Flourishes and Flowers Page Layout

Hello all of you Robin's Nesters!  Barbara here, with another page layout that I am really excited about.  I love these papers and their colors and how well they work together.


I used the Glitter Vanilla Wedding paper as my base.  Then I fussy cut the three large flourishes from the Linen Fleur Blue cardstock and layered it over the same flourishes on the vanilla paper.  The blue flourish in the lower right corner was layered after using a craft knife to cut a slit around the decorative design in the vanilla paper to allow it to fully show.  I did not want to cover that up with the blue flourish.


I used several Spellbinders dies to cut various flourish shapes, frames, and flowers.  I used a layered die to cut the three layers used in the focal picture, including the picture of the pretty lady.  I added Halloween dew drops at various end points on the frame for added bling and dimension.  Yes, I did say Halloween, but don't let the name fool you.  These colors are gorgeous, and how wonderfully well they work with so many of the Robin's Nest papers.  The colors are rich, just like the paper.  They are fabulous!


I even placed a few dew drops on a couple of the blue flourishes, following the print pattern in the paper. 



I used one of the frames in the die set to make a small journaling block with a white frame insert for writing.  




Another die was used to make the pretty borders along the top and bottom edge.  I used the opposite side of the blue flourish paper and added dew drops on each design element.


Pretty lady needed some flowers, and this paper made the most beautiful flowers (in my humble opinion).  I used more dies to cut out the flower shaped pieces, pinch, curled, and bent the petals to make them look more realistic.  


The green flourishes were used to imitate leaves, and this was the print on the opposite side of the copper butterflies double-sided paper.  How beautiful is that?  I just love these papers from The Robin's Nest, and I know you will too.
I will be back next month, on 3 September, with another project for you.  In the meantime, please visit The Robin's Nest to see all of their beautiful papers and embellishments.  And don't forget about their monthly page map challenge in which you can submit your very own layout for a chance to win $25 to spend in their online store.
