Calla Lilies

Here is the next in a series of flower layouts that I have been scrapping lately. 

These are my calla lilies.  I’ve had them for years and they grow so well in a planter on my porch, shaded from the hot sun.  I photographed them just the other day.  I am especially proud of the center photo!  Through the lens, I didn’t “see it” the way it actually came out.  I was concentrating so much on the flower itself, that I didn’t realize the way the leaves were circling it!  This is one photo that I have to pat myself and my Konica Minolta camera on the back for!  WOW!
I chose beautiful paper from the Kaisercraft Be-You-tiful collection because the shade and tone of pink really matched the pink in my calla lilies : )
 
I used one of my most favorite stencils by Prima named Décor 2 and I used Prima White Crackle.
I stamped a very intricately detailed butterfly & hummingbird with VersaMark watermark ink and then heat embossed with a gorgeous Sterling Silver powder by Recollections.  I dressed them up a bit with tiny rhinestones by Recollections.

White cheesecloth helped to frame the main photo and pretty lace sprayed with Lindy’s Starburst color Salt Water Taffy created a nice area for the other two photos.   A small resin frame was perfect for the Wild Orchid Crafts calla lilies that I painted on the edges with LSG Salt Water Taffy and then sprayed the whole flower with Twinkling Tinsel.
Thanks for dropping by!  Have a wonderful day!  Lisa : )
