After looking through some old photos I decided to complete a page about Fern. I know I am a little behind with Project 12 and Week in the life but I fancied a change.

I have been visiting  Merly Impressions website again and I decided to have another go at their competition.

We had to choose a line from the box above (horizontally, vertically or diagonally) which gave us 3 elements to use on our 12×12 layout. I chose 3 from the top......layers, Lace and Pearls.

Firstly I chose my favourite picture of Fern and thought about the colours I would like to use.

I then went shopping and found this beautiful, brightly coloured lace. I used the layers of the paper, lace, flags, title and brads.  Finally I used the pearls to show the flight path of the bee. 

A little description of the photo and my page was finished.

I would like to say it was that simple but it never is. I keep changing my mind and changing the design so it always takes me days to finally complete the page, but I am so pleased with the outcome :)
