"The Taylor Garden" Scrapbook layout with Graphic 45 Secret Garden Papers

Another Layout using Graphic 45 Secret Garden Papers.  The background was created with the Blue Secret Garden text paper and I put the Crafter's Workshop stencil "Flower Shower" down and misted with Forest Green Glimmer mist.  I then added a circle of the striped paper and a rectangle of the green Meadow Lark paper with a fussy cut border out of the blue.  I used the opposite side of the Meadow Lark paper that had journalling tags and used them as mats for my photos.  Everything was inked with vintage photo.  I painted some scroll chipboard pieces that I had with brown acrylic paint and fussy cut some flowers and added to the scrolls.  I tied raffia to one end of the scroll and formed a half circle around the top to complete the circle and hung a title (cut with spellbinders opulent ovals die).  I used Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares die for the frames on the girl photos and Megan Elizabeth All around scalloped circle for the frame on the boy photo.  The butterfly chipboard pieces were misted with Frost Glimmer mist.  Thanks for looking!

Mixed Media "Angel" Scrapbook Layout with Graphic 45 Secret Garden papers

Back again with another layout.  This layout is of my 3 year old Grand Daughter Gabby.  I Used Graphic 45 Secret Garden Papers,  Manor House flowers, chipboard garden bench, cardstock birdhouse die cut. I used Dylusions Melted Chocolate Spray over a cobblestone mask for the background.  I also then used my Craftersworkshop "Art Is" stencil with some texture paste that I added a little peach acrylic paint to, and then smoothed it across the stencil to leave the little areas of text on the background.  I fussy cut sections of flowers out of the paper and popped it up in the top left, bottom left, and top right corners.  The small flower bottom left with the rhinestone center I made out of silk and I cut the petals with a chipboard template and then glued the layers together.  I crocheted the tiny pink flower with the pearl center (bottom left) and then sewed pearl seed beads around the center and sewed a larger pearl in the center.  The angel is cut from Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings Collection paper "Falling for you" and the title "Angel" was cut using SCAL and my Cricut.  The birdcage is "suspended" from a piece of silver chain with a pink flower and silver leaf dangling from it.  Hope you enjoy!  Thanks for looking!
