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

A LITTLE BIT FORMAL WITH THE WINTER COLLECTION

Hi, its Alicia joining you today, with a layout to share with you, featuring the gorgeous ‘Winter Collection’ flowers for Manor House Creations.

We recently attended a wedding which was the perfect opportunity to get a rare photo of the Grandparents and Grand kids all dressed up. Formal layouts are such a wonderful opportunity to use flowers as they add a real touch of elegance, and careful colour selection can really help set the tone of the layout.

In my layout- “Family is a gift”, I used a large maroon flower from the Winter’s Song-Embers set from the 2012 Winter collection. I love the little silver tips on the stamen. This instantly set the mood for my layout.

I then teamed it with a range of pink, brown, green and oatmeal flowers to draw out the colours in the patterned papers to complete my page.  I stuck to mainly neutral and pale tones to create  my formal feel rather than bright bold colours.
