The June challenge over at the Helmar blog is a colour-scheme challenge. Check it out for more details - it would be fun to have you play along! Would you believe these are all Christmas papers? They certainly fit the challenge.
Of course, I headed straight for my Green Tara flowers and trims to embellish the page - and found these beauties (Damask 8cm Fabric and Organza Flower Aqua, Heirloom 6.5cm Silk and Organza Flowers Dusky Pink, and Grey Blue):
You can also see a couple of the white Velvet Leaves, and the cream Spray nestled in with the larger flowers.
I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry on all the flowers, trims and embellishments. It has the strength to hold without needing gobs of glue that will show on things like this wire clip and the white Lattice ribbon. I tucked a few of the white petals around the paper layers as well.
Have you seen the '"Organza Butterfly on Wire" trims yet? They are fun and playful, and some of the colours would totally work on 'boy' pages, too!
