HELLO everyone!
 I'm back sharing my 4th layout working with the 
AB Studio - Shabby love Symphony paper pack!!

 I have to admit have even purchased more

 of the papers to have sitting in my stash.... LOL!

This layout features myself AGAIN!  
I know right! SHOCK HORROR....
 twice in 1 month.... 

BUT I just couldn't resist it with Annabelle Acrylic
 recently releasing some new products 
& this title 'But first COFFEE' title &
 I had a photo that I had taken this selfie
 a few months back, it perfectly with this GORGEOUS paper range....
'But first COFFEE'

Papers used from paper pack : Aurora No.2 ,
The Other side No.3 , Pearls No.6
 & a few images from the bonus sheet,
a few of the Prima Nightfall pearls, 

some beautiful assortment of 49 & Market flowers, 
and Annabelle Acrylic buttlerflies in black
 & - 'But first COFFEE' title

Which I did alter a little,
 by applying some black heavy gesso to COFFEE!! 
 I am really happy how it has turned out....

AND that's it from me for now!! 
I hope you have enjoyed viewing 
my layouts with the

Anna's Craft Cupboard - ABStudio Shabby Love Symphony 'Sympohny of love'

Hello Everyone! 
Back with you to share
 my second layout created this month using the STUNNING! 
AB Studio - Shabby love symphony paper pack! 

This time focusing on the green & blue tones
 to create this layout that features 
my son & his grandmother (my mother)
'Symphony of Love'

Using papers from the pack - 
Pink Scents N0.4 , The other side N0.3 
Open this Window No.8, Pearl No.6
& the beautiful clock image fussy cut from the Bonus sheet... 
 Adding stamping using a variety of
 Kaisercraft stamps! 
some Prima gold Coast flowers & the green leaves,
then incorporating leaves that
I had created using a leaf stamp 
& colouring the centres, blue...
also a couple Prima Georgia blue 
Vellum butterlfies...
 finishing it off with white splatters!!!


YOU may have notice that the blue flowers on my layout, 
look different than the Prima flowers photo??
WELL THAT"S because they are....
I wasn't really liking the look of these flowers
 with the little gem in the centres for this layout,
 so I removed the centres & created 
my own using some clear glue & Prima Cooper Micro beads...
 That look pretty cool if i do dsay so myself! lol!!

I have more to share & will very soon.. so be sure to stop again soon...
