Here we have a breathtaking example of a dimensional layout! Behold this adorable Steampunk Spells LO that Susan created. First of all, we love those sweet dogs! They are so cute! You can see how Susan used layered fussy cut elements, flower embellishments and pretty chipboards to give this LO pretty dimension. The vivid colors of Steampunk Spells add even more charm to this sweet work of art. Here is what Susan had to say about this precious creation.
"This is a layout of my two little doggies and together, they are indeed ‘Double Trouble’. I used the Witching Hour patterned paper as the background because I like the verse from Macbeth - “Double, double, toil and trouble”. I layered fussy cut details from the patterned paper along with flowers, chipboard and bling for the layout. The embellishments are centred around the photo, allowing it to be the highlight of the piece." -Susan
