There are three responses to a piece of design — yes, no, and WOW! WOW is the one to aim for.

DESIGNER INSPIRATION-Nerrida and Jeni

Two of our designers, Nerrida, and Jeni, are here today to share with us their wonderful girly layouts.

Nerrida has created a soft, pretty pastel layout of her daughter. She has combined The Scrapcake ‘My private happiness’ paper collection with lots of beautiful MHC flowers. She has misted the background of her layout, which adds to the soft, feminine feel.

Jeni has chosen to use bold, strong colours for her layout of her daughter, but she has still managed to maintain the feminine feel.

 

 

Here Jeni shares some clever tips, ‘Some of my favourite flowers from the Winter collection are the Petite Roses.  These sweet little flowers just seem to compliment any page. They were a perfect fit with the Pink Paislee papers. I love to create depth with my flowers and always touch them up with inks, chalks or paints. First I applied a little chalk to the centres using a q-tip, then added a little paint to highlight the middle and outer edges of the petals. I finished them off with a touch of sparkle using burgandy Ranger stickles’.
