Truly, Madly, Deeply Shabby LO - The Scrapbook Store - Scrap Around the World

Hi Everyone,

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 TaraManor 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..
Enjoy your day/evening
Sandie
