Hey scrappers! Thanks for joining me for Day 29 of our 31-day blog series! I have enjoyed myself so much this month, and I hope you've found plenty of inspiration, too. Even if you just had to pin it for later because things are too nuts right now!
Today's inspiration pages are all about the garden. Our hibiscus is just going crazy this year. Evidently whatever combination of rain and sunshine we had this summer, it really liked! I love taking pictures of the blooms in our own yard. It's fun to chronicle how the foilage grows from year to year, too.
I had most of a whole sheet of this pretty (but busy) pattern of peach florals on a black background, so I revisited the diagonal layout from Day 19, this time reversing the direction of the diagonal and making the angle sharper (and the edges torn.) It still kept the nice left to right progression of the page.
I cut the letters from the Wood Textures paper stack and sponged them with green, to suggest moss. The dragonflies were cut from the new Champagne Foil paper (coming in the 2017 Holiday catalog!) and the Detailed Dragonfly thinlets.
It was still lacking "something," so I fussy-cut several flowers to sprinkle around. Then the dragonflies looked more at home.
Wanna give this one a go at home? Here's what you'll need to gather:

Wow, this is an eye catcher! It's my very favorite one! Thanks for making it.

Great color contrast on this lovely spread. And the champagne foil for the dragonflies... perfect.

Hadn't thought about Peekaboo Peach with that DSP. Nice.
