Hello there, I hope your week is off to a good start!
It feels really great to be here sharing a page with you again.
For a few years now I have been part of the designteam at Les Papiers de Pandore and they always manage to create the most gorgeous collections. One of the fun things about this latest one (apart from it being gorgeous of course :-D...) is that it is called Scandinavia. Many of you will know that
I live in Sweden , ie one of the Scandinavian countries. I love the names of the different papers.
They are called Stockholm, Göteborg, Uppsala,.....and there is even one with 'my town' Malmö.
Isn't that great!!!?
I picked a few matching sheets and got to work. I prepared my background with gesso, mists and paints.That is always such fun and decides a whole lot the direction of the page. I cut into some of the papers and layered my design pretty central on my page. The doilies were also fussy cut from one of the sheets. Isn't that bird cute? I cut that one from one of the 15x15 papers in the collection.
In this shot you can see how I covered part of the painted chipboard from Blue Fern Studios with gold microbeads. That is a favourite trend at the moment. Love the micas and the beads a lot!!!
I am also a big fan of the Simple Stories Photo Stickers I used next to my photo. Fun!!
I love the little cursive words that I cut using the Sizzix Thinlits dies by Tim Holtz. It is called Friendship Words, Script. You can find it HERE.
The flowers are from I am Roses and of course Prima Marketing as are the leaves. I added a little washi tape here and there . I love to buy washi but I dont seem to be using a whole lot,....
Finally a closer look at some of the detail I hope you like it!
In any case that's all for today.
I will be back soon with some more Pandore goodness, and other stuff :-)
