Leaf Sprig and Rosey Posey | Karen Jarman

Hi CTY Creatives

Karen with you today,. I hope you are getting an opportunity to create this month. The year seems to be flashing by, my creating time gives me a moment to stop and take a breath. My share today features the wonderful Leaf Sprig and the Rosey Posey file, it was absolutely a gorgeous fit to my photo and of course the CSI Challenge No. 381.

I used a couple of techniques for the cut files, the Rosey Posey file got the water colour treatment and I backed the rose portion with vellum and the Leaf Sprig was backed with some patterned paper.

I initially drew inspiration from the photo prompt for the colour tones (pink) but the layout took a mind of it’s own as I was creating. I have represented the tiers as all of the layers on the page. The challenge also has a list of evidence items which included a wreath so although I went a little rogue with the colours it is still very much inspired by the challenge. That is my favourite thing about completing challenges you can use whatever you want to gather inspiration and take you layout anywhere! Check our the challenge information here.

You can see how this one developed on YouTube, I would love it of you visited.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
