Today I have my projects to share created with the 1st new range for this month... the beautiful and oh so pretty "Secret Garden" Collection!!

 “Love With All Your Heart” Layout
 Really loved creating with this collection of pretty papers in pink, green and blue tones.  I decided to go for a soft and dreamy look by adding a white background and masking with the Leaves Template in white, then colour-washing the background using peach and pink Kaisermists and letting them blend together in some areas.   I then flicked white Kaiser paint (mixed with a little water) over the masking and once dry randomly stamped with the Vintage Fence texture stamp
To add a little dimension to my flowers, I glued some microbeads to the centres.

Other Product:  DM-1MM2M32 Derivan Matisse Light Modelling Paste, microbeads, doilies, ink

“You are So Special To Me” Layout
Kept the same theme as my first LO and went for a soft and dreamy.   I find that I tend to cut up the Specialty Papers rather than leave them whole,  This way You can use them over multiple projects... giving you great value.  Here I have used one of the gorgeous Specialty Paper Diecut Doiles as the base for my photo and cut it into 2 pieces, but have used both pieces on the one LO this time.  I lightly sanded the edges to create some softness.
I have quite a few paper blooms in my stash.  They are fabulous to use as they are, but you can give the flowers dimension, by folding them in half, then quarters, and adding some stamens to poke up through the centres.
