Today I created a 12x12 layout. The flowers and leaves are from the Sweet Magnolia Collection, but the paper is from the Climbing Clematis collection! They go together beautifully!! Purple and green is one of my absolute fave color combinations. I chose to lightly color the flowers and leaves as to not take away from the beautiful detail in them. I mixed some distress ink with water, to create a watercolor effect. I spent an hour or so in front of the TV creating the flowers and leaves first, this way all I had to do was arrange them onto the background I created.
I framed the photo using the Royal Elegance Frames die. I used the same patterned paper to layer the frame. Then I matted the photo on top. All of the flowers and leaves were used to frame it all around. I popped the frame from the background by adding a layer of corrugated cardboard underneath both the frame and the photo.
The title for my layout was created with the Royal Elegance die and I added the Today's Quote sentiment to it. So easy to create elegant titles this way. I did a little inking around the edge to have it stand out. I also added a piece of cardboard in between to give it some depth.
