My Happy Place by Charmane Koch

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you've had a lovely start to the week! I'm here with you today to share with you my interpretation of the August Moodboard/Sketch - I've taken inspiration from both. I think the Botanicals Collection is the perfect match for this!

Here's the Moodboard - there's still plenty of time to get your entries in!

I've used a few different papers to create layers - Here are the papers I have used:

I cut out the circle image from the Romance Paper, keeping the Floral corner as well - I distressed the edge...

Using a plate I cut out a circle from the Elegant Paper:

I also distressed the edge of this as well. Then stuck it over the top of the Romance paper...

I matted my photo using White Cardstock, a piece of hessian & a torn piece of cardboard - 

I also cut out some leaves from the Blooms cut out paper

I cut out the Stalks Die 3 times using both sides of the Bouquet Paper as I wanted light & dark "stalks" to add behind my matted photo...

I positioned the Die Cut & Leaves from the Bloom paper along with strips of distressed papers onto the papers...

I used Double Sided tape & Glue to stick them all down. I also machine stitched around both circles twice. 

I added string & paper flowers & Chipboard branches to my layout - plenty of layers on this page!

Using a small paintbrush I have flicked a bit of SOOT Colour Artist Ink around the edge of my layout.

I used a Word Cut Apart for my title...

I also had to make a Charms Creations to match the page...

I really had a lot of fun putting this page together - the Botanicals Collection is absolutely stunning! I will definitely be getting it out again!

Thanks for popping by!

Happy Creating!

XO Charm
