The Scrapbook Store Maja Design Enjoying Outdoors

This month for The Scrapbook Store I am creating with the beautiful Maja Designs "Enjoying Outdoors" Collection. Here is my final layout for the month using these gorgeous papers

Be Happy Be Bright Be You
I know some of you out there aren't too keen on the colour purple, but I love it!! and it looks so dreamy when it's softened with cream and green tones.

How perfect do the Green Tara Azaleas and Mini Blossoms match in with these papers... looks like they were made for this range!!   The pretty Dusty Attic foliage chipboard pieces were altered with Beck Beatties's Tinby Designs Metallic Melts in Sherwood Green.  I used a sponge to apply gesso to the chipboard first, giving it a raised rippled look, then coated with the embossing powder and heat set.

The pretty frame was cut from a Kaisercraft Oval Ornate Frame Die and I also used the Kaisercraft Moroccan Lattice Die to create a template for my background masking.

The masked background was stamped with the Kaisercraft Lattice Texture Stamp in Ranger Fern Green Archival Ink.  I then randomly added some Violet Prima Glitter Glass by applying with glue and a small brush for some added texture
