We are featuring Graphic 45 and all their wonderful papers at Flying Unicorn this week. I love their papers with their rich colors!! Here's a layout I did for the feature using the new G45 Tropical Travelogue collection.
Here I am - "Enjoy the Moments that Make You Smile" and yes I was enjoying myself!! I went with a vintage style on this layout employing a sepia toned photo with an oval fade frame applied to give it that old look. I used lots of layers that I distressed and inked with Distress Gathered Twigs and Vintage Photo. The title is a Dusty Attic piece that I have painted with gold Smooch paint, it really is gold although it looks orange in this photo. The 2 bird images are from the Tropical Travelogue Botanica paper, I just love them!! I think the net and shells adds the perfect touch to this tropical layout, they were included in the January KOM!! I really love the unusual things that Alda always adds to the kits!
The largest flower is handmade using the Alterationgs Tattered Floral die, The other flowers ar some older Prima flowers from my stash. The two black swirls are printed on a transparency, then I cut them out and added to my layout. The butterfly came from LisaG, I simply added some black diamond Stickles.
