A bit more 'Marigold'

Hi everyone. I'm back to share another layout using my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store. To be really honest, I'm not all that fond of the first two I did earlier this month. :(  So last night I sat down and realised that I just have to go with what comes natural for me. No use pushing the boandries every time hey? I had this beautiful background paper from the Kaisercraft 'Marigold' collection and found an older photo of my mum and I and this is what I came up with.
A little close up of the beautiful Dusty Attic Birdcage chipboard. Just spread a thin layer of Gesso over the top.  Also used some Texture Magic and my Crafters Workshop 'Cherry Blossom' template to create a subtle textured background at the top of my page.
The Collectables that come with this range makes it really easy to embellish your pages.  Also used a variety of Kaisercraft Paper blooms and Prima flowers.
I cut the leave using the Poppy Stamps 'Lorelai Leaf' die.
The chipboard words for my title are from the TSS Chipboard 'Assorted Words 07'.  Love using these smaller words on my layouts. :)   And I don't seem to ever get enough of using these Kaisercraft pearl strips. Just finishes a page of so nicely I think.
That's all from me today! I'll be back in a day or two with an exciting share. :)
Hope you are all managing to stay cool.  It's been extremely hot and humid in Perth for the last 2 days.  Looking forward to the cooler weather they are predicting for tomorrow.
Thank you for visiting.
Until next time!
