A girl thing

This layout for Down Under inspirations, was inspired by Heather Jacob, who sent in a layout for Australian Scrapbook Ideas designer gallery. I was immediately taken by her layout as it used plain black cardstock for the background, which seems a bit too harsh. But I think it worked so well I had to try it too. The black really allows the white doily dies to show up. I had to spritz it too, I mixed white paint with isochol, and put it in a spritz bottle, to create the splots of white, which soften the black. The black roses are made by Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms, which I have sprayed with adhesive and dipped in black glitter. Along with my usual flowers and of course my new fav die foliage 2 ...enjoy
