Spring by Meredith Hilly

Hello everyone.
When creating your latest scrap project there will always be left over pieces of pages when its time to clean up. I find it very hard to throw these in the bin so I put them all in a tray knowing they will be handy for a future pages.
Well with such a wet winter the spring here was amazing for my flowers in the garden.
I knew I had paper from Megs garden that would complement pages with them.
So here is a mix up of a few of Megs papers.

The amount of bling I put on this page made it very difficult to get a nice photo. I used Kindy Glitz and Liquid Pearls to high light this lovely lady.

Tearing the edges of the matting around the photos gives another depth to the page.

When using left over paper to make a book it doesn't have to be the same size as the page before.

Adding fold out pages gets the best out of double sided pictures.

Cutting out and gluing part of a see through image , for example the butterfly , makes the image seen on following pages.

I am lucky enough to have a magnificent wisteria like the beautiful papers at Megs garden. They look great together.

On the back page I used a Slide Mailer from Megs Garden. This made a lovely ending for the book.

Thanks for having a look at my book.
