Chantal's - Land of Make-Believe layout

Hello Bloggers, Chantal has created a "Land of Make-Believe" layout,
Chantal explains her layout,

"This month I have a layout to share with you all, "The Land of Make-Believe"...

I went for a dreamy, magical and whimsical look for this layout which plays on the theme of a child's imagination.  Part of the journalling reads, "...and if only for a few moments, you donned a fairy costume and you entered the land of Make-Believe".  

This was a really exciting layout to create!  I've also used the new "Dreaming in the Meadows" paper collection, along with "Flourish" Washi Tape, "Frames 3" Transparency and Mini Rosebuds - all from Meg's Garden.

These exquisite gates have been painted black, highlighted with silver glitter (this is a fairy-infused layout after all!) and then wound the stems of around the gates (this is really easy to do - the gate is nice and sturdy and can be manoeuvred around easily without any damage at all), I've adhered a contrasting paper underneath the gates and fussy-cut a strip of flowers and adhered them to the bottom of each gate.

Inside the middle of each gate, I've adhered a small heart - they both have been covered with vintage book paper and topped with a metal heart charm.  I've also "sprinkled" three more chipboard hearts to the left of my page, like confetti, plus a larger heart next to one of the top right photographs.

The tree has been painted white, and topped with glitter, pearl pen drops and rosebuds (with their stems cut off and cut in half).  This is a lovely sparse tree which has been positioned behind the large silhouetted photo, between the iron gates.

That's it for today !  Cheers Chantal :)
