Hi all, Donna here today with my memories Layout using the new Release HOMELY FLORALS COLLECTION. I am loving this collection from Couture Creations, it is so Australian with all our native flowers and my favourites to boot… I created the layout using two photos I took while in the outback of Australia camping which was perfect with all of the Homely Florals Collection..

After sprinkling some alcohol inks around the page and blowing them with the Alcohol Ink Blower, I adhered two die cut bases from the CO728537 Santas Sleigh Tall Card Die Set after lightly stamping flowers on top to give some interest.

Loving the effect of alcohol inks on photo paper and acetate which I used as mats for my two photos.

I wanted to cut leaves from this little die from the CO 728664 Hugs Sentiment Die Set using the same COAPC2 Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers as the flowers; so I scribbled them on plain cardstock and die cut them out. I coloured all the flowers and leaves with COAPC2 Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers and fussy cut the urn from the CO 728658 Diecut Ephemera Set. You can see the little leaves in the background that I die cut from the scribbled backgrounds as above.. This stamp is quite large and I love it. I added it on a black chipboard scrap to make it pop and arranged it in a fussy cut urn.  Isn’t the background stamp wonderful, just a little is needed to bring the page together. 

I have created a little Video to show you how I coloured some of the flowers using the COAPC2 Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers to colour them in.

I hope I have inspired you to create glorious things Hugs Donna xx
