DT Project For Noor Design - For My Daughter

Hello everyone I'm here today with my DT make for the  Noor Design Blog. I'm gonna show you something I made using lots of goodiness from Noor Design UK.
I have made a gift for my daughter (well daughter-in-law but we regard her as our daughter) I thought I would use one of the fabulous 'Cheese Boards' & make her something with a photo of her gorgeous grandson Arjay.
I have to say I enjoyed making this although I was extremely critical of myself & I was certain my daughter wasnt going to love it...........however she TOTALLY loved it & its on display in her living room :-)

For the flower I used 'Flower die 3' & cut 3 layers out in hessian, 2 brown & 1 white & then topped it off with a Kort & Godt rolled flower & added a bead to the centre.
I also added a 'Flower Border' along the bottom which got the gesso treatment first. 

I made us a small flower display & 2 of my favourite dies with the flowers. I lurve this scroll die, its my most used die I think. I also added a bit of colour & inked up bits using Weathered Wood distress ink. I also added more flower border painted with gesso at each side of the hessian.
Flowers from LLC.

Here is is my gorgeous grandson Arjay. I layered his photo onto some hessian which I also sprayed with white florist spray to soften the colour. I then added Muslin fabric, corrugated card painted with Gesso. I also added the Ladybird Edge die around the image turning into a corner by cutting it in half. That also got inked up. I think this is a super cute die ;-)

Now excuse my thumb on this pic but if you look I've used the Vintage Wood paper pad, added structure paste all around the edge & scraped bits randomly all over the paper. I also stamped the 'Silhoette Clear Stamp' at the bottom, defined with brown & white gel pen & added pearl dots to the centre using a pearl pen.

I ordered Raffia for this project & after waiting ages for it arrive I had finally changed my mind & using something else.......however after taking all the pics the raffia then arrived. So I added some as well & took one final pic with the Raffia on lol.
