Cocoa Vanilla Fre Spirit - Peace by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

This week I am back again with the delightful Cocoa Vanilla collection, Free Spirit. Just perfect for my own little free spirit in today's layout; Peace.

Once again I have used that denim paper from the Hello Sunshine collection as it goes so perfectly with this collection, and of course the dress! I've teamed it up with the softer patterns of the Free Spirit collection and used the gorgeous pastel background of the Dreamy paper. 

I've left the background plain as I just adore the bubble pattern! Instead I focused on the frame to add some softness to the page and tie my colours together. I wanted a soft pastel feel to the frame so applied some gesso, then once that was dry, I sprayed some Dylusions and Dsitress inks and dabbed them dry to get a soft colour. Once done, I added some sploshes of gold with my Gold Lame colour shine. 

I've kept my embellishing to a minimum too, a few choice flowers, some hearts and finished off with some enamel dots. I love how the frame really focuses the photo.

Thanks for stopping by
Till next week
