I absolutely adore the stunning new ‘Cherry Tree Lane’ collection with it’s vintage inspired papers and rich colour palette that is just timeless! While going through the papers I was drawn to the softness of the blue / grey of the ‘Quill’ paper (P2227) and couldn’t wait to play with it and mix it in with the soft pink of the florals. The colours set off the black and white photos I used perfectly!
I used ‘QUILL’ (P2227) as my background paper. Using a second piece of the paper I adhered strips of the reverse side and then covered with white Gesso:
Once the White Gesso was dry I covered the page with a layer of Clear Gesso. Once dry I lightly sprayed with Kaiser Mist in Winter Grey:
Next I cut out some of the gorgeous floral images from the TELEGRAPH paper (P2223). I adhered my two photos to my background paper using foam tape and then started embellishing with the cut out floral images, the Cherry Tree Lane Collectables, Paper Doilly and one of the postcards from the LETTERS Specialty Paper (PS476). These were all arranged to create flow diagonally across my page:
Finally I added in a few more embellishments to add dimension and texture across the page:

The Flourish Packs have a wonderful range of shapes to use on your projects and can be used raw like I have on this page or can be altered using a variety of mediums such as ink, paint or sprays:
