So Magical...a Layout by Patricia Basson.

Hello to all of you...

It is once again my pleasure to share with you all a project created with delightful findings from the Zeus and Zoe Etsy shop. I would love to share with you a soft and elegant looking page done with some of the items from my DT stash! My starting point was the purple vintage card in the background, without giving my age away...who can still remember those embossed cards from our youth? I opened it up to create a background for my photo. I cut the bottom of the the left side cup and placed it at the bottom left corner as a holder for my Manor House Creation flowers.





I saw a most amazing project on Pinterest with rolled book pages and that inspired me to create this rolled effect.





This is a page that one will have to take and twist and turn to get the full effect of the embellishment...



I did a bit of stencilling with some Mica from Lindy's Stampgang in Oak Leaf Olive mixed with Acrylic Gloss and rubbed a little on my flowers as well. Added a vintage button and stick pin from the Esy Shop. I also used the packaging from Webster to die cut and as strips on the page.



The purple flower form Webster Pages Floral Bouquet went well with the ribbon trim. Some more buttons and stick pins used here as well...

Thank you for reading my post today...Please visit Marivic's Etsy Shop for any of the items that I have used on this page...Till next time
Patricia
