Hello again and today I'm sharing a layout I have made for The Mad Scrapper Blog
using the sweetest photographs of my niece's daughter who is the most happy of little ones.
I started by taking a sheet of 49 and Market's Spectrum Sherbet collection (full list below) trimming it down by 3/4 inch and cutting it in half on the diagonal. I distressed the edges and then attached it only in the centre of both with a few dots of glue to a sheet of white and then I went about hand stitching along the edges but I matched the thread to the colour on the area paper I was going over (I hope that makes sense?).
Here is a photo that I think shows it better, you can also see how I placed the first 2 photos after matting them on to a sheet of 6x8 paper. I didn't stitch where it wouldn't be seen either.
I gathered together 49 and Market flowers, leaves, ephemera and laser cuts and started to put together my embellishment clusters. Fishtail flags and a fussycut butterfly from a Cocoa Vanilla paper finished off with some glitter glue.
Here you can see how well all the 49 and Market flowers work with the acetate leaves. I added a Prima one and a burlap leaf for texture.
This collection of flowers has added pearls to the main flower and you can see the Nuvo drops I dotted about.
I added a little hand written journaling and some faux stitching to them.
Just look at that smile 💖. At the moment this is my favourite photo of her but I must say it changes quite often. The title is from the ephemera pack. This photo is mounted on 2 sheets of card to lift it above the other two.
Thanks for stopping by today and I do hope you like my layout today. If you're looking for more papers and embelishments to add to your stash pop on over to themadscrapper.co.uk
