At last I can share this layout with you all, I did this for Down Under Direct inspiration blog, I started out with an idea, and half way through I hated the layout it just wasn't working for me, I had made the flowers and all embellishments, but the colours just weren't coming together, until I added the green leaves, hand made vines, the colour green was just what it needed, to balance the burgundy, now I love the layout, it is actually one of my favourite. I have used gesso to soften the flowers, and spritzed white paint mixed with isochol over the back ground to give a patterned look to the plain cardstock. I have also used another fav product muslin, just buy some gauze bandage swatches they are perfect for using as they are already cut into squares and store easily to use when ever you want a softer shabby look


  1. Gorgeous Sue, your flowers are beautiful, as is the whole layout. I'm off to look up what icochol is...
