Sandrine scraps her little girl

Hi Bloggers

Here is another little girl with a completely different approach to the layout - how fascinating to see the differences in their styles.

Sandrine explains her page:  'I have another project completed for Meg's Garden using the stunning Spring Paisley Collection! With loads of products from the shop too! I have lots of closies for you today, this layout's style is grungy, with lots of layers. I do have to admit I love white and any pastel colour schemes so when I saw this gorgeous Spring Paislee Collection I fell in love!



Closie of the gorgeous paislee and leaves and Dusty Attic Blooms:




 Take a look at this test tube filled with green beads!



Some gorgeous charms covered in gesso, some lace, some German Scrap and Tim Holtz mini paper clips:


 Look at all the different textures, so grungy!



I would like to share some tips on how I used Meg's Garden gorgeous products.
- GERMAN SCRAP BORDERS WHITE: in my layout I tore and inked bits of scrap and then glued them down with foam tape for added dimension
- DUSTY ATTIC GRASSY KNOLL FLOWERS: I added a thin layer of gesso to grunge them up
FILIGREE AND TIM HOLTZ MINI PAPER CLIPS: can also be gessoed for grunginess use strong clear drying glue to adher to your page.
- LACE: use to add great texture to your design, adhere with clear quick drying glue
- PATTERNED PAPER: look at your pattern and cut out your favourite designs, in this instance the paisley and leaves/branches were cut out of Green Eau de Lavande and edges inked.
- TINY TEST TUBE: that is my favourite element! I filled it with green glass beads, to keep them in I added some dimensional magic at the top! I have more of those, I will share some more idea on how to use this very versatile product in my next Meg's Garden Post.

Well I hope you enjoyed my layout and tips. I had great fun creating it!
