Petaloo and May Arts. A match made in heaven
These are my first projects for the Petaloo Design Team and how lucky am I that just as I came on board Petaloo was pairing up with May Arts to do a blog hop! *insert angels singing* Think about it....how much better does it get when you have flowers in one hand and ribbons & lace in another? On the flip-side, do you know how hard it was to pick just a few ribbons to go with a few flowers? It was just cruel! LOL So many choices and so little time! Make sure to head on over to Petaloo's blog and see all of the breathtaking creations by the DT and then hop on over to May Art's blog and see what their DT is doing with Petaloo products!!!
As soon as I saw the lace I knew that I needed to have it on this page. I love lace and can't get enough of it! I really love the way the lace softens up my page and adds a nice girlie touch to my photo.
I used one of my paper punches that adds slots for lacing ribbon. I love how the brown ribbon plays off of the blue. Isn't that green dragonfly Glitter Critter a hoot! He is soooo cute.
I love, love Petaloo's Color Me Crazy flowers. I took two of the flowers and used Smooch Spray to give them a pale lilac color. Then I took darker purple Smooch and edged the petals and tips of the petals for a nice contrast. The green, jeweled Estate Collection flower is really a perfect compliment to my other flowers. Combined, they pull the purple and green colors from my photo. I tied it all together with this beautiful, big blue bow.
I had a lot of fun with this page. I used Donna Salazar's Antiquities line for the paper because it just goes so well with my photo. May Arts sent this awesome, brown textured ribbon and I knew that I had to use it. I covered one of the mats I have behind my photo I just love how it brings such an earthy feel to the page.
In keeping with the natural feel, I chose these Petaloo Chantilly flowers and the Color Me Crazy Wild Spray. It feels so fresh when I look at it.
I once again used the lace we received and added it to the bottom of my frame to soften it up just a bit. Doesn't it look cute with my ribbon buckle?
I hope you have enjoyed my first projects for Petaloo! I had a lot of fun making them. Thank you so much for stopping by!
