Hello,today I am doing a extra post,to give Heather some well deserved me time. Heather & I both love to Scrapbook, and we also share, the love of gardening. So as I was working on this, I was thinking that Heather must be seeing the first signs of Spring, as I am seeing the first signs of fall.I have a huge yard,so I like to use large foliage plants. My garden colors are in all shades of green,purples oranges & yellow. I asked Heather what her garden colors were, & like me Heather has her greenery,but uses pinks,white & blues for her pops of color…..
I used the Walking in the Forrest Collection….
The Chipboard used is from Dusty Attic, here are some closeups of detail…..
I did some ripping,distressing & hand-stitching.I also did some stencil work using TCW confetti (6×6) & Viva modelling cream…..
I inked all the edges of the paper, with vintage photo, distress stain. I also used the stain on the fence,& chicken wire……
I painted the foliage with DA forrest paint,& once that dried, I applied TA lime twist & olive, I used chestnut liquid pearls for the berry’s.Most of the flowers are Petaloo,the orange roses are Prima.
Here are some more close ups….
The butterflies are from LittleScrapShop….
Thank you so much for taking the time to look…….Rachelle
