Description/tips/techniques:
Oh my goodness, I had so much fun with these gorgeous Petaloo flowers! They are so detailed and go perfectly with Quick Quotes Cherry Truffle collection. I used bubble wrap and some acrylic paint to create the circular paint splash to the right of the photo. The layout was inspired by a sketch from sketch inspirations.

When I was in Washington in September for a Private Reserve, I was lucky enough to get to see, touch, feel and take home with me some of the new paper lines that are being released very soon. When I received my Petaloo flowers I knew right away that I was going to pair them with our new Dreamscape Paper Line. I used a 6x6 Stretch canvas, covered it with Dreamscape paper that I inked with a Verry Berry Powderpuff Ink Pad, I used the Grand Calibur to cut a frame which I glued the Teresa Collins chipboard saying (From the October Club Q) to. I surrounded the chipboard pieces with the beautiful Petaloo Flowers (includes Lavender Sweet Pea Flowers, Mini Lavender Roses, Lemon Canterbury Roses and Vanilla Canterbury Roses). I am going to hang this canvas in my scraproom so that I will always be reminded to be Thankful for all things.

i love the use of the flowers and the layering is beautiful! the bubble wrap idea had me laughing at first becauce i would never have thought to use something like bubble wrap in one of my projects, but the effect is adorable and now has me considering if that's a technique I might use in the future :)

Julie, your layout is gorgeous! If the little girls in your photo are your daughters, they are beautiful! Love your bubble wrap technique and will file that technique away in my mind for future use.
Michelle, your card is equally beautiful! The quote you used is wonderful and you made great use of the beautiful Petaloo blossoms. I love the purple/gold color combo.
I'm enjoying seeing the fantastic design team projects for both QQ and Petaloo this week and will hate for them to end. I hope the two companies will team up again some time in the future. Thanks again for all the inspiration.
