Adriana is Wishing & Dreaming

Adriana is wishing for a trip to Paris

Adriana explains her 'LAYOUT – Paris Forget Me Not

'The second collection from “The Forget Me Not” papers are so
lovely they compliment the first collection beautifully.
These papers are great for fuzzy cutting.
I created a layout of one of my favourite cities in the
world, PARIS. Everyone who know me, knows that
I would love to visit this wonderful and magical city.
One day my wish will come true but
until then I can only DREAM about this place.

Materials used from Meg’s Garden
All from the Forget Me Not collection 2
P6308 Forget Me Not & violets, P6312 Forget Me Not Alphabet
P6309  More shades of Blue Forget Me Not
German scrap – white small edges
P6306 Delicate Blue , P6305 Forget Me Not Fabric

Other Materials are:

Inks, glitter, tim holtz tag, ribbon, forget me not flowers.'

and she then explains her 'DOOR HANGER - Dream

'This door hanger decorates my bedroom door now,
Using the small alphabets from the Alphabet papers
I created the word DREAM.
Just perfect, don’t you think?

Materials used from Meg’s Garden
P6306 Delicate Blue Forget Me Not, P6312A Forget Me Not little Alphabet
P6304 Butterflies & Blue Forget
Elements paper of Forget me not,
String of pearls, assorted Velvet flowers and leaves,

I love them both - with hints like this, Adriana should get to Paris soon.
The embellishing on both projects is so very beautiful.  The use of the Alphabet papers is extremely effective & a great lesson in creativity. The velvet flowers are the icing on the cake

Well done Adriana & congrats on your acceptance to the Kaiser DT.

Bye for now
