Happiness by Heather


'Layout by By Heather J.  “Happiness”
My title ‘Happiness’ expresses how I feel when surrounded by nature, flowers and my garden. From a very early age I discovered that through solitude, information was received and truths spoken. The magic I feel when working in my garden is so real .  The ‘Gifts of growth’,  soothe my soul.
For this layout I decided to use the beautiful red/pink charm of  Le Belle Jardin collection P6297.  I wanted to showcase the papers to demonstrate how Meg’s papers can also be used to create a layout without lots of fussy cutting . The birdcage and  1 flower, are the only fussy cutting on this page, with the remaining paper being cut into strips and edged with borderpunches.

 I grow both red and pink flowers and this collection reminded me of my passion for nature . I used a combination of this beautiful collection with a strip of The Antionette Collection Scroll Rose Delight 3381. The paper doilies look so delicate and soft against the strong colors of the paper along with the contrast of the white cardstock .
I created some funky flowers with the Tim Holtz die cuts and added some Kaiser black sparklets and blossoms .. I just adore the velvet flowers from Meg’s  they add such richness and texture to a page. I chopped the flourish into pieces/ inked in black  and arranged around my photo'
