Another self-made background


close up....


this time i need one for a layout that needs to be White + Olive Green, so I used my Olive Vine Glimmer Mist all over after stamping the images in Olive Green.
You can see "Paris" all over, guess you'll know this is for a photo in Paris


yes, that is Paris, my love......


Le Seine, to be exact.......



yes, sunset at Le Seine, what can be more romantic?


this is going to the challenge over at

WHITE + OLIVE GREEN + TWINE


besides the twine that i used to hang all those tiny tags, I also used a lot on the lettering


 my favorite is this letter "R"


thanks for stopping by, you might want to hop over to WHITE with 1 to play along with this fun challenge!

Beautiful Layout, Kirsty! I would have never guessed that you made the background yourself. It looks like a piece of paper I would have bought in the store. Fantastic! I love all of your little details too; tags, butterfly, bird and lovely flowers. You are so fantastically creative!

Stella said...

Kirsty you've outdone yourself!! Your handmade background makes me think of some Prima papers; it's time for you to join their DT :) I know for sure it would be a bestseller. Making a combo of white and green is just perfect for this elegant and romantic LO. I love all the effort you put into the lettering, the twine, the butterfly..well; all of it. Stunning!
