Frank Garcia Design Team * Tales Of You And Me * Layout

 Tales Of You And Me...Frank Garcia's lovely collection for Prima Marketing, is Romantic, sweet and oh soooo beautiful!! I also found it to be shabby chic and the perfect collection to do projects that will use my grandaughters photo's. I wanted to create a magical floral garden like layout. My granddaughters name is Charlotte Rose. I wanted roses. Tales Of You And Me features roses.

Because I didn't have any of the matching floral embellishments for Tales of You and Me yet, I had to improvise. Well, that is oh so easy when it comes to making flowers for me. Rolled roses and layers of petals die cut from the Tales Of You and Me papers worked out perfectly.  The larger leaves are Prima Dies - Forest Leaves 58409 and sprayed with Lime Wedge Color Blooms spray. Of course there are MANY Prima flowers that match these papers, but I wanted to stay with Franks line for this layout. 

I even used  Cartographer Flower- Navigator 574499 and sprayed them with Color Bloom - Sultry Shimmer Peony 573904 to match the rest of the layout. The color was perfect. Shimmery gold undertones make them rich looking.

I hand cut the rolled roses using a deco edge scissors so that the roses would have a little bit of dimensional texture. I always save scraps larger than 2x2 because they are great for flowers like these. They are so easy to create and don't take that much time to put together. Cut, roll and glue...done...

I die cut some butterflies from a Sizzix die, and layered 2 of them together, flufffed the wings and adhered 2 of them to the layout.

 This is just another view and closeup of the flowers that I created from the leftover paper, and gave it a very light spray of Color Blooms spray in Peony. 

I created a few layers and popped them off of the page for dimension. I die cut  Prima Dies - Parisian Lace 584047 and tucked a couple here and there. I even found a Fiskars edge die that matched the scallop on the doily die. I used strips for the inner edge of the layout.

Thank you for joining me today to see the details and closeups of my layout. Now go find some Tales Of You and Me and start creating that next gorgeous project!! You will NOT be disappointed!!
