Manor House Creations - Beautiful You Layout

Hi Everyone,

Today I am sharing a layout created for Manor House Creations using the gorgeous "Beautiful You" collection of pattern papers and flowers from the Winter 2014 Collection.
To create the background I tore the yellow "In My Thoughts" pp diagonally, then backed it with the pink side of the "Fresh and New" pp.  I masked over the top using a floral stencil design and modelling paste.  Once dry, I misted with water and randomly added dabs of mimosa IZink, then spritzed with water again to created a watercolour effect.  I dried off and repeated with the geranium IZink.
I have used one of the Journal spots from the "Journal Sheet" pp, which I cut down into a banner to create my title, then lightly swiped the edges with gesso.
You would probably all know that I love to fussy cut.  Here I have fussy cut some of the roses from the pp's to tuck in amongst my flower clusters.  

I also fussy cut the clock section from the "Fresh and New" pp to make a little cluster down the side of my photo.
