“Framed In Flowers” by Lisa Gregory

"Framed In Flowers" by Lisa Gregory

Hello my lovelies. I hope you are inspired by the beauty of one of the new 49 and Market mini collections, “Ethereal”. The collection features soft pinks, peach, soft grey blues, and a splash of lavender. And lets not forget the laser cuts. Wow…They simply blow me away how gorgeous they look paired with the flowers. I used 2 of the same paper for this layout, showing front and backside, because they are both so beautiful! I split the paper in half and curled back the top, and added eyelets to the bottom, and laced through some 5 ply Jute Cording.

This closeup features some of the laser cuts mingling with the flowers. They pair and blend so beautifully! I cut one of the flowers in half and tucked both halves on either side of the framed photo. Besides the leafy clusters, there are also single leaves. I crinkle them a bit for a more realistic look, then tucked them under the flowers.

Building layers is so easy and so much fun adding depth to your projects when you use the laser cuts and flowers together. The viney leaves in the “Ethereal” collection laser cuts look so real! They are beautiful! Tuck them here and there and EVERYWHERE!!! Can never have enough greens in your floral clusters. Or butterflies and dragonflies either!! This is just a close up showing the depth that can be achieved from layering. A little bit of mixed media rounds out the whole layout.
