PROM DRESS SHOPPING



 
Hi scrappy friends, here is a layout I have just finished. I used  a T.C.R #145 colour scheme for my inspiration and am entering this into a challenge over at Scrap For Help. See links below.

For this one I used some pretty papers from Kaisercraft called the Duchess Collection which I have had in my stash for ages.
The colours were perfect for this page.

So this is how I did it.
I chose all my papers and made lots of flowers in turquoise, pink and yellow.
I cut down a pretty paper to 10x10 inches and matted it onto a piece of cream cardstock cut down to 10.5 x 10.5 inches, which I matted onto my 12x12 pretty paper. I inked all the edges.
I adhered my doily then my two matted photos.
I then used some cardboard that I painted with some white paint and two other pieces of co-ordinating cardstock and glued these in layers in the back of my photos.
I then attached my silver hessian/burlap in the back using a heat gun. I thought silver would go with the sparkles on the dress.
This done I started decorating with flowers and leaves, butterflies and fibres. The green leaves and flowers I decorated with silver glitter glue.
I used more of the silver burlap/hessian in between the flowers.
I added the title and there you have it a pretty layout incorporating pink, turquoise, a little green and a little yellow. Hope you like it.
