May Flower Challenge by Kathryn


Design Team Member Kathryn submitted this layout for the May Flower Challenge. She said:


I am really, really super, super pleased to be on the DT for Scrap Our Stash Challenge!!! Scrapbooking is a huge part of my life and I love being challenged to really use up my stash. Like many of us, I am sure, I buy way too much stuff and I need to be pushed to actually use it!! For the May challenge it was great to be able to use some of the jars of flowers I have gathered over the last few years, especially the purple ones. I love purple and I have a big kilner jar full of purple flowers, but I never seem to need that colour. The photo I have used this time was perfect though and I have gone to town! This is Emma at 2 years wearing my sunglasses on holiday. Sadly, as she gets older the willingness to pose for photos is receding rapidly!
Recipe:
Bazzill leaf embossed cardstock. I have painted a frame around the background to break up the empty space using willow and lettuce Adirondack dabber paints. I painted it in quite a slapdash way so it didn’t look too precise. · The papers are off cuts of Basic Grey Euphoria papers arranged so they are peeping out from behind the photo, and the edges inked with versa magic purple hydrangea ink. · The flowers are a mixture of Petaloo, Prima leaves (love these, on my second packet) and some lovely purple Iris flowers and roses. I have then added coordinating buttons and some bling gem flowers and a Rockstar gem title. Hope you like!
