"We Love You", another layout with "Promenons Nous"

It's Monday again and time for another one of my layouts to go up on the blog of Les Papiers de Pandore.

Once more I have focused on the lighter colours in the collection. The sage green and the chocolate colours will mix so easily with other colours, and especially pastels in my opinion. Here I have chosen to combine with a lavender/lilac tone. I think it looks quite fresh.

I was inspired to hand cut the clouds (from a paper I embossed with my Cuttlebug) by the little clouds that form part of the collection on the embellishment sheet. The beautiful little chipboard frame that I backed with musical paper is from Imaginarium Designs as are the two small butterflies that I painted lavender and finished off with some stickles. The tiny black letter stickers are by Basic Grey.

I created the title by combining Chipboard words, also from Imaginarium designs.
I painted the letters white with gesso.
The gardenias are mulberry flowers from my stash.

I inked around the edges of the papers with a brown ink pad and then I painted the edges of the green paper with lavender paint. I even smudged some paint onto the other papers.

I just love all the feminine elements on here and they go so well with the delicacy of the beautiful patterned papers.

Have you been able to get your hands on this collection yet? If you live in France you can find it in your local scrapbooking shop, but for all of you abroad I recommend you try one of the French online stores. I am sure you are going to love working with these papers. Next time on the Pandore blog I shall show you a page with some of the more deeper colours,...It looks quite different from this one!

I hope you enjoyed your little visit here. I know Blogger has been stopping people from commenting, which is sad, but thank you for stopping by anyway!
Enjoy your day!!
