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.
MHC products used: Winters Song-Embers, Solitude-white, Idyylic-oatmeal, Imagine-cocoa, Imagine, oatmeal, Poetry-bronze, Poetry-sage, Whimsy-baby pink, leaves.
