Sydney Calling

I used papers from Authentique Paper's beautiful Uncommon collection for this layout. I love how the grey tones of the Gifted paper matched the greyish tones of the wall in the photo, and the gorgeous rose prints from the Unique paper just lend themselves so wonderfully to hand-cutting. I applied some stickles to these roses for some added sparkle.

The chipboard pieces are from Dusty Attic. The Arch Window complements the arches in the photo, while the Fancy Trim below the photo complements the lace trim it's placed over.

I added some muslin behind the flowers for a soft touch against the brick wall in the photo, and to complete the layout, I used a couple of beautiful black crystal flourishes from Zva Creative as a contrast against the overall soft palette of the papers.

Here are some close-ups.

Thank you so much for dropping by, and for your much appreciated, lovely comments. :)
