Teresa Collins - Tell your story...


Hello again fellow scrappers, I hope everyone is well :)
If you're wanting to enter my giveaway, please go HERE

This month my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store contained 2 fabulous ranges! 
Teresa Collins - Tell your Story....and My Minds Eye - The Sweetest Thing - Tangerine!

The first layout I've created is using Teresa Collins "Tell your Story", and my layout is for Sketch #174 @ Skissedilla


The colours in this range are fabulous...they're so fun & vibrant & go together so well! 
I love them <3.  To create my background on the reverse side of the Flowers PP, I've used my new CW Mini Hexagons template using both Orange & Spearmint acrylic paints mixed with texture paste...then I've misted over it with Mr Huey's Calico White.  (A more detailed list of products used is listed at the end of this post)













In my cluster I've used a few of the new flowers to The Scrapbook Store - the main flower is the 5cm Apricot Mulberry Paper Rose and the smaller 2 are the 2.5cm Aqua Cherry Blossoms.
There are a heap more of sizes, colours & varieties in store & you can check them out HERE ....they really are great value for money!

Also tucked into my cluster is an ultra gorgeous love bird button from Lil' Red Rocket <3



And here you can see the beautiful Celia's Flourish Frame from 2Crafty that I've simply painted in Spearmint Acrylic paint & then wiped some Gesso here & there with my finger.
 
You can also see some of the Die Cut Border Strips from the TC range in under the CB frame....these are so quick & easy to work with...& look great :) 
 
  
And a close up of a few of the butterflies cut from the Butterfly PP
 
  
 
Well, that's all I have for now....but will be back sometime soon with my next creation from my DT kit ....possibly using MME - Tangerine!
 
Until next time...happy scrapping & thanks for dropping by xx
