Janice Says:

I have been lucky enough to work with some beautiful Manor House Creations Flowers combined with Twiddleybitz Chipboard for the month of August.

Look at these beautiful Manor House Creations Flowers, they are the perfect  adornment for my shabby chic page along with the beautiful  Twiddleybitz Chipboard pieces.

I love the multi colour tones and details of this gorgeous flower, I have added a few more beautiful  Manor House blooms and leaves, along with  some fussy cut pieces, gauze, ribbon,and buttons and they frame my lil girl beautifully.

This adorable headband was also created by Monika, she has cut up an old pair of her daughters leggings as the headband, tied the leggings in a knot at the back,  and adhered some MHC flowers to it, using a hot glue gun. What a great idea, innexpensive idea. These headbands would make a wonderful gift for someone special.

A step by step layout with Delaina

Hey Everyone… Delaina here with you today to share a step by step LO that I created using more beautiful Manor House Creations Flowers.

 

MHC Products used: Poetry- sage, Royalty- baroness mix, Apple Blossoms, Winters Song, Idyllic -burgundy and plum

I added some pretty papers from Pink Paislee to enhance these gorgeous flowers…

I used sharped point scissors to fussy cut the flowers

I will add a 9 1/2 x 9 1/2 paper and distress the edges using ink and a file….then roll the edges up just a little.

I adhered the papers, one on top of the other and with my sewing machine sewed around the inside paper a few times.

I then used a stencil and white paint with a sponge brush to apply randomly on the inside paper.

I used 3, 4″ doilies after cutting out the centers.

I layered the doilies and fussy cut flowers and a 4×6 photo.

I then add the Beautiful Manor House Flowers to each side of my photo.

My finished LO.

Something a little quirky

 We have something a little different, and alot adorable to share with you today, from the very talented Morag Cutts.

She created this cute parade float as part of a special ‘Homecoming’ parade at THE DIGICHICK blogspot.

A word from Morag, ‘I created a float with a large ‘cake’ base and topped it off with a bird cage.  The float is a vibrant mix of fuscia pink, tangerine and limes – perfect for an Indian summer!’

‘A quirky twirp’ by Morag Cutts

Products used: Whimsy-pink, Jubilee – ornate orange & princess pink, Grandma’s garden – handkerchief, Rose leaves – light green medium.

OTP Inspiration

Today, we have a truly beautiful creation from Morag to share with you.

She really has outdone herself here, as Im sure you will agree. This beautiful mixed media piece includes just the right amount of ink, paint and texture. The pretty blue, green and white are a perfect colour choice to highlight the MHC Winters song flowers at their best.

Morag has given the MHC leaves a light brush over with white paint to blend in with the rest of the design.

Notice the hint of aqua spray ink on the white flowers.

‘Home’ frame by Morag Cutts

MHC products used: Winters song – Sleepy hollow, Mittens, Snowbird, Mascarpone, leaves.
