I I hand cut a random wavy edge all around the base paper and backed the whole page onto a sheet of Bazill Bling. I gently inked the edges and then repeated the same on the photo mat ( although I did use large scallop scissors to cut the mat).
I used a Bon Bonnerie net to create the skirt and simply folded it up, cut a small slice in the paper to poke it through and fixed at the back of the layout. I then just finished off the waistband with a couple of mulberry roses and some pearls.
I cut the bunting and birds from another sheet of paper from the range and added some flat pearls on each lacy banner. I used strips of crystals to edge the photograph and then finished off the page using 2 delicate flourishes that were die cut using the beautiful Valerian Flourish by Memory Box
I hope you have better weather where you are than we are having here. The winds are horrendous and have created havoc in our back garden and the rain ( although much needed)just doesn't seem to stop for long does it. Oh well, never mind. Enjoy whats left of the weekend....I am just off to make bacon butties ;) Warmest wishes Anita xx
