Today I am delighted to be bringing you a scrapbook layout using the unusual and attractive Hanami Garden, Oriental themed collection.
First I took the stunningly beautiful Tsuki Paper and the Parasol Die Cut sheet and I traced the outline of the bottom printed element using a craft knife. I then interlinked them like this, tucking the parasol paper beneath the raised cut out section of the Tsuki paper.
I then took the photograph and mounted it on a piece of black paper from the 6.5″ paper pad and mounted it on foam pads. I then added the red and cream magnolia die cut from the collectables pack and some large Flame Red blooms and mini Honey paper blooms with a twisted swirl of Cherry Red Hemp cord.
I then added lots of Silver Rhinestones to the centre of the printed magnolias on the Tsuki Paper and the die cuts and randomly placed others. I then took one of my favourite Kaisercolour Gel Pens and traced the edges and accents of the magnolias to make them all pop even more.
I finished it off with another die cut sentiment from the collectables pack and a sub title using alphas similar to these Tiny Alpha Stickers .
It just goes to show how this very different, yet somehow versatile, collection is. I do hope you like what you see and will be tempted to have a try yourself.
