Pink Paislee Cedar Lane - Be Your Self by Rachel Lowe:

Happy Monday everyone!

I just fell in love with this collection for it's colours, florals, dashes of gold and the fox die cuts (which are so cute).
As soon as I saw the beautiful flowers I had to fussy cut them!

 This layout is quite shabby 
chic (not my usual style) and I am happy with the way it evolved (it is always good to
 go out of your comfort zone every now and then!).
I painted the 2Crafty Viney page frame in a soft green (how divine is the vine frame by the way!). 

I then embossed the 2Crafty chipboard butterflies 
 (I have layered a small on top of the large one) and the  'Be Your Self' 2Crafty title in gold.
I have foam taped the hand cut flowers. I painted three of them with water colour paint in
 a soft pink. Behind them to add extra texture I added cotton also in a soft pink. I then 
added blue centres and again used foam tape to add even more layers.
I splattered the wood grain paper with some gold colour shine.
I used vellum paper behind my photo to soften the overall effect.

Here is a close up of the gorgeous fussy cut flowers.
Isn't the arrow just too cute!

See how good the chipboard butterflies look embossed and layered up on top of each other.

Chipboard always looks fantastic when it is embossed and the 
gold really shines and contrasts on this page.

Thanks for stopping by for a look today.

You could easily scrap lift this layout and create your very own shabby chic layout
