More beautiful Scrapware to share.

I have had so much fun playing with my Scrapware over the past few months, and am really loving sharing my creations. Today I want to share "Happy Coconuts", a layout of my boys and their cousins playing with the coconuts on Fraser Island.

Fraser Island is such a beautiful, natural wonderland, so I wanted to create a natural feel for this layout. I have used distress stickles over the leaves and flourish to add some texture.

Scrapware used in this layout is CH131 Shelley Flourish, and CH301 Skeleton Leaves. I LOVE how the leaves stand out against the background.

I also have a mini-canvas to share. A little while ago, my sister-in-law gave me a rare photo of her grandmother (turns out there are not many photos of her, such a shame, as she was truly adored by her grandchildren), and asked me to do something with it. I thought that a mini-canvas would be something that she could have on display, rather than a layout tucked away in an album.

This frame is so beautiful for a vintage photo, as are the flourishes. I have used a combination of ink, embossing powder and vintage glass for the chipboard elements.

For this piece, I have used CH387 Olivia Frame small, CH310 Flourish Kim small, CH207 Baroque Trim Mini, and AZ10 Mini Antique Alphas.
