'Paris' Layout by Helen Tilbury {based on the January Mood Board}





Hi everyone!  Helen here with you again!!  
Happy New Year from me!!!
Here is my take on the January Mood Board.


I started out by using the "Happy Christmas" patterned paper "Winter Birds".



I whited out the centre section using gesso & mists but left the outer
 edges of the paper to show off the beautiful snowflake print.  I also tore
 a couple of pieces of the paper in a contrasting colour, to use along the top
 & bottom of the layout to emphasize the diagonal orientation of my page.


I embellished my page with some beautiful Inkido laces, 
some of which I misted in blue & others that I left white.


Underneath my photo I used some more patterned paper from Inkido
in the Music Notes Design.  I like to tear my papers as it adds texture.


As well as the Inkido floral lace you see above I also used some tiny 
Inkido flowers {mini roses}, which I misted up to match my page.  


Above you can see how well the Inkido laces take to being 
recoloured using spray mists.  My advice is to spritz with water 
while still wet to ensure that they dye with an even coverage.


I tucked in various pieces of Inkido patterned 
paper underneath my photograph, for dimension.


I hope you will find some time to play along with our January
 challenge HERE!  Follow the link to read the simple rules.

  You have until the end of January to link up your project. 


I also used some other pretty Inkido flowers on my page.  
The lovely Cherry Blossom ones HERE.  Lastly I sprinkled
some beautiful Inkido bling dots around my page, confetti style.
The ones I used are called Champagne Pearls.

Thanks for your visit!!  I will be back again next month :)
