'Your Shelter' Layout by Helen Tilbury






Hi there :)  Helen here with another layout for you - this one was inspired by
the Prima Product Pick for February.  It's primarily a colour challenge and,
being Valentine's month {and day today!  Happy Valentine's Day!!} they are
primarily pinks, reds & purples.  As I have LOADS of flowers in my stash
I had no problem coming up with this layout...


I used the B side of an older Prima paper from the Paradise City
Collection (2009 - go me!) & prepared it by first stencilling over
an antique plastic doily (using Hard Molding paste by Golden)
then misting with several colours and brands of mist, including
white {Calico White by Studio Calico} that I simply ♥!!


Now can you spot all the Purple Pumpkin goodness in here??
Firstly I used a red lace flower (cut in half - go for it!) from
the store HERE.  I also used another ribbon lace flower (the
beige one on the left of the photo) which I also cut in half.

It's a great way to save & spread your embellishments around
your pages.  You can buy similar ones HERE.  See the cameo in 
the top left corner of the photo?  That is also a Purple Pumpkin 
one which is not currently available but there are similar resin
 flowers available for purchase in the store HERE.


Above you can see the red lace flower really clearly.  I sponged it
with gesso & used the other 1/3 of it up above my photo underneath
my title.  I also used a LARGE and an XLARGE fabric button
here, under the photo, which you can buy HERE and HERE.


I also used some Purple Pumpkin washi tape in various places
on my layout (I find the best way to do this on shabby style layouts
is to tear it).  You can buy that HERE.  A HUGE selection at
the best price (I can see!) online!!  I also used another resin flower
cameo in this cluster & also a felt doily-die-cut from a past 'Limited
Edition' kit - so there is PLENTY of Purple Pumpkin product here.


Here you can see lots of little bits of the torn washi tape I used.
I really loved creating this layout - everything just came together
without a hitch & it helped me enjoy and deplete a significant
amount of my Prima stash too.  I hope you enjoyed your peek
at my latest Purple Pumpkin page!
