Just Be You + Tutorial


Okay, so it is not often I get to create something solely for a challenge or two, but coming back from hols and the day after, I ask my son what he would like to do thinking we could spend the day together... But... he missed his Lego!! Lol, I guess that is what a week with us will do to him. :)

So, I bee-lined straight for table after seeing the gorgeous mood boards from Maja Design and Dusty Attic, and set to work...

Plus a video tutorial is included too... 

For these two mood boards I used the colours from Maja, but also the colours and feeling from the top right hand corner of the Dusty Attic mood board with the drapes and flowers.

Using papers from Maja's Vintage Summer 6 x 6 range, perfect for a card this size.

From Dusty Attic I used:

Leaves (sorry can't find item on site so linked to floral section :) )

Used some punches from Tim Holtz for bird and foliage.

All flowers are from 49 and Market. Since stepping down from this gorgeous team I have missed playing with the flowers, so it was good fun to break them out again for this vintage/shabby card.

Lots of soft texture in between layers. 

Hope you've enjoyed, be sure to check out my video on YouTube...
