|My niece, Meghan, in 2011
For this layout of my niece, I used the Kaisercraft Lilac Whisper papers from the Scraps of Elegance July kit, "Country Chic". I used the Main Kit , Coordinating Paper Add-on and the Floral Add-on.
|Coordinating Paper Add-on
I started with the Kaisercraft Whisper Neutral paper from the Main Kit and ripped off the top and bottom, then layered it over strips of the Mist paper. I used the rest of the Mist paper to die-cut a large decorative circle and the Hydrangea paper from the Coordinating Paper Add-on to cut some small doilies. I tucked some notecards from the Main Kit under either side of the large circle and matted the photo with the gingham paper that was also included in the Main Kit.
The large white doilies and the teal rectangles framing the photo were cut from cardstock from my stash. As I usually do, I layered each die-cut over a dark cardstock copy and offset them slightly to accentuate the edges. I inked around the edges of most of the die-cuts and papers with Aquamarine chalk ink.
These are the dies I used:
The chipboard pieces were from my stash. I painted the border pieces teal and while the paint was still wet, lightly dabbed in some white paint to make the colour look less flat. For the leaf flourishes, I embossed them with Ranger Antiquities Verdigris embossing powder and applied a bit of Aquamarine chalk ink.
The larger flowers by 49 and Market were from my stash. The medium and small roses and the small white flowers were from the Main Kit and Floral Add-on.
Thank you so much for taking a look today!
