Treasures for May
by Jan Rankine

A Moment to Treasure

 Hi everyone - thanks for dropping by.
I have two layouts and a little candle to share with you today.

On this layout I've featured a yellow 6.5 Heirloom Flower and 
and my favourite Velvet Leaves complete my cluster.

 Some more Roses and a Velvet Leaf look gorgeous in this corner.

I love Bud n Bow Ribbon, it comes in several different colours. 
 This  Cream Lace adds just a little touch of delicacy.

Wishes Really Do Come True

I loved this 6.5 Aster Batik Vintage Flower so much I built the
 whole layout around it.  Swarovski Crystal Flowers are so
 beautiful, they add just the right amount of bling to any page.
  I applied just a little Gesso to Lime Roses to soften the colour. 
 I've combined  three different sized Petals to make one flower
 and   used some of Green Tara's Stamens to finish it off.  
Love these stamens.

This beautiful Pearl Flourish,  more Roses and of course
Velvet Leaves .


As soon as I saw this new Skeleton Mesh 
I just had to use it.
  I had this cute little candle in my cupboard
 and I thought it was just the thing to showcase
the mesh.

A white 4cm Heirlom Flower and a Swarovski
Crystal Flower, together with a little Rose was
just right.  Bud n Bow Ribbon to trim finished
it off perfectly.

 I love the fact that this candle is in glass.  It makes
it perfectly safe to embellish without the risk of fire.

Thanks so much for dropping by today.
