NEW "Les Papiers De Pandore", "Maison de Campagne"

Today I want to share a layout that I made using the latest collection from Les Papiers de Pandore.
It is a French paper manufacturer run by the fabulous Julie Blanc.

The collection is called "Maison de Campagne" and consists mostly of lovely yellow, green, red and browns. The patterns are beautiful and romantic.

So without much ado , this is my layout!

The colours adapt themselves easily to Spring and Summer photos, or you can do as I did this time and convert your photos to sepia or black. I often find that to be a nice change. Especially if you scrap a favourite photo that you have used once or twice (...LOL!)  before!

For this lo I used two sheets with the same pattern and cut out the pattern from one of them. By sticking it to the top of the other page I got sort of a mirror image. I so love the yellow roses on these papers.
The collection comes with pretty stamps as well. The red fan shape that is almost like a border here, is one of the shapes that have been made into stamps.
In my post a few weeks back when we previewed "Maison de Campagne" I had a picture of them all.

I covered a page from a minialbum by Maya Road with some of the pretty red paper and used that for my title.
I cut out flag shapes from the new papers and a tiny piece of turquoise from the previous one called "Garden Party" I held the banner together with some bakers twine.

I used some stickles here and there to accentuate elements in the patterned paper and add a little sparkle.
I added a couple of Prima flowers in a hue to pick up on the brown in the papers.                                  

This was what I had to share today.
Thank you so much for visiting and for leaving sweet little messages for me. They are so appreciated!!
I hope you all have a lovely day!
