The new Beautiful You Collection from Manor House Creations is absolutely beautiful and stole my heart as soon as I saw it! I thought the gorgeous mix of soft pinks and yellows would be perfect for this photo of Alex and our new puppy Tyson. I’ve used the ‘In My Thoughts’ paper which has a soft pink reverse side which I used to layer under my photo:
Products used: Papers – Beautiful You ‘In My Thoughts’. Flowers – Oh So Pretty Pink Mix, Country Roses Lemon, Layout Pack Natural (large yellow flower) and Light Green Leaves. Embellishments – Felt Doilies Country Estate, Wood Elements Flower Buttons and Heart Buttons, Cotton Tags and Chipboard Words Beautiful You (Love)
A little dab of Gesso on the Wood Elements helps them blend with the colour tones on the page:
The new Cotton Tags are a fabulous way to add texture to your page:
The layout actually uses two pieces of the In My Thoughts paper. One as the background and the other sheet has been cut up to add dimension and texture to the page. First I cut out the floral images I required which were placed on the top left hand side of the photo. Next I cut different size pieces of the reverse side of the paper to create the base of my photo. The first layer was then covered with Gesso and painted using Twinkling H2O’s. A larger piece of the paper was then used as the matt for my photo.
Happy creating :)
