Follow Your Heart

The Secret Admirer collection would have to be one of my all time favourite Kaiser releases.  Totally heart everything about this gorgeous collection.
I did venture to my happy, girly place when I put this one together. 
I wanted it to look like Miss E and Missy N were meandering through a beautiful garden: 
A little backrgound work was done to the base patterned paper.
I started with the reverse side of the 'Demure' paper:

And used the doily stamp from the clear stamp set with a mixture of gesso and impasto paste (mixed together first) to add a bit of texture.  Once dried, areas were misted with Heidi Swapp Colour Shine Primrose and Georgia Peach, Key Lime Pie Glimmer Mist and a touch of Water Cooler Mister Huey's Color Mist. A little white gesso was applied randomly over the top with a piece of stiff cardboard.

Doily elements cut from the 'Coy' paper

Were layered with doilies from the Collectables pack.  The large frame element was fussy cut from the 'Sweetheart' paper and this was positioned to sit behind the photo to create a garden arch or gazebo effect.  
Pretty paper blooms add to the 'garden effect': 
Sea Breeze, Coral, Buttercream and Sage were clustered together.  The tips were lightly touched with gesso
Floral fussy cut elements create a lovely garden bed for the paper blooms to rest upon.
 A few heart doilies, a sentiment and sweet push bike from the Collectables pack finish it off.
