A lot of Templates and other stencils, usually what inspires me, the options are endless. 

I have chosen one of my favourite family photos inside the circle of my flower which reflects my title ‘grows with love’ I wanted to have a tree and a farm like garden. Also I wanted to add my favourite embellishments being, butterflies, birds, flowers & fences to give a free and happy feel in the background. The tree was created using the Tattered Angels masking template and then with my love for circles, I cut lots and put them around the tree.

I created some hidden journaling as parts of the petal that will slide out to tell our story. I love how objects around you can help create, as I have used a bottle to make the round shapes of the scalloped petals. To make the journaling parts more obvious I made four of the petals to have little handles so you’re able to pull it out easily. The embossed petals are created so the circle could be stuck onto something. I wanted the large circle to be lifted off the page more and have used foam mounting board to help with this.
some more close ups.....

enjoy & keep smilling!
