Scrapbook Garden Design Kit - Grandma Green

This is the first of two layouts for the Scrapbook Garden
Design Kit for this month.

I thought the colours would be perfect for this particular photo
of Grandma Green.

Starting with the 12 x 12 in Bazzill Haley Cardstock,  
 I cut out the shaped panel using a large template.

I added it to the Bazzill Vanilla Cream 12 x 12

Next I gutted the papers so that I could use the pieces
for other things

      Next I added an 8 ½ x 8 ½ panel cut from the centre of a 12 x 12 sheet of GlitzDesign French Kiss Fleur. (Keeping the outer border for another project) 
       The addition of some black lace edging cut from a Tim Holtz alterations die finished off the edges of the Glitz Design French Kiss Fleur

      I added the title of Grandma Green using American Crafts: DIY Thickers –Macaw for the ‘Grandma’ which I inked down with the Memento Dew Drop Ink Pad in Rich Cocoa

       I added 7 ½ x 7 ½ panel in Glitz Design: French Kiss - Floral  to which I wrapped around some Bazzill Tulle - Truffle  and tied it at the right hand side in a knot

        The addition of a large flower to the bottom left and two smaller flowers top right were cut from the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, using the Glitz Design French Kiss both back and front and some Personal Impressions Canvas Cloth (reverse side)  and edged all the petals using the Memento Dew Drop Ink Pad – Rich Cocoa to give some depth to the petals.
      the ‘Green’ was cut from the Tim Holtz Market Place die Alphabet using the Black to match in with the Lace Edging border.
        Next I attached the picture and the journaling which was matt on both the Bazzill Haley Cardstock  and the Bazzill Vanilla Cream

Thats everything for this layout.
