Yes, it is that time again. Welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday. I don't know about you but I can't every week until Wednesday. No, not because we are almost to the weekend. I love to see all the newest projects for Heartfelt Creations. Today my project is a layout featuring the two newest releases, My Guy Collection and Western Elements Collection. These two collections work so well together and are so versatile.

How it is made:
The base of the layout is a 12”x 12” piece of white card stock. Stamp the fence image on the bottom left corner in Tuxedo Black ink and then color the image with markers and colored pencils. I used the Gamsol on the area colored with pencils to help blend out the lines and give the image a smooth appearance. Stamp the rock image near the fence in Tuxedo Black ink. Color image with markers and pencils. Again I add the Gamsol to the area colored with pencils to blend out the lines. Stamp the fence image on a piece of white card stock. Color the image with Copic markers and then cut out using the matching die and a die cut machine. Stamp the windmill image on white card stock with Tuxedo Black ink and then color the image with Copic marker. Cut out the image using a die cut machine and a matching die. I attached blades of the windmill to the windmill base with a pop dot to give the image dimension. I attached the windmill to the top right side of the layout. I then added the fence on top of the windmill at the bottom. Stamp two of the grass images on white card stock with Cottage Ivy ink. Cut out the grass using a die cut machine and the matching die. Attach the grass to the front of the fence area. Stamp the flower image at the top right side of the layout with Tuxedo Black ink. Color the image with markers and colored pencils, using the Gamsol to blend areas colored with the pencils. Stamp several of the rope images in Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock. Color the ropes with Copic markers. Cut out the rope image with a die cut machine and the matching die cut. One piece of rope is the right size for the 4” side of a picture. To make a rope that will fit the 6” side of a picture, you will need two pieces of rope. Cut one piece of rope in half using the lines on the rope as a guide. Cut the ends off of both ends of the rope, again using the lines on the rope as a guide. Attach one half of the rope to each end of the other rope. Making sure that you place them so that your rope piece ends up being as long as you need it to be. Attach the rope pieces to the picture to form a frame. Cut a mat of white card stock at 5”x 7”. Cut a mat of black card stock at 5 1/8”x 7 1/8” Attach pictures to the white mat and then attach to black card stock and then attach matted pictures to the layout. Stamp the hat and boot image in Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock. Color the image with Copic marker. Cut out the image with a die cut machine and a matching die. Attach the hat and boot to the corner of the pictures.
