Wonderful You – 5TH & MONACO – PINK PAISLEE – WENDY MEFFAN
Hey Magpies, it’s Wendy here sharing my first LO for June using this gorgeous Pink Paislee 5th and Monaco Collection. It’s full of pretty florals and vibrant colours perfect for almost any occasion .
I gutted the 12×12 sheet No 10 to create a border for my LO initially, I then used some water colours to make a mixed media background. As my Aunt was 92, I wanted to make her the main feature as she is totally amazing so chose a large 6×4 photo which I matted with a sheet from the 6×8 paper pad.
I then used the ‘Wonderful’ journal card from the ephemera pack to the side.
I loved the flowers in the ephemera pack and as my Aunt loves her garden they were perfect for making little clusters on the LO. I used the tabs from the ephemera pack and added them under the flowers and behind the picture. I cut the ephemera piece ‘today was incredible’ apart and used the ‘favourite’ part in the bottom cluster and the other half across the top to use as a journalling space.
I added the ‘happy’ heart and then outlined in a thin black liner around all the tags and also the edge of the LO to make it ‘pop’
I added some butterflies from the puffy stickers and a small heart. Then I added the title from older thickers I had in my stash. I used gold thickers for the 92 to coordinate with the gold on the ephemera flowers.
Finally I added some ink splatters in green again picking out the colour from the collection.
This LO for me sums up my Aunt and is very pretty and floral which is what I wanted to create for her.
If you’ve not seen this collection check it out in the shop!
I look forward to seeing your creations and will be back later in the month with another LO using this collection.
