One of my layouts from the Spring Issue of PaperHaus Magazine.

Hi again!!
A month has passed and we are allowed to share the projects we made for the latest PaperHaus Magazine. I had two layouts and one off the page project in this one. Today I will show you what I made for the PaperHues section.

I had a lot of fun (..and a lot of work,too....) creating the layered paper 'frame' around my layout.
I used a couple of sheets of white cardstock and cut strips from them. I crumbled and stretched my papers several times to achieve this worn look and stapled the strips to the page while  layering them. To stiffen them I brushed them many times with paint and gesso to create a hold. I also added some cheese cloth etc between the layers for a more varied look.
I can assure you this looks much more interesting IRL!! LOL!

The base of the lo is recykled corrugated cardboard from a box. I painted some of the colours from the palette onto the kraft but did not cover it completely

I embellished with some mistable banners from Prima as well as some other Prima goodies. The small chipboard frame is made by Imaginarium Designs.

Most of my flowers are by Prima but even a few from my stash. I love the large lilac flower that is from an older collection.

I used a border punch to create the inner frame and added a coral coloured pearl trim to it. I love the femininity it denotes. I also used some cream liquid pearl to add to the effect.

I hope you enjoyed a closer look at my lo.

In the same issue of the magazine was a frame that I originally did for a tutorial at My Scrapbook Nook. In the mag it looked a bit distorted as the dimensions were wrong.
Here you can see  it is perfectly square. :-)

Thanks for dropping by!
 Be sure to come back soon as I have a few more things to share. I have made  few lo's that I have not been able to share yet.
