I love this idea from Annette Green. Sometimes the design fills the whole page rather than a repeating pattern that you can easily cut and use anywhere. So for my pages, rather than cut a 4 x 12 from one of the other papers displayed in the WOTG, I used this piece above and cut two pieces at 2 x 12 of the left and right edge of the paper then put them together.
Another one of my favorite accessories that I always keep on hand is the Mocha Opaques adhesive gems. The warmth of the mocha gems coordinates perfectly with the warm colors of the Florentine paper. They were perfect little accessories for the center of the flowers.
All the items used to complete these layouts can be purchased on my newly designed website. Below is a complete shopping list. If you would like to come create these layouts with me then come to the workshops held the 3rd Tuesday and Thursday of the month. Space is limited so contact me asap to rsvp.
