Best Budz using my BEST Websters pages!!

These awesome papers are double sided and I so badly wanted to use both sides at once that it took me ages to figure out how I was going to do it. I cut out the floral edge first and turned the paper over and moved it 90 degrees, then I tore the cut edge and inked it to fold it back making it look as if I hadn't removed a third of the paper......(ps if you copy me please give me the credit..because I was kinda thinking that this is a genius idea!!)





A layer of Bazzill and corrugated cardboard, both gessoed and painted with custom mixed Jo Sonyas acrylic paints.






My MIL gave me these large foam letters as they were too big for her cardmaking, a close match but a little too bright so I gave them the finger paint treatment......


The other half of my wooden fence from Norburns was painted and wired with flowers...... ( I found one here just for you Sue Fernie)
I made a cardboard heart and added a Prima Painterly flower and a little cherry cut out from the Graphic45 papers.

I have shocked myself at how much I have enjoyed working with bright colours recently......I still believe its down to the beautiful design of these papers because most bright papers wouldn't get me near them!!


Love and fresh cherries in brown paper bags...yum..yum!!
