BasicGrey Indian Summer

When i received these papers i had been working on a few things using some photos of myself when i was a little girl and just couldn't help myself but to use this photo with this wonderful new range. The layout itself is so simple to achieve.

steps
1 start off by cutting a strip of patterned paper and glue this into place. Using a compass cut a circle and glue down overlapping the other paper.

2 i used a tim holtz mask to overlap the bottom of the circle then glued my photo into place

3 I had so much fun making the picket fence out of small lollipop sticks which i then painted the same colour of what was in the patterned paper

4 cutting flourishes from the patterned papers is the perfect way to give your layouts the perfect matching embellishments and can make your layouts so unique i finished it off by adding some BasicGrey bling, stamped butterfly's and a few prima flowers
