|bamboo + almond trees|
Once again Kraft Plus has taken me out of my comfort zone (though I must admit I do like playing with my watercolours). The August challenge is to use trees somehow on your page. As I don't have a photo linked with this particular memory I decided to challenge myself not to use a photo on this page. In hindsight I should have added white paint to my texture paste, but otherwise I'm pretty happy with the finished page. Bring on spring!

This layout was a labour of love. First I cut the stencil using my Silhouette Cameo out of very heavy cardstock. Then I used that to stencil my background using texture paste coloured with a little pink/peach paint. I then created the glassine pocket for my stencilling. The layout was built around the mint coloured paper and that fabric flower. It look longer to make than I'd hoped but I just love the texture of that background. And don't forget, laugh often, live well and love much :)
