As usual Maja Design papers do not disappoint. Their ranges are always fabulous and Miles Apart is no exception. As my photo had lots of blues, I also used another sheet from the range (Keeping Busy).

I started by painting all my chipboard pieces, the title, and the back of the large frame with white gesso. When the frame was dry, I applied texture paste through the Starry Night Stencil. The Leafy Flourish and heart I painted with White Pearl, the title with Hazelnut and the frame, once the texture paste was dry, with a mixture of Ice Queen and Magical Pond. I then gently added Old Silver and Vintage Gold wax over the painted frame. I then applied Rose Gold to the edges of the frame and the heart. Once the Leafy Flourish was dry, I applied a coat of crackle varnish.

My base cardstock is a sheet of Bark layered with the reverse side of A Few Words cut to 11¾” x 11¾”. I cut 3 distorted squares 10½” square with a centre opening of 7½” square from Bark, Have Faith and Keeping Busy. I distressed the edges of all 3 distorted squares and the piece of A Few Words and inked all the edges of the papers and cardstock with vintage photo. I then layered the 3 distorted squares on top of A Few Words off setting each one. I applied strips of chipboard to the back of The Keeping Busy and Have faith squares to give them dimension. I then attached the frame putting the left-hand corner behind the Have Faith square and the top two corners on top. I brought the level of the frame up by adding chipboard to the back. I then added the leafy flourish, heart, title, and flowers to the layout.

I love this photo of my Mum and unfortunately, we are Miles Apart. Not sure when I will get to see her, Dad, and the rest of the family again so it is great to be able to scrap reminders of good times.
