Finished my layout for Let's Get Shabby's 1st Challenge. It is an INSPIRATION challenge. My inspiration for this layout was the silk florals that I plucked from an old arrangement. I loved the cream color with a touch of mauve in the roses and I also took the colors from the picture as inspiration. I wanted to use blue butterflies to pull out the blue in her jacket. The florals also matched the color in her shawl. The Anna Griffin paper worked great with the florals and also matched my color scheme. I purchased the old lace from a yard sale. The alpha stickers were old and from an album that you personalize the front of. I placed them on chipboard and cut them out and pop-dotted them to add more dimension since the florals had so much dimension. I rounded all corners of patterned paper and on the picture to soften it as well.
