"10 Days Old" by JJ Sobey

Hello everyone, just wanted to share this layout with you. I used stencils and mists to give the handmade background paper   a little extra colour.   I also misted the lace (which started out off-white), in both pink and silver mists.  The ivory 'cobweb' trim is its original colour - it was already perfect for the page.

 I know I say this every time, but I love, love, love the flowers from Green Tara - lots of dimension and texture without overwhelming the page. (Ivory Gardenia (FDV054Iv5), White Gardenia (FDV054Wh5), Aubergine/White Apple Blossoms (FDV044Au), White Apple Blossoms (FDV044Wh5) )

 The small roses come on a wire stem, which I normally trim down.  This time I wrapped a few around a paintbrush handle to make them look like part of the greenery.
I combined a couple of floral sprays with one of the beaded sprays for a little added shimmer."
