This layout is a little different for me, look no flowers, but I have
wanted to scrap these photos,for a while. I love the look on number 2 sons face after he fell in, he was warned, only to end up soaking wet with a drowned MP3 player, which is what he is most upset about, that and his pride! At the moment I am experimenting with mulberry paper, an old product that has been discarded too early, i think. Now with a lot of new products like, gel medium and spellbinder dies, you can do so much with it. It is softer that cardstock, so makes wonderful flowers. Just have go, you will be surprised, and if the colour is awful, we now have a huge range of glimmer mists, that we didnt have the first time mulberry paper made its appearance. The glimmer mist, can give the mulberry paper, almost a translucent look, especially the lighter colours like lemon.
In this layout i have used micro beads too, as you all know I love them. Here I have sprinkled them in between the mulberry paper waves.
The gorgeous chip shape is from imaginarium, I have embossed it white, I love the plastic shiny look of embossing powder, far superior to just dimensional magic. hope you all go experiment with mulberry paper and bring it back in fashion.
