Cousins and Friends - GDT for Scrap Africa Washi and Twine Challenge!


I am so excited to be guest designing for Scrap Africa for the Washi Tape and Twine challenge today!!

For this layout I used some gorgeous Paper Temptress Silver Lustre papers and gorgeous lace and flowers from Tresors de Luxe. The base of my layout is the gorgeous 12x12 Laser Silver Lustre paper. This paper is amazing for taking distress inks...my frame and butterfly were inked up but the columns pattern is nearly 3D with the effect it has and the silver columns seem to float above the inked surfaces, amazing!!  I then layered many many strips of tape as a background, swirling some white button twine around the background for movement...I added my inked frame behind my photo lifted up on foam tape.


You can see the Rustic Shabby Chic Flower Embellishment (FL-028) and Embroidered Heart Lace Trim (LA-080) above in the close up. These come from Tresors de Luxe. There is an amazing selection of flowers and trims there, have a look!!


I finished off the layout with some Martha Stewart Monarch Punch Butterflies and a bit of  harlequin patterned background stamping.

I used the gorgeous sketch and monochromatic color theme from Scrap Around the World for this layout.
