It has been quite some time since I shared a layout using the beautiful French made papers from Les Papiers de Pandore.
When it was time to scrap this precious photo of DD Alexandra celebrating her 18th birthday I immediately thought of the lovely soft hues of Maison de Campagne. I wanted to make a feminine layout that was not too laden with embellishments or layers, to highlight the photo of Alex with her grandmother.
I used different patterned papers from the collection and also a couple of the very useful stamps that are available.
I did not want to cover up too much of the rose on the patterned paper. i decided to cut around it and 'lift it' over the photo. That way it would add to the dimension of the layout and it would still be visible.
I used a piece of green ribbon that I looped to give the impression of leaves.
I raised my stamped title with pop dots to make it stand out against the background. I even added a Zva Creative bling swirl that I cut into smaller pieces. Sometimes the big swirls can be too overpowering.
A few days ago I was lucky enough to have a page spotlighted among the top three at Two Peas. It was one of my pages I did for Color Combos galore some time back. maybe you remember it?
That's all for today .
Hope you are enjoying the sunshine!
