Milk & Wine Lilies

The Milk & Wine lily is beautiful pure white with a cranberry colored stripe down the center of each petal. My BFF so graciously replanted quite a lot of my Dad's lilies, including these beauties.  I was able to photograph them recently in her garden.  As you can see they hang downward when they bloom and have a single stalk with multiple blooms.  I'm so lucky to be able to see my Dad's lilies doing so well and growing healthy.  

This is a very simple layout, but that's just the way I wanted it. 

The title is computer printed and cut out using a 1" circle punch;
and then adhered with foam dots in the perfect spot!

Before beginning the design, I applied a thin layer of clear gesso on the entire page.  Then to not over-power the photos, stenciling of a simple crackle design was done with modeling paste.  Light misting of Lindy's Stamp Gang's Starburst color Alpine Ice Rose added some color and sparkle to the page.

Using a craft nib dipped in "Razzberry" pigment ink, I drew stripes down the center of each petal on some white lilies to replicate the Milk & Wine Lily.  I added a few handmade curly white wire embellishments too.

Of course, the layout wouldn't be complete without the beautiful BFS chipboard heat embossed in Shabby White that has pretty gold flecks in it.  Chartreuse colored Prills make such an interesting texture. 
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!  Lisa : )
