Lilac Whispers Scrapbook Layout

Good morning all

Today it absolute pleasure to bring you this layout using the, oh so pretty, Lilac Whispers collection. Despite its name of Lilac Whispers, all those that have seen it have agreed it is a subtle collection of mint and aquas with a hint of Lilac, so if you don’t like Lilac (as I don’t) please don’t let its name deter you from buying it! Lol

imageTo make this layout, first I took a sheet of Elephant Ears grey Kaisercard for the background and gutted the reverse to save for later. I then took the sheet of Illusion paper from the pack and cut it in half, after trimming one inch from two sides. I then reversed one side and joined it to the front side and adhered it to the card. I used a 12″ sticker from the sticker sheet to cover the join.

imageI then took a retired butterfly stamp set, (very similar to this one here) and added some random stamping on the background.

I then took pieces of the Mauve paper and the reverse side of the Jade paper and added the first layer using Mounting Foam tape. I also added a further layer using the front side of the Jade paper.

I then mounted the photograph on to the gutted piece of Elephant Ears Kaisercard and mounted that using the mounting tape too.

I then took a large section of the floral cluster from the sticker sheet and mounted it on foam pads for extra dimension. I also tucked several leaves for the collectables pack under the floral cluster and also a small piece of punched trim from the Illusion paper beneath the photo together with another collectable from the pack.

imageI then used a collectable clock face (cut in two) to poke out from behind the photo layers and I addd three butterflies and the title from the collectables pack.

imageFinally I added the mounted expression and a flourish of Rhinestones and some individual rhinestones to give the flowers a little sparkle.

imageThis super pretty collection is a must to add to any stash..I do hope you like what you see.
