'On My Own' using Marion Smith Designs 'Posh' collection

Hi there! I  hope you are all well and rested after all the Christmas festivities :-) 
I am sorting out 'my house' and throwing things away and the whole place is a bit of a mess at the moment, but hopefully things will be better soon,....
I have a page to share today that I made with a previous kit from Scraps of Elegance. 
The papers and some of the embellishments are by Marion Smith Designs. 
It's all very yummy, and the collection is called 'Posh'.

I have mixed up the patterns quite a bit and added beautiful Prima Marketing flowers in matching colours. The small hanging clock,(that I painted with gesso) is by Marion Smith as well as the fresh white resin rose above the photo. ( Junque & Gems collection)
You may have noticed thet I have scrapped quite a few photos of me lately,........ 
They are all from a photo session we had over in Wales when I was invited to the Sizzix European HQ. Paula Pascual, who is a Sizzix blogger as well as designs dies for them,offered to photograph myself and two of the other girls. We had a good laugh and a thoroughly enjoyable time! I am pleased with how the photos turned out.

 Talking about Sizzix,...I used the 'Scalloped circle' here as well as the greenery from 'English Garden' framelits set.

Most of the Prima flowers here are from the 'Cigar Box Secrets' collection.

As you may have seen, I will be part of the awesome Blue Fern Studios team for 2015 
and I have used some of their chipboards on this page.  As you can see I used the clock and clockhands as well as the butterfly.

I did a lot of layering on this page and it was quite fun to make.

I painted around some of the design elements with gesso to calm the patterns a little and in that way make certain parts stand out more. 

I hope you like my page and  I really enjoyed making something that has nothing whatsoever to do with the season. -Actually today was the first day we had  'real Winter' this year. 
For the first time we woke up to some snow and it was actually 10 degrees below zero (centigrade), -so really cold for us here in the southern parts of Sweden :-)

Take care and I'll see you soon again!
