Guest Designer - Gwen Wruck

Hi Everyone...

I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be the guest designer this month and have the opportunity to play with some shiny new PP buttons. As soon as I opened my pack the XL Retro girl button caught my eye. My daughter Caitlin started Prep this year and the little girl on the button had a uniform just like hers!





I have layered up a doily and lollipop flower and frayed the lollipop flower edges a bit which adds texture and softens it. I also added a bright red spotty button tucked under a flower for a splash of colour. This really helps tie the colours of the layout together.



I'm quite addicted to twine and use it on almost every page I create. I tie it in bows, loop it around flowers or buttons and tie it in knots - the messier the better. The Purple pumpkin twine is just so nice to use, it's soft and loops really easily.



I have also stacked two buttons together here to create a feature. They squish really well!





I was soooo excited when I saw these cute little lady bird buttons.. they are the sweetest. I'm sure many of you snapped these up in the latest sale.





More layers starting with a doily and lots of co-ordinating spotty buttons and flowers.



Next up is goodies from the Vintage girl kit... For this layout I have pulled off the centres of the flowers and switched them for larger buttons. This changes their look quite a lot. I have then used the centre as a spot embellishment near my cluster.



The little girl buttons in this kit were soo sweet and the ribbon co-ordinates perfectly - of course! A ticket poked behind the cluster is also a sweet little touch.





One more layout to show you. For this one I have sprayed mist onto a plastic sheet then dabbed with my finger onto the buttons and doily. Neutrals are always good choices as you can adjust them easily with paint or mist to make them any colour you like.





and last but not least an off the page project. The vintage flowers are to die for; such a perfect touch to a pretty project.



and that is it, Phew! Thanks for getting this far... I know most of you will already have your goodies from the last sale and are ready to play. If you are looking for a place to start be sure to check out this months challenge sketch - there is still time to give it a go!
