Geekin' It

Oh my word, I'm in love with these Maja Design papers called Coffee in the Arbour.  They are soooo my colours and I love the muted tones.  I coloured the image to match the papers and used lilac backing card to matt the layers.  I also used some of the paper to paper piece my Arianna Sprig die.

I love the stitched look around the panels which I think creates a bit of a vintage look and I rounded two of the corners around the image to soften it up a bit more.

I'm also getting into blonds at the moment, which makes a change from my usual brunettes.  I used E51, E53 and E31, but created some darker strands with a bit of DI Old Paper, so it's a real bit of mix and match!

Loving how you've rounded the corners on the image panel... a clever idea (that I've logged of course)... really brings out the panel! And of course, you've no need to be told what fab colouring you're doing.. and that I am also in love with those papers!!

Big hugs

PS.. also love how you've used your photo programme to do the close up of just the panel!
