Sweet 4 ~The Color Room~

Hi there!
It`s Friday and the new palette is revealed at The Color Room! This week`s palette #97 is a masculine one and it`s based on one of the awesome collection of Maja Design - "Vintage Winter" collection!
Because I didn`t have "Vintage Winter" collection I had to improvise and use my own stash to create this layout. And even though it`s a masculine palette I decided to use it with a photo of my daughter....
To create this layout I mixed 6 different brands pattern papers:
  • Magnolia pattern papers
  • Bo Bunny
  • Prima Marketing
  • Graphic 45
  • Making Memories
  • Basic Grey

And here are a few close-ups for you.....

  • Because I didn`t have flowers to match the pattern papers I used, I had to hand-made my own flowers.
  • The hand-made flowers were created with the help of Donna Salazar Rose Creations dies. 
  • Once I made other flowers with these dies and if you are interested please check this link -------> HERE

  • I stamped the background with LaBlanche silicone stamp.
  • The heart is from Prima Marketing pattern papers. The title letters as well.
  • The butterflies were cut out from Graphic 45 pattern paper.
  • The white cut out swirls are from Marianne Designs - Thanks, Corina! xoxoxo
  • The blue and red swirls are from Bo Bunny.
  • The black frame matting the photo is from Prim marketing Transparent sheet.
  • The heart was originally black and white but it was colored in with Copic Markers. It`s from Prima Marketing.

  • I used an embossing stencil to make the masking.
  • I also misted the background using Glimmer Mist (Blue and Brown)

  • The cute little birds are from Prima Marketing Transparent sheet.

Hope you enjoyed my post today! For more inspiration please check the amazing Photo Wall at The Color Room!

I`ll be tomorrow back with some great news :-))) please stay tuned!
Have a great day!
