Bonfire Night Layout

12” X 12”

Hi Everyone,
My project this week is a layout featuring one of my very favourite photographs of my daughter, Tayla.  What a nice way of creating a wonderful keep-sake using the intricately detailed dies of Cheery Lynn Designs!  The papers used are by Kaisercraft, in the series called “Chapter One”. 

 I used the Anastasia Border, Lace LightDeco Border, and Border Carnival to add length to the photograph mount – layering them one on top of the other, using different hues to contrast, and show off the detailed design work, within each die.

The Italian Flourish was used to embellish beneath the floral arrangement. The Olive Branches, along with the HollyFlourish, were used as fillers. I removed the obvious holly leaves from the die-cut, and cut the stem in several places, rearranging the die-cut to fit around the photograph.  My flowers consist of the pretty Judy’s Blooms, Miniature Rose, and Cuties 1

The Folding Fan was fun to create, I can see this on a beautiful oriental card – would look magical!  My fan has two die-cuts; one has been cut into strips along the fold lines and adhered with lace to the back of the main fan, adding some dimension.
A scatter of the ExoticButterfly Mini’s and matching Angel Wings to complete...

The challenge this week is “Beautiful Borders” - all the details can be found by clicking “here”. I'm looking forwards to seeing your entries!
Have a fantastic week...
