One thing I consistently hear when I am teaching is that people are afraid to put flowers on their husband's or son's pages. I don't have a hard time with this at all. My husband, of course, loves the rustic outdoor pages I create for his book, but he also loved the colors on this page. This is Chantilly, and it's matching dimensional elements. Are you surprised? .I sure am! On first glance, I think when we see this paper packet we see the pinks, yellows, and greens. But I created this layout to bring out the warm blues of twilight. I used the Artiste cartridge to cut the title "spring." The little treasure on these two pages is the use of the large rose from the March Stamp of the Month. I tucked them behind the clusters.
So there are flowers, spring colors, and pink glitter gems. I hope I've inspired you to step out of the "normal" colors and try something new with your pages!
