Let’s get Flirty Fleur
The Hey Little Magpie shop has recently started stocking Prima. When Flirty Fleur, one of their collections reached the ‘shelves’, I knew it was a collection right down my street.
With a monochromatic combination of black and white, but with teal tones to add contrast, what’s not to love?
Plus for a bit of bling, Prima have foiled some of the papers and ephemera with an almost holographic effect.
I assumed that I would only be wanting to scrap black and white photos, but a muted colour photo worked best on my first layout!
‘Love This’ has a textured background, created using Vicki Boutin art crayons and a gesso base. It was the first time that I had used her crayons, and I’m just a bit addicted to them now! I used them both wet and dry in conjunction with a stencil.
Layering around the image was easy as all elements co-ordinate so well.
I wouldn’t usually choose Prima flowers. However, I spied two fabulous butterflies in the Flirty Fleur Take Flight Mulberry pack, so they sold it to me!
After placing most of the elements onto the textural background, I felt that the layout needed some grounding. I decided to back mounted the entire layout with the Little notes paper.
A border punch edge detail and some cross stitching completed the layout.
‘Blessed Happiness’ also has a textured background, but this time I painted the inner detail of the lattice stencil using the Vicki Boutin Iridescent Glaze.
I created the left hand panel using a border of Birds of a Feather and Something Floral Flirty Fleur papers.
The Take Flight Mulberry pack of flowers also has an oversized frame in it, so to give cohesion to the layout, I cut it into three pieces and placed them randomly over the layout base.
Similarly to my first layout, I added ephemera and stitching, clustering around the frame sections.
This layout was mounted onto the Pretty Birds grid like paper, as I felt it needed a sharp edge.
Both layouts were finished with the Flirty Fleur Words and Quotes stickers and Flirty Fleur Say it in Crystals, perfect to add an extra bit of bling!
