Eden in bloom...

When I was ill a few weeks back I spent a lot of time with my laptop in bed catching up with scrapping videos on Two Peas in a Bucket and one of the mood to scrap videos by Lizzy particularly inspired me as I liked the composition, the misting and the border effect on her finished layout.

On our recent pre-baby trip to Cornwall we were lucky enough to visit the Eden Project and I particularly loved all the colourful flowers and so we both posed for a picture in front of the blooms which co-ordinated best with our outfits! What a scrapper hey?

I liked the idea of getting messy with paint and stencils and so used a doilie as a mask and smooshed yellow paint on.
I was hesitant about using purple, yellow and red together but I love it.
I used the rule of three with Amy Tan embellishments to add interest to the page.
I liked the idea of creating washi tape flags to embellish the photo.

Hopefully it doesn't look like too much of a scraplift - I just really loved the original layout and it worked really well with the bits and pieces that I picked out from my stash.
Thanks Lizzy and Two Peas for the inspiration.


  1. I took hundreds of flower photos at the eden project. i love what you have done with you - a super colourful layout Mel x

  2. Woah that's a busy page! but love it all, especially the doilies and the different strips of patterns!

  3. Wonderfully colourful and your treatment of those super photos matches them perfectly. I've never been but it's on my list :).


I appreciate all of the comments - they fuel my blog. Thanks for visiting!
