A Look @ Manor House Creations: Part 2

Hello fellow scrappers :)~ I hope you had a great weekend and are ready for a whole new week~! I'm not sure what happened this month, but it seems I've had a new post every day all month- and I don't think that's a stretch, lol. I've just been busy, busy, busy creating and have SO much to share- so if you can't keep up, don't worry, I don't blame you at all! Things are sure to slow down later in the month as it always does :).

But I'm glad you're here either way as I have another Manor House Creations project to show you:

"Wild Thing"

This photo of my Gunner in his Halloween costume made me think of the little boy in the book "Where the Wild Things Are", and inspired this layout. 


The colors, the "trees", the little boy in his costume...I love when a photo inspires me and leads to further inspiration like this :). I was a bit unsure of how I felt about the stamping that I did, but in the end I felt okay with it as it compliments the idea behind the layout...or at least that's what I told myself, ha!


I've used a variety of gorgeous new Spring Collection flowers from Manor House. Some of them I dressed up with some beads and glitter. I've also outlined my stamped image with glossy accents and seed beads.


I love to mix paper and fabric flowers, and the gorgeous "Powder Puff- Melon" layered fabric bloom and glittery "Capri- Aqua" flower (one of my faves!) perfectly compliment the "Wild Orchid- Green" paper flowers to create some beautiful clusters!

 Thanks so much for coming by today :)~ have a good one!
