Welcome! Today I'm sharing a simplistic layout of my pink & white amaryllis flowers.
I love to scrapbook my garden flowers and always do my best to focus on the photos.
The larger photo taken 3-27-16 (Easter Sunday) is an amaryllis that is ready to spread out and bloom!
The smaller photo is the same amaryllis taken 3 days later when it opened up.I was completely elated with the Blue Fern Studios Blush collection "Reminisce" page! It has stripes just like my amaryllis flowers do! It has the varying rose & pink tones I needed and it gave me a color palette to work with which included a nice blue-turquoise. My title sticker letters are a perfect match to this color! I had run out of letters so I improvised....created 2 "n" letters using 'm'; created a "g" using a 'j' and an 'a'. LOL!
I stenciled with a mixture of Finnabair White Crackle and Lindy's Stamp Gang mica color Ramblin' Rose found in the Magicals set Victorian Bouquet. These areas were enhanced with some lime colored bling and LSG Starburst color Edelweiss Moss Green. This spray was also randomly splattered all over the entire layout.
I seem to forget about a lot of things in my stash, so I decided to pull out the perfect lime green square jeweled brads to fasten the main photo. I turned the center brads to form diamond shapes and then got the idea to tie on some embroidery thread. This then lead me to use the pretty silver tone closure.
A simple flower cluster was used to separate the two photos.
Lastly, I have never die cut a photo for a layout, but gave it try on the larger main photo of the soon-to-bloom amaryllis. I adhered the photo to chipboard also cut with the same baroque die. I like how it looks!
I used the same baroque die to cut a couple of papers to go underneath the smaller photo
and added foam tape for dimension.
Thank you so much for visiting and have a wonderful week! Lisa : )
