This is my first creation for The Scrapbook Store this month, using the beautiful Shabbylicious paper collection, by FabScraps. I absolutely love this paper collection - the soft hues of blues, greys and pinks (pinks will be shown soon).
I used the new WOW Flourish 1 Stencil, to add some texture to the background paper. You can find the complete collection of stencils available 'HERE'. These particular stencils are clear, and are made of a thicker and harder material than other stencils I have played around with previously. There are some gorgeous patterns available...
Also, for September I decided to enter Scrap Around the World, Challenge. The challenge details can be found 'HERE'. Firstly, I used the mood board (below) as inspiration, the image of the young girl holding no doubt a parents hand - love is obvious. So I created a layout based on my love for my son, Jesse - I journaled extensively on the back of my layout on this topic. Then, I also used the monochromatic colour pallet of the mood board also, and created in a whimsical, shabby chic manner. Who says a boy layout cannot be pretty!! LOL
I used the Truly, Madly, Deeply chipboard title, by Scrap FX - painting it in white and highlighting edges on one side like a shadow with Waterfall Stickles.
This month I have made a promise to myself to start using some of my odd flowers up in my stash, and have successfully incorporated a pile into this layout from Green Tara, Manor House, and Prima Marketing - all brands are available at The Scrapbook Store. Bandage Gauze was used to soften around flowers....
...I will be back with 'pink' ... sometime very soon..
