"In the Blink of an Eye" - 2016 TSS DT project - Lemoncraft "Neverending Summer"

Welcome and a very happy new year to you!
Today I have my very first share and my first creation for 2016. This month The Scrapbook Store has spoilt me rotten and sent me the gorgeous "Neverending Summer" collection from Lemoncraft. 
It is soooooooo very pretty! I couldn't wait to get started.

I have titled this layout "In the Blink of an Eye"
And isn't it true how very quickly they grow. It was only yesterday that I remember chasing around after Cydne, trying to keep up with her. My two girls are growing into the most beautiful of people. And I couldn't be prouder of them.


So the girls and I had a little photo shoot a few weeks back and this is my fave fave photo from it. I have used this photo once already and I am sure you probably noticed that I had, but I just couldn't resist using it again!


So the starting point for this layout was cutting up the board panels from The Journey into the Unknown patterned paper. I have used three sheets of this!! They are layered up and down and also sideways.


My titled was dressed with Liquid Pearls....allowed to dry and then dry brushed with gesso and a little Distress Ink (Walnut Stain).


Some close-ups of the flower clusters.



I didn't aim to use these hot pink flowers but one happen to fall onto my desk from a basket above and well the rest is history really. The colour I think makes the page pop and give it more depth.


And again.
I so hope you have enjoyed today's share of Lemoncraft's Neverending Summer collection. There are three more to come so stay posted.

I have  listed all the materials used for this below. All products can be purchased

Thank you so much for visiting here today. And until next time....
Happy creating.
