The White Rose by Liz Hocking

Hello Bloggers, so glad you could join me today for my very first project for Meg's Garden.  I received Meg's new collection 'The English Rose Garden',  Such gorgeous 12x12 papers along with matching 'Cut and Create' sheets.
I selected this photo of my sister on her wedding day,  way back in 1970.  Sadly, she has passed away,  but I am making a vintage/heritage album for my grandchildren, so they will be aware of all the family members.   This collection is so suited for this type of album. I hope you agree. 

Firstly,  from the collection, I selected 'Leave & Foliage' and 'Roses & Lace' for the background. I then went about some fussy cutting from the 'Cut & Create' sheet, which worked well for my mini frames as you can see.

I applied some Dimensional Magic, which happened to crack so I choose to leave it as it added to the vintage feel of the layout.  You will also notice that I cut up Meg's Garden Doily and made a border along the bottom of Meg's Lace. 
I also cut out the little basket with flowers and coloured with Gelatos.

Another frame with a rose used  from 'cut and create' along with a brass butterfly and a little 'silver' fairy which I coloured with my Copics to give it a 'brass effect'.

Well I hope that you have enjoyed this visit and for more inspiration, I hope that you keep returning to see what the other girls on the Design Team have created.  To visit Meg's Garden shop just click HERE  Until next time......Happy creating....Liz
