The other day I shared the very first page that I ever made using Graphic 45 papers.
I always think their lines look lovely but up until now I have found them quite difficult to use
and hard to cut into (because they are so pretty).
With the recent line 'Botanical Tea', however, all those thoughts disappeared. As usual Melinda Kelly of SOE kits have picked an excellent collection of papers and embellishments and the kit, Floral Fantasy, is such a delight to work with! You can see the photos of the kit here and also buy it HERE.
I fussy cut various elements from the detailed G45 papers and added a few dimensional flowers to go with them. In the flower add on was a large Prima jute flower that I coloured using some paint from a previous kit. I used the Silks 'Pink Grapefruit' paint.
In the kit was also a sheet with small diecut file folders and patterned tags to go with them.
Some of them have sentiments on them like this one that says 'Just because'.
The large white flower is by Manor House Creations.
I think the papers here go so well with the sweet picture of our pampered kitten Lady. She has such beautiful green eyes. And also I do love polka dots and these on green are especially cute!
I raised some of the details with pop dots.
I used a CraftersWorkshop stencil 'Chicken Wire' size 6x6 for my background and the mini roses are by various, including papirdesign and I am Roses.
Even though it is raining here at the moment there is a distinct promise of Spring in the air.
The temperature has been slowly rising and today, Saturday, is longer and lighter than yesterday.
It is so nice to know that the sun 'has turned' as we say here and that hopefully the best is yet to come!
Thanks for visiting here today!
I am thrilled for every little comment you feel like leaving me here and hopefully you were able to find a detail or two to inspire you! Any questions are welcome.
