Lovers' Garden - Leaves, "Grass", & Stepping Stones

Welcome to the second instalment of my Lovers' Garden.

The Garden Floor or "grass" is a Chipboard Sheet the size of a placemat.  I was intending on covering the open spaces with petal/flower soft but OMG - I had enough to do! LOL
I sprayed the leaves in a number of different greens and using this as a base for it gave colour and texture and it worked out quite well even though I never intended for it to be that way!
After they were sprayed I put them through the big shot to give them texture then rubbed more distress ink over them to give definition to the texture.

The stepping stones were made from chipboard inchies.  I used pumice stone distress stain and mod podged them - then when dry I put them through the big shot as well to also give them some 'stone' looking texture.

Here I was playing around with placement - they great thing about the FWAB pearls is you leave them on the acetate and you can move them around easily decided where they fit best :-)

I will explain the arch in my next post :-)
