UPLIFTING JOURNAL

Hello & Welcome to my blog, 
Hoping this finds you well

to dwell or meditate upon.

to add some sparkle

'Encourage yourself, Believe in yourself & Love yourself,
Never doubt who you are.'

A delicate piece of embroidered lace is trimmed with a satin ribbon.the flowers have a pinkier tone

PRETTY IN LAVENDER

Hello It's Annette here
 welcoming you to Megs Garden Blog
 Today I wish to share with you my 'Mirror Image Frames'
.....well they're nearly mirror image .... 
'Pretty in Lavender'
using the very pretty range of papers from 
titled

These papers are lovely in their delicate colours of violet, mauve & lavender
& I was happy to start playing as soon as my  DT goodie box arrived ..
Meg also added in some extra trimmings &
I hunted through my stash & gathered 'purple'  stuff ...
the silver frames were a Christmas present from 'secret santa'
which I rubbed them with inka gold to highlight the pattern
the Chipboard frames were silver embossed then also rubbed with inka gold on the edges
I added water to the inka gold to colour my skeleton leaves
 Using patterned paper as my background I adhered the chipboard & 
the silver matted image
the tassle is made from a bead fringe which would be quite a number of years old
as it was in my mum's sewing treasures ( it will come in handy one day)
then added a spray of flowers & a sprinkle of beads to complete

PRETTY in LAVENDER
I'm quite pleased with the finished result & it's only the images that are not mirrored.
Please take some time to stroll (scroll) through the garden
& be inspired by the Garden Ladies 

Happy Scrapping

Be You Be Unique ~ Lavande Range

Hello Mary here. I am still working on my Granddaughters Graduation album using the beautiful Lavande Range (its just so pretty )

Be you be Unique


I have been keeping my pages for the album  quite clean and simple as the papers themselves are so pretty.  For this layout I tore a piece out of the top PP with the gorgeous Lacey edging and used one of the 4" x 12" strips ( which comes with the 12 " papers ) to replace it. This adds contrast and interest . I also rolled the edges of the top paper a little to give definition and it has the soft music print  12" x 4" strip PP showing through.


I layered my photo on another piece of the 12 x 4 strip in the range and also a piece of Megs Paper Doily. In opposite corners I have added a Diamante Trim and from left over Pattern Paper I made a layered flower. The large Butterfly , feather and the Unique word are fussy cut from a cut and Create sheet. The cut and create sheets have so many beautiful images. 
I finished my layout by adding a strip of the delicate daisy edged organza ribbon and narrow mauve ribbon.


Thank you for calling by and I hope I have inspired you to visit Megs Shop and create with this beautiful range.
Happy Creating

Memories


Hello everyone! It's Cathy here today and I have another layout to share with you using this beautiful collection from Meg's Garden called Lavande. It is just so beautiful to create with. I have another snapshot of my cousin's twin boys. They are seven months now. I am just amazed at the special connection they have.

To create my layout, I used the 12 x12 Lavande 07 and 11 papers. I inked the edges with Distress ink to vcreat an aged look. Using dimension foam tape adds dimension to the layers. I also cut of some of the 4 x 12 strips to make a tag and anything extra to the layout.

I had some ephemera left over from some of the other collections. It helped to add a vintage feel to the layout and to creat a focal point to the photo.
I also added some flowers and chipboard to my layout. I altered them either with white gesso or using Prima oil pastels.

When I created my background, I had some texture. I used a stencil and modelling paste plus two prima sprays. These are very subtle and you can see them if you look closely!

Lavande album

Hello, everyone!

Veronika here to share another my work with Lavande 
from Meg's Garden. Please, do not forget that you can find this collection in digital and paper version.
This time I made a big album. Size is more than A4 with ten pages and a lot of places for photos.
I think the main colour of this collection is my favourite. And it looks very beautiful in every work.

Veronika
