Claude Monet's Flower Gardens - Giverny, France (6-15-2000)

Here is the last of three layouts featuring Claude Monet's gorgeous property in Giverny, France. 
Photos were taken during a European tour that my daughter and I were so lucky to go on.

This layout shows just a small glimpse of Monet's gardens. 
For a better perspective on the size of the beautiful flowering trees and lush undergrowth
 filled with poppies, greenery and other flowers,
my daughter was right around 5-1/2 feet tall.

The older Prima paper collection Fairy Belle page "Marcelle" seemed very fitting. 
I settled on using Wycinanka cut outs to decorate the layout. 
I acrylic painted all of them in white and then added white pearls for extra femininity and dimension.

The scanned reproductions of the original photos do not capture the true stunning fuchsia colors.
Such a pretty frame for this gorgeous fuchsia poppy growing in Monet's beautiful gardens.
Prima's lovely stencil seems to emulate pollen floating in the air!

To keep the photos as focal points, I added only three pretty white apple blossom flowers with some greenery.
Thanks for visiting and have a great rest of the week!  Lisa : )
