Simple Stories Simple Vintage Garden District - Beauty Everywhere

Hello, Karen C here again. Today I have another layout using the Simple Vintage Garden District Collection from Simple Stories. The collection is full of images of flowers and butterflies and so I decided to create a layout using some photos of my garden.

This layout is very simple and uses a sheet of the Never Stop Dreaming paper.  

Using some outline alphabet stamps from my stash, I stamped the quote "If you truly love nature you will find beauty everywhere" onto the layout using some black Memento Ink. This ink is water resistant so it allowed me to go back and roughly colour in the stamped letters using some pink watercolour paint.

Two photos were then stuck to the right hand side of the layout and I carefully cut round one of the butterflies printed on the background paper so I could tuck my photo underneath it.

On the left hand side of the layout I placed a piece of neutral ribbon and I again cut round some of the butterflies so I could 'thread' the ribbon beneath the images. Another small piece of ribbon was tied on for extra interest.

Five natural wooden buttons were added to the left hand side of the layout.

The layout was completed with the addition of a beautiful Tim Holtz Idea-ology Adornments Butterfly .

I thought this would be my last layout using this collection, but I'm really enjoying using it and hope to be back soon with one more layout.

Take Care
