Gigi By The Sea Shore

Hi there, this time I'm sharing a layout with one of
Paper Trunk's older lines called "Gigi".  When I was surfing through my papers I
immediately stopped at Gigi because it was a perfect match for the soft sky
blues in the photos I was working with.  These pics were taken on one of the
many shores of the Puget Sound.  It was a perfect match and I thought it
lended a bit of a nautical feel, especially when I added some handmade paper

The flowers are
preprinted on the paper, but I wanted to add a bit of dimension.  All I did was
take my Helmar acid free glue, trace around the flowers, then lay down some
twine. Since the glue dries so nice and clear I didn't have to worry too much
about my glue lines and if they were a bit messy.

For my birdie here,
I took a chipboard bird from Maya Roads and then layered some borders punched
from the "Gigi" collection that I inked and glued down with my Helmar acid free glue.  Then I just turned it over and took my xacto knife to cut away the excess.

I love the soft
shade of blue in the "Gigi" collection, it reminds of blue skies in the Spring
and Summer and I hope that Spring has reached to where you are in the world! 
Thanks for stopping by and may blue skies come your way!
