Back to Nature

Here's a layout I created using My Mind's Eye's Lost and Found 2 Blush collection. The soothing pink and mint hues of this collection are so sweet. Very un-me in terms of colour selection. :)

The photo was taken during my daughter's recent school field trip to Wales by a teacher who accompanied them there. I love the angle and composition of the photo.

I created a shadow box with the frame of MME's Beautiful Girl Lovely patterned paper.

The overall colour theme was kept soft and muted to allow the photograph to stand out. The title is in white in keeping with the muted tones of the layout.

A lovely butterfly pearl flourish from Zva Creative and some Zva flowers.

Some banners and birds cut from MME's Favorite Party Paper and popped up on the shadow box for dimension.

The layout is at PaperMarket if you'd like to take a closer look.

I like the depth of the shadowbox and the way the photo 'pops'!
