Hello everyone and I would like to wish you a very warm welcome to the Meg's Garden Blog.
Today I would like to show you a Keepsake Box I have made for my Mum for Mother's Day crated out of the ' Forgotten Meadows' collection.
I love the flowers on these papers so much. They are beautiful, pinks, mauve, creams and many more colours too.
After placing the patterned paper on the top I decided to place some flowers over the top and let the flowers on the patterned paper flow out from behind them. The flowers I chose to use are the Velvet Pansy and leaves, small paper white and cream roses, paper Azaleas and a white Heirloom flower. The picture of the lady is from the Vintage Beauties Strips and after I have cut out the two different sizes I have mounted them on some of the patterned paper. Also on the top I placed a bronze flower.
I inked the edge of the patterned paper with Distress Ink Gathered Twigs. The stems for my flowers I twisted in glued them coming from behind the flowers.
I used a pink Fusion to colour the edge of the box lid and the placed some off white lace around it. I then fussy cut the butterflies from the patterned papers.
I hope you have enjoyed my post and while at Meg's Garden I hope you have the time to look at what some of the other ladies have been up to and that we can inspire you a little.
Until my next post good health and happy crafting to you.
