Inspired by Nature…

The layout for these pages have been inspired both by the photos & of course the Stamp Set – Inspired by Nature.  I think this set is perfect for these photos without taking away from the photos.  I love to scrap my photos, while at the same time not have the photo/s become lost on the page.

I matted my photo onto Crumb Cake & then onto Garden Green Cardstock.  I inked my image with Crumb Cake Ink & radomly stamped around Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I tried to bring the weeds from the photo onto the page.
Wanting to add a little bit of green & the colour of the T-Shirt Amber is wearing, I decided to ink the flower image using Garden Green, So Saffron & Pacific PointSU Markers & stamp over the top of the reeds.  I repeated this step twice.  I then applied Crystal Effects to the flowers so that the colours would pop out more.
Once the Crystal Effects had dried, I adhered my photo to the page.
Using my Basic Black SU Marker, I wrote onto a scrap piece of Vanilla Vanilla, punched out using my Oval Punch & adhered to a piece of Pacific Point Cardstock, which had been punched with my Scallop Oval Punch
I punched a hole either side of the oval with my Handheld Punch & thread a piece of Linen Thread through either side.  I think this blends in well with the whole scrub theme.

This page was really very easy & took all of about 5 minutes.
I matted my photo onto Crumb Cake & then to Marina Mist Cardstock.

I stamped my reeds onto Very Vanilla Cardstock with Crumb Cake Ink.  I again inked my flower image with Pacific Point, Garden Green & So Saffron SU Markers & stamped them onto the page.  I applied Crystal Effects to the flowers & set aside to dry.

 I adhered my photo the centre of the page & with my SU Basic Black Marker, wrote a little bit of “What’s Happening
