I started by gutting a 1 inch frame from the reverse of Gum Leaves. I then trimmed the Native Flock paper down to an 11 in square and adhered this to the Gum Leaves frame. Finally I added the piece of Gum Leaves that I had gutted from the middle of the frame. I then used black embroidery thread to stitch around the Native Flock Paper.
Once my stitching was complete, I started to build up my page by adding the four 3in squares from Southern Sky to a piece of red paper, from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, and placing this in the centre of my page. My photos were then added.
I added as many pieces, cut from Southern Sky, to my page as I could fit, choosing the ones that fitted best with my two photos. To complete this part of my layout I filled in any gaps with word phrases from the Sticker Book and Collectables Pack.
On either side of my central block I added flowers cut from Banksia Bouquet and the corrisponding page from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, using flowers and leaves from the Collectables Pack to fill in any gaps and to extend my clusters at the top and bottom of each spray.
Using the Southern Sky cut-a-parts was a lovely way to document two of my favourite family photos.
