Better late than Never - Purple layout

 I hope everyone survived the snow and cold last week.  Lovely to see the sun and blue skies again. 

I have finally finished the layout for Week 5 of the Colour Class at Big Picture. (Class now finished) 
On the layout I used the Aubergine fabric from my daughter's dress on the layout and also made flowers from the fabric.
The title are Basic Grey alpha painted with Twinkling H2Os and mounted on a  'Flourish with a Bling' flourish (available at Embellish It)

 The leaves below are from a Stamping Up and punched after the cardstock was put through an embossing folder - very effective.  Found this technique at one of Deb McRobie's classes recently.
 I made the flower from the ball dress fabric by cutting out with the Tim Holtz diecut and layering up, securing in the middle and then applying heat from a heat gun to curl the petals up.  (Thanks Tania for this tip) Glass beads were added for the stamens.
Finished off with some Prima flowers, bling and leaves together with Wild Orchid flowers.
I have a scrappy time ahead with the Embellish It Raincliff Retreat next weekend and then in 3 weeks the Scrapping Patch Spring Retreat at Glentui Meadows with Steph Devlin the guest tutor.  I am looking forward to both but have a bit of organising to do with photos etc.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Until next time.....

Until next time
