Karine's October share + video tutorial

Dear crafty friends,

It's Karine here today to share with you two layouts
. The first one is called «Love» and it features my brother's family.

I love this picture of them.
 My brother seems so happy and in love, that I wanted to show that in my layout.

To do so, I started with the Love Heart Frames, that I embossed with a dark brown
 embossing powder. It was my focal piece.

To give more texture to my layout, I used pieces of the Grid Panel, embossed in copper. 
I placed those pieces here and there, behind my embellishments clusters.

I also used one of the Fine Heart Borders and cut it in pieces.

I embossed them with a gold embossing powder and placed them here and there, 
over my flowers, in a curved shape. I love the effect.

My title piece is the word «Love» from the Line Words - Happiness Borders. I used 
the same copper embossing powder than before to emboss it.

Some other close-ups...

I created a video tutorial for this layout. Enjoy.

My second layout is called «Family» and it features my two kids with their cousin.

This time, my focal piece is the title.

I embossed the «Family» title with a turquoise embossing powder, to go with my mixed media background.

I decided my picture needed some kind of framing, si I choose one of the 6'' Circle Revolution Frames and embossed it a deep teal color.

Just peeking from underneath my flowers clusters are the Mini Branches, also embossed
 with a deep teal embossing powder.

I love the effect against the background.

I then selected the Leafy Silhouettes, embossed the same turquoise embossing powder
 than before and scattered them around my flowers clusters.

I love the delicate shape of those Leafy Silhouettes.
