Today it was my turn to host a blogpost at the Maja Design blog and I made  this Layout with lots of hydrangea. 

I really love hydrangea, I have a big pink one in my backyard and planted a white one as well, hope it will grow very big too.
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
For this layout I used the  vintage summer basics collection.

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.

Wat een schitterende layout met die hortensia's Lenet. Ook de opengewerkte randen vind ik erg gaaf en dan die mooie zachte hoor.
Lieve groetjes Miranda

Dit is echt helemaal jouw stijl, prachtig. Zo mooi zacht van kleur en prachtig in laagjes. Dat gedroogde Gipskruid doet het er erg leuk bij. En wat een mooi detail die ingescheurde hoeken waardoor het blauwe papier nog zichtbaar is, geweldig!

groetjes van Ank
