Here's a layout that was submitted at Soul Scrappers for their Around the World Challenge - The Netherlands (ATW6.5). You can see the challenge here.
Here are the inspiration photos:
Here's what I created:
This was such a beautiful, peaceful place. Andrew and I walked here every chance we could and stayed in this area for hours! Loved it!
I was inspired by the photos of water, trees and the colors brown, tan and green.
Paper: Colorbok, My Mind's Eye, K&Co.
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Gems: Home Made
Sizzix Leaf Die
Journaling Block: Pixie Press
Sketch: Page Maps (May 2005)
I stumbled upon this creation by shear accident. I came across these "pieces" from a flower bouquet I recently purchased and thought they would look so cool on my page. The problem was that I had NO idea how to use them. So, after many attempts, this is what I came up with. I LOVE how it turned out! After placing the "branches" under the journaling block... I tucked the leaves within them.
The tag was cut from a template. Ribbon was stapled at the top. The title is a sticker and leaves were tucked under the title. And a few more flowers were added.
Because the "branches" were a bit thick on the bottoms, I adhered the journaling block with pop dots.
And here's my flower cluster in the lower right of my page. Flowers are Prima and the gems are home made.
A closer look at the flowers.
And one more look at the branches and leaves.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
