Today's Little Details by SUE CREASE

Hey there,

Today I'm back to share with you all a pretty layout I've made for The Mad Scrapper Blog . It uses 2 photos taken in  the morning sunshine as we walked our dog along the riverside. We stopped to go through a gate and both remarked on the moss growing on top of the post! You can just see how we first saw it in the photo slightly hidden under the main one. You could almost imagine if you only saw the close up would you think it was an aerial shot of a cliff top.

Today I have chosen to use papers and elements from the glorious Simple Stories Vintage Cottage Fields Collection  along with one other paper from the Denim+Friends collection by Maja Design. 

As you can see I tore the Hello Happy sheet to remove the butterflies, then I inked Peeled Paint distress ink through a leafy stencil on both papers. I've kept the butterflies for another time! I broke out my deckle edge scissors and cut away a 1/4 inch from the right side of the blue paper. Before sticking down I stitched in black along one side of the peach and the opposite of the blue in peach.


         Ooh look there is one of the saved butterflies on the page below!


Then I took the paper Beautiful Moments and fussycut the right hand flower section and added it to the page but I lifted the left hand areas first (you may be able to see the shadow in the photo). Here is a closer look down the path, I matted this photo on a piece of Dusty Pink from the basics-paper-pack-12x12 that matches the papers.

Using some of the cardstock stickers I began to place them around the layout, some I added to card before using foam pads to stick down to give more dimension. In the photo below you can see I used 3 to make a banner.
The photo below shows the fussy cut piece nicely, it also shows a little bee teasing the bird lol, the bee was on the other side of the hello happy paper. You can also see the inking better too. I added a little sparkle to the wings of the bee and down the centre of the yellow butterfly.
Here is a closer look at the clifftop lol. To finish off my layout today I have added Nuvo drops and glitter glue. 

Thanks again for stopping by today, please leave a word or two to let me know what you think. Also I must say Janine has some wonderful collections in store and this one has many parts to it which I have not yet used so I encourage you to drop by. Her bricks and mortar shop is not open at the moment but she has a wonderful online store open 24/7 for those of us unable to sleep!! 

Take Care,
