Hihi! Hope you are all well & enjoying your Summer vacations if you are on them! We are all back to work this side but nonetheless my spirits are very high despite my recent computer troubles. I witnessed a miracle yesterday & it has put me on top of cloud nine! God is so good!!
So back to my My Creative Scrapbook layouts - this is the 4th of 5. I used my new mesh tape all over the background & am simply captivated by this stuff!
I added in a bit of cheesecloth too as I just love the texture it gives.
I rubbed some colour off the background with an eraser, to reveal the white core of the paper, before adhering the tape, then I ran an almost dry mauve inkpad over the top of my background to tone it down & grunge it up a little bit.
I snapped this photo of my eldest daughter during her Easter vacation from university, when she brought home a Chemistry book weighing a good 5kgs...and had to spend a bit of time studying!
Apart from my fussy-cut elements from the Webster's Pages Plum Seed papers, I've used Basic Grey Knee Highs & Bow ties printed chipboard & their flowers.
The butterflies are from Pink Paislee's latest collection, Cottage Farms & are the perfect mix of shabby beauty & textural grunge.
I tore & layered my papers.
Tearing is one of those non-trends that just always looks right.
All the floral & foliage elements were cut from a single piece of patterned paper. Thanks for your visit today -
I really appreciate you stopping by!
