BeYOUtiful by CHARLEEN WALES

I had a few more photos of my daughter wearing her brother's clothes that I wanted to scrap, and I so loved how my first DT page turned out that I decided to make a complimentary page. I haven't made a double page layout in about 10 years but I do like to make what I call complimentary pages, which are generally using photos of the same occasion. Although I want the pages to look different from each other I try to incorporate similarities so that there is a flow across pages of the same occasion.
I started this page off very similarly to my 1st October DT page . I fussy cut the pattern either side of the Elegance paper and I cut strips from the Lovely paper showcasing the roses. I then layered the rose strips under the Elegance fussy cut paper and placed it onto black card.
I once again used my modeling paste through the Tim Holtz layering stencil called Roses, which is available from The Mad Scrapper.
My photos I backed with white tissue paper from my stash and black card.
I embellished my page with the Green Tara pink roses from The Mad Scrapper. I don't think I have ever used 3D paper flowers on a page before. They are so pretty. I placed pink thread under each rose creating a bit more dimension and texture on the page.
I also fussy cut the little butterflies from the Lovely paper. I just love them, so they are small and delicate. A great contrast to the roses.
I also used the chipboard butterfly, I applied white gesso to it, once dry I applied Distress Oxide Tattered Rose to the bottom of the butterfly and Kitsch Flamingo to the top which is from The Mad Scrapper.
As I didn't want the title to stand off the page and rather wanted the title to be subtle, I used black foam alphas on the black card.
This is not my normal style or papers I would consider buying for myself and I have never used a Graphic 45 collection before but I absolutely love how this has turned out. I hope that this has inspired you to try something different.
Happy Scrapping Xx
