Beautiful

I don't seem to able to stick to a stash diet so I thought if I can't stop buying new stash it would be good if I actually started to use up my older stash! I love these Prima Flights Of Fancy papers and have been saving them although I am not quite sure what for. When I started this page I had an idea of surrounding the photo totally with flowers, butterflies, bling and other embellishments. Although the page hasn't quite turned out like that I am really pleased with the overall look and I think I am going to put it on the wall in my craft room.
I had a rummage through my vintage embellishment boxes and found these gorgeous 7 gypsies gaffer tape and Tim Holtz tape, both of which I had to have at them but had never used....until now!





The black swirl is a Fancy Pants glitter transparency, I didn't like the glitter side so I have used it face down on the page. I seem to be having a bit of a love thing going on with pearl swirls at the moment, the ones on this page are by Zva Creative. My favourite part of putting each scrapbook page together is the fiddly bits so the more I have to make myself the better. These Tim Holtz tattered floral dies were a really good buy, I have cut out three of the spiky flowers and two of the smallest flowers, inked the edges, spritzed them with water and then screwed them up. After carefully unfolding them I have left them to dry and then layered them up securing them together with a metal button.
On a recent shopping trip I found a hot glue gun in Wilkinsons for £6 and the packs of glue sticks for a £1, I had been looking for one on line for a while so thought this would be a good one to start with. I have been really pleased with it, it makes securing larger embellishments so easy and of course I always love a bargain!
Right better get on with the chores! Thanks for stopping by and I really do appreciate any comments that you leave.
