'Sunrays' for Papirdesign DT and a new theme and hop at Paper Issues.

Hi friends!! Today I have a post up at the Papirdesign blog and I thought I would share my layout here at the same time.

I did a lot of stitching and masking on this. I used a mask with a script design to customize my background and machine stitched my papers together.

For a fun photo mat I used a deep edge border punch along two sides of the piece of paper and to finish off the look I added a swirly piece of chipboard by Imaginarium Designs. My other chipboard piece  in the shape of a lamp-post is by Fabscraps.

I love to layer all kinds of papers and embellishments and working with my Papirdesign products is so much fun. I love to fussy cut from the sheets of vintage images and the layered roses here are examples of that. PD also has all shades of paper roses and half pearls and these add such a feminine touch to any layout. Lucky me!

Here you can see I used part of a 'golden' coloured pearl swirl. As the PD swirls are so large and cleverly shaped they are great for cutting into and using on different projects.

To finish off the overall look of my lo I added two tags in a light pink shade.
I cut them freehand from a themed paper  with the text 'confirmation' which did not suit my page at all.
I used my fingertips and some gesso to cover the words but not the pink colour.
I also stiched around the edges for a customized look.
I hope you enjoyed my Papirdesign page!
