... my inner Iris (that's my idol Iris Babao-Uy) when I made this one:

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, Papers: Websters, BasicGrey, Stickers: Websters, Flowers and stamp: Prima Marketing, Chipboard: A2ZEssentials, Mists: Maya Road, Tattered Angels, Conchos: All About Scrapbooking, Paints: Ranger, Making Memories, Ink: Ranger, Clearsnap, Tsukineko, Other: Lace fabric, leaves, gesso, corrugated board, thread.

Not my usual, I know, but still I want to surprise myself from time to time. Flowers galore!!!

Had a hard time adhering the vine so I sewed it on some points.

This rose is originally white, I just misted it to get that sparkly red color!

The leaves were too dark green (thanks Ember for the leaves!!!), so I still topped it with a lighter shade of green and some gesso for added effects.

I used Coffee Shop mist, crackle paint, and gold acrylic paint to achieve this texture on my chipboard:

I got myself a treat - - I enrolled in Iris' next class (I think this one will be held in February). Soooo excited already!!!! I want to try making more "shabby chic" layouts in the future - - although that will mean I have to replenish my stocks of Prima flowers. ;o)

Thanks for looking people!!!

This is FABulous Janis! It's always fun to try something different to your usual style - and you never know what you might find!

Oh, it's just wonderful! I was totally thinking "Iris" when I saw it...I'm a big fan of hers and yours. Nice work!

I love lots of flowers, and especially in clusters, so this layout "speaks" to me (smile). It is really nice.
