'Live, Laugh, Love Always' Layout by Helen Tilbury

Hello everyone - Helen here again today with another layout share.

I recently received the new 'Happy Christmas'papers from Inkido 
& used them to create a non-Christmas layout.

For my background I used 'Happy Christmas'Winter Fence paper
& for my layers I used 'Happy Christmas' Happy Mix, Happy Music
& Vintage Ornament, all of which are double-sided & I used both sides
of 2 of them, so all in all I used 6 different Inkido prints on my layout.

To embellish my layout I used Fashion Flowers in Pink, but I sprayed them 
with mist to darken them to a rust colour.  I also used Cherry Blossoms
in Natural White, & white Inkido lace which I also misted to match. 
 I also used half a pack of Parlor Pearls in Champagne, also from Inkido.

I used a butterfly stamp from Inkido, which I dipped into mist sprayed
 onto my craft mat, so that the image would be hazy & ethereal.

I punched some butterflies out of patterned paper & dotted them around my layout,
using Inkido pearls for the centres.I used some fine silver thread, some mesh tape
& some chipboard to enhance the Inkido product & add some additional textures.

The Parlor pearls work well as anchors to hold down the thread in places.

The Winter Fence print on the background is a very beautiful textural-looking print,
which I enhanced with various different mists lightly sprinkled on it to tie all the 
different colours together.  I also tore, sanded, distressed & punched the papers.

I layered everything up lightly & also used the negative pieces of printed paper
that I punched the butterflies out of, adding in a central pearl to the negative shape.

I hope I have successfully shown you today how to use the beautiful new
Happy Christmas collection for your non-Christmas photos too.
See you again next month.  Helen
