Vintage Journal Card

Goodmorning Everyone!

Astrid here to share with you a card designed with the papers from the Vintage Journal Collection
from Meg's Garden. It's an Amazing paper collection and I really loved working with it!

So as you can see I used lot's af layers and different hight's, beside that I also distressed all the 
parts from this card. Distress Ink gave the finishing thoughts to this card.

The flowers from the flower part are a mix of Prima Marketing and Green Tara 
a perfect combination.....

Thank you so much for dropping by and taking a look at my little creation. While you're here
 why not take a further scroll through the Garden and see what the rest of the girls
have created.....

Mixed media covered mini photo album

Hello everybody,

as I love so much gorgeous paper collection "Watercolour in Blues" from Meg's Garden I made one more project out of it.It's a small photo album.I can say that this collection inspired me start to learn mixed media properly. And I am sure I found most amazing tutorials to easy follow for this learning made by Marta Lapkowska. So after few very bad pages I am now really happy from a page I made as a cover for this mini album.

In this project I used again blue and brown colours.I really hope you will like what I made using Watercolours in Blues collection

For better view and inspiration I also took a video: 

This is my sharing for today.Thank you so much for stopping by.
Happy crafting ;-)

Hello All 
Welcome to Meg's Garden Blog

' Watercolour in Blue' papers
I love working in blue & these beautiful papers are a joy 
available in various sizes to suit all forms of scrapping

I titled my album 'Life's Simple Pleasures' as we can all
Cherish, Imagine,Laugh, Create,Dream, Inspire, Live & Smile

I covered the album with fabric which is slightly padded on the front 
adding the blue heart which has extra padding, the buttons are stitched on
a pretty spray of flowers & butterfly to finish.
