Happy Flower weekend!

Amanda here.... with some sketches and layouts to inspire you for the weekend.

Over at RED EARTH, all weekend there is 20% off all flowers, so you can save money and then get creative with some projects like these:

Sketch 1:
 And my layout....

White cardstock, with some misting - I used paper doilies as masks behind the photos (subtle!).
Then a stitched circle.
Then it was all about the flowers and leaves, layered around the circle. Flowers I used: Green tara roses and leaves, Prima polka dots, White Ada, Petaloo.
I used the Authentique text words to create the long (and slightly corny) title.
Hope you love it, I think it's kinda sweet, just like my friend Moira....

Sketch 2

Here's my layout:

Papers: Echo Park, these Glitz papers, this authentique paper
Ribbons and my usual clusters of bits!
The flowers weren't quite the right colour, so I painted them with silver ink and paint to make them match the colours of the layout. Flowers I used: Green Tara roses, Prima
I created this layout for the challenge over at 123 - so 1=word JOY (a word that describes my friend Michaela so well!); 2= colour SILVER; 3= paint splatters. Give it a go this weekend!

So have fun this weekend, hope you find some beautiful flowers to create with!

Thanks for looking!
