More Sunrise-Sunset from Prima - by Linda Eggleton

Good morning there crafters, and thanks for visiting today :)
I am back today to share more loveliness using Prima's Sunrise-Sunset collection
I just love this collection!!! It is such a joy to work with such gorgeous papers, and the colours in it are just beautiful!
So here is my layout...based on the Once Upon a Sketch December challenge.
"One October Afternoon"

Lots of Manor House, Prima & Green Tara blooms & some fabulous 2crafty chipboard on this one. I just love that 2crafty circular panel (and I have some left over for my next project too!) and the summer leaf stem is gorgeous too.

Here's a bit of a close up of the circles, which I've simply coated in gesso and used it as a frame/base for my photo.  Also my title....and some of the background template work.

Main cluster of Manor House, Prima & Green Tara flowers....I love how all these flowers mix together so well :) There's also one of the Prima Vintage Mechanicals & 2crafty leaves tucked in there too.  The leaves have been coated in gesso & then coloured using my Gelatos (such fun!)
I added a bit of green to my background work to help tie it in with the colours of the photo... I love the outcome & the colour combo!

Another small cluster of mixed flowers & another vintage mechanical.

Some strip journaling (my fav!)...and more of the template work randomly done over the background.
I first used modelling paste with my CW template, then once it was dry, I sponged on some green gelato with an ink blending tool.

And here you get to look into the photo & hopefully get just a little taste of how amazing this place was - The Dark Hedges in Northern Ireland.....Isn't it spectacularl? I absolutely loved it!!
Ok that is all from me for now....until next time, happy scrapping!
And Merry Christmas to you all from the team here at All About Scrapbooks.
