Teacups by Chantal


Chantal has a beautiful little girl called Heidi & she shows some pics of Heidi in this fabulous LO
using the new Spring Paisley Collection
'My layout is called "Teacups" and it's a girly one ;)...

I have used the delightful brand new line of patterned papers from Meg's Garden; "The Spring Paisley Collection".  The papers I've specifically used are Spring Pink Toile and Spring Green Toile.  I've fussy cut around Spring Pink Tolle to make a frame and I've trimmed Spring Green Tolle a little to show a little cardstock underneath which has had it's edges dry-brushed with brown acrylic paint.  I think these two papers work so well together.  

I love how Meg's Garden patterned papers come with an extra skinny sheet to work with.  Instead of using these for fussy cutting in this instance, I have actually layered three of them together.  The green strip has been cut in half and separated to give the illusion that it's bigger - so it pokes above and below the pink strip.

Here's another detailed shot, so you can see my paintwork, machine stitching and fussy cutting - all techniques that lend themselves so well to this beautiful range...'
What a fabulous LO Chantal - well done.  You have a perfect little model in Heidi.
I am loving the layers & how you combined the 2 papers - beautiful
Kind regards
