Gosh, I've had the biggest scrapping month ever and I'm managing to get a lot of blogging done as well! I must be slipping behind on something - I suspect it's work!
I have a new layout to show you using those amazing Bohemian Bazaar papers from The Scrapbook Store. I had a lot of fun and a lot of frustration with this one! I knew exactly the sort of photo I wanted for this layout and finally found it. It's a couple of years old and it's been patiently sitting on my computer waiting for the right occasion.
First the fun - aren't those fussy-cut flowers amazing! The papers are so rich and detailed that even smaller pieces like these make such a big impact. I finished off the cluster with a stunning Manor House Creations peacock feather, available here. and a Zva Creative bling flourish, available here. Here's a close up:
I used a label from the sticker sheet as the background for my title - all very easy really. ( I removed the friend's name from the journaling as she's not a relative of mine.)
Here's a section of it:
I added a few splashes of red and black paint and scattered a few flowers from the sticker sheet to help balance the page.
You might have noticed the border. It was really easy to make. Here's how:
Lay a piece of film strip washi tape on a craft mat.
Run a piece of double sided tape along the centre of the washi and adhere a strip of patterned paper that has been cut to fit between the edges of the film strip.
Tear the whole thing down the middle.
Adhere it around the edge of the page with the black side to the edge.
Bye for now.
