Here is a layout I have created for Soul Scrappers Challenge called "In the Garden". You may recall that yesterday I posted some photos of the beautiful Bird of Paradise flowers that are growing in my garden.
We were posted a selection of items to be used on the layout - and here they are.
Now what did I do with them? Will firstly I used the two die cut flowers as stencils onto white cardstock with Gelatos that I had shaved and made into a liquid with warm water. I also flicked some of the liquid onto the cardstock. This I then cut down to a 11.5" square and distressed the edges (not shown) and placed onto blue cardstock.
I deconstructed the vanilla burlap (hessian) and soaked it the diluted solution.
One last photo with my layout resting on the planter that houses the Strelitza Reginae.
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed reading about how I came to create this layout. Have a great day. I am feeling much better today - still have the cold but not coughing as much, hooray!!
