· So I’ll start with a confession… this is the second attempt at this page. I made one page with this photo and title and I just didn’t like it. I’m learning that I love texture on pages and my first attempt was too flat.

· I added texture to this page by putting some folds into the lace border before stitching it to the page. I also stitched the circles in a line and folded up the sides to add more dimension. This layering could remain in an album if adhesive foam pads are used behind the circles.

· I painted all my chipboard elements with white acrylic and then inked with a pink ink pad. I also inked the edges of the scalloped circles, kraft doilies and border punch strips. I used buttons as flower centres.

See you soon with more from Emy
