Hello,I am here to share with you a LO I did using the Beautiful Fika Collection. I use a lot of the colors that are in this Collection in my Garden, but I also use Terra Cotta & this year I made a changes,I planted the Tree Fort area, Vintage Shabby Chic,using more pastel colors, so that I will be able to use my own Garden Photo’s & have a wider color range for Scrapbooking. I have just finished planting & now I get to watch my Babies GROW!!!!



Out of this Collection I used, Hemma hos mig, Vaffin m bjornbarssylt, Bjornabarskator, Bjornabarskator BS, Maripanbakelse & Pratstund BS. The chipboard is from Scrap Fx. Here are some closeups of detail….


I first distressed all the edges of the layers, then inked the edges with Tattered Angels Dewberry,using a paint Brush. When that dried I glued the layers together,then did some stitching. I used Shimmerz Paints Texturez (Artie Choked) on the Fern Frond.


On the wordlet I used Shimmerz TextureZ (Gritty Graphite) & when that dried I applied some Razzleberry,& Black Orchid LuminArte.


This photo shows some of my layers. I cut into the top left hand corner,then distressed,inked the edges, the rolled the paper & secured the roll with eyelets & thread.


The plants I used in this area of my garden are Castor Beans, Angelica Gigis, & Tiger Eyed Sumac. I applied some black orchid LuminArte on to the blooms,so that they would be the same color as the blooms in the photo.


Thank you so much for taking the time to look……Rachelle
