Be You- Guest Designer at Petaloo

I was very honored when the owner of Petaloo asked me to be a GD this month on their blog.

There is also a blog hop next week at the Petaloo blog so come join us and celebrate.

They are having a product exchange with Simple Stories' new collection "Vintage Bliss" and its very girly so I was able to use lots of flowers. Here is a sneak peek of one of the projects I made.
Come join us next week to see everyone's projects and some more of mine.



I masked a cherry blossom Crafters Workshop template with some gesso and added these pink forget-me-nots to the stems.


Whenever I have a wooden background paper, I like to roll it up to make look like peeled wood or bark. I truly love this effect and have been using it a lot lately.


Finally I decorated around the photo using lots of different flowers.


Supply list:
Papers: Simple Stories
gesso, cheese cloth, CW template, black pen

Petaloo flowers:
 Forget-me-nots-pink
Ruffled roses- pink
Frosted roses: teal/aqua
Petaloo accessories: pins

Oh wow, this is definitely one of my favourite layouts from all your creations. I so love the woodgrain background with all the pink layering on to of it. Not to speak of the precious subject.

Oh, yum! I love the whitewashed wood background, especially with those trailing flower sprays against it. How cool to have the dimensional flowers added to the stencilling - altogether delicious!
