “He is not perfect but he is mine!”

Shimelle Head in the Clouds Layout He Is Not Perfect

As you can see for this one I got messy! I started with a textured piece of white card stock spritzed with some water. Next I used my Lindys Magical Shaker in Black Forest Black and sprinkled the dust onto the water. Here is where the magic happens! To get the look I wanted I added more water and dust as I felt the need. I dried that off with a combination of paper towel and also my heat tool. I just love the way that the black dust brings out so many colours, it really is magical!

Next I sprinkled some gold mist and added some texture using a stencil and some pink paste from my stash.

I set my white card stock aside to dry and started working on my layers for my photo. The first layer is some light pink card stock from the Head in the Clouds Project Pad. Next is some of the holographic mermaid tail print also from the same pad. I have also layered in a small doily from my stash.

The journalling I wanted to include is a little more personal so I chose one of the 3×4 cut aparts from the Project Pad and cut that into a tag shape; making a little pocket behind my photo for this to sit in. I cut a reinforcer and added some twine to finish that off.

I did some fussy cutting, again, from the Project Pad. Another of the 3×4 cut aparts had a castle on it which I cut out. For a previous project I cut out some clouds from another paper which I didn’t use but they worked perfectly on this page.

At this stage I felt I needed something extra for balance so chose the other pink card stock from the Head in the Clouds Project Pad to mount my page. I cut, distressed, tore and curled 2 of the edges of my white card stock. Then I stuck that to the pink card. And, of course, I chose a mist from my stash that matched good enough and added some sprinkles.

Did you know that Anna’s Craft Cupboard has their own brand of awesome acrylic titles? It’s right here under the Annabelle brand in the store! From the beginning I knew I wanted to use the “He is not perfect” acrylic piece for my title and added that to the right side. I popped up the fussy cut castle above the title with some clouds behind it.

To finish off I  stuck down my photo cluster and the clouds.
