Hello 49 friends !
I am back once more to greet you with a project completed over the last week. Unfortunately I have hurt my back gardening and sitting is not so sweet to do at present, so this project took me some time to complete.
I have been so lucky to use the Sweet Reflection collection. Omgeeeeeee ! Really lost for words on this stunningly beautiful collection full of elegance and prettiness.
This is my project
I pondered for quite some time about which photo I would use for this project and then it came to me. It isn’t a great photo but for me it really is about the memories that each picture provokes for me. I remember taking my 3 children to the Centennial Lakes for a morning out on our bikes and this I thought was one of the cutest photos from that day. My third who has a very adventurous soul, just took off on her little bike leaving us all behind. That is where I usually was with her, right behind………….
So about the project. I used a few pieces and I mean a few. Some of the patterned papers I used two of so that I could remove some of the gorgeous foliage to fussy cut. I know that there is a lot of you that really don’t like to fussy cut so much, but rest assured I also used a sheet of the Sweet Reflections laser cuts also to minimise the amount of fussy cutting I did. It really is the perfect solution for those of you who really detest doing this. These laser cuts are cut perfectly to the image and there is no shadowing around each.
Sweet Reflections Easy Cuts
To start I cut out the branch frame from the patterned paper crossroads leaving all of the foliage. I then attached this to framework made from Pause and the b side of Awakening. Did a little distressing and then followed on by cutting more images from another piece of Awakening,
I also cuts foliage and flowers from the bottom right square of the beautiful Easy Cuts paper. Once I had all my paper pieces cut I went on and did some matting of my photo using leftover pieces and building it up to sit in the left corner of the branch. I adhered this and then tied a very elegant Dusty Attic frame to the photo to highlight my photo. I also added in a few other pieces of frame chipboards to help embellish the page and break up the floral and foliage images. Finishing off my project I added in a little muslin and some art stones to compliment my page and to keep it shabby and a little chic. I have some close-ups for you below.
Well that is all from me today. Join us again for another piece of beautiful inspiration from our Design Team.
Happy Crafting …..hugs xxx
