Today it was my turn to host a blogpost at the Maja Design blog and I made this Layout with lots of hydrangea.
In my frontyard I have a white one with big balls of tiny white flowers.
I own a lot of hydrangea flowers from prima marketing and wanted to really start using them so I decided to make this lay out filled with hydrangea.
I also wanted to use some real nature thing in it so I went out to my garden and gathered some old little branches and plants that I had put aside for the birds to use building their nests, sorry birdies but I will refill soon. It’s fun to use natural things like this on your layout so I might go use it more often.
I made some tears on the edges of the top layer, distressed them so you can see the paper underneath and made stitches by hand on each side of it.
I also tucked some pink dried baby’s breath between the flowers, I love this delicate little flower,
and always keep and dry them when I get those in a bouquet
With this Lay out I also join the More than words challenge of this month. The theme is Discover and use some old stash. My old stash are the flowers and the old nature stuff I used . I was inspired by the word discover. I went on a discovery trip thru my old stash and discovered the tin containing the hydrangea. discovered I still love them and found it a little hard to use them . But I think that's what this challenge is all about, to finally use some of your old stash.
Thank you for visiting my blog , I hope I gave you some inspiration with this layout.
If you leave a comment I will come over to your blog too, to take a look at your projects.
