It’s Gabrielle here with you today!  Spring is in the air so I thought I’d have a little fun doing a romantic layout this time!  It’s funny how I sometimes go through stages in my scrapping.  A while back I was all about circles.  There was a time when almost every layout in my gallery had circle designs in them.  In the past few months I’ve found myself haveing fun with hearts!  And what’s more romantic than a heart design right?

I love this beach wedding photo, sometimes just capturing an indirect shot like the feet of a bride and groom can be so much more intriguing than a straight on photo.  I love the soft blues and fawn colors in this photo so I decided to play up these colors in the layout.  I used papers from 3 different collections: Vintage Spring Basics (the blue stripe),  Ska vie ta en Fika? (the Coffee color dot) and Walking In the Forest (the leafy paper).

I added lots of intricately cut chipboard from Dusty Attic and finished it with some white paint and brown chalk ink and then gave them a coat of crackle medium.

I created a little birds nest trinket that I made out of 3 turquoise beads and some 26 gauge wire.  I shared a link for the tutorial at my blog Such a Pretty Mess if anyone wants to learn how to make it.

Supplies: Patterned Paper – Vintage Spring Basics (7th of March, 6th of May-butterflies), Ska vie ta en Fika (Sockerkaka), Walking in the Forest (Birdsong-bs).  Chipboard – Dusty Attic Designs (Sweet Pea Frame Set, Wrought Iron Fence, Small Scroll#2, Grass Clusters #2, Mini Script ABC set). Blooms – Recollections, Prima, Dusty Attic (leaves).  Extras: Paper lace doilee – Bo Bunny.  Trinket – Prima.  Lace and pearl trim – no name off the roll.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! xo
