Title Author Description


For the second August Design Team challenge, we were to use the Husk grid paper, use Page Pattern #14 and use either handwritten journaling or a clear stamp or a free download.

Here is Page Pattern #14. It features space for 16 photos.

In my scrapbook every year, I like to feature a page that shows off some of the flowers in my garden. I decided to select a few blooms that I really liked to showcase. My anemones and my scabiosas are pretty in mass, so I decided to use those as a 16 photo background and set the 5 prettiest blooms off at angles.



I chose the squiggle line stamp from the Summer Seals set (it reminds me of snail trails) and I used a small flower stamp from the Calendar Circle set in the squiggle valleys. I added yellow Viva Decor Pearl Pen centers to the flowers. I went ahead and used handwritten journaling as well, to document what my page was about.

I love love love this layout! I would never have thought to put the diamonds on top of the squares!! And the squiggley doodles on the border are great!

I don't know how you did it but it looks like you placed a picture behind the word "blooms" at the top of your layout. It looks great! The whole layout does. I love flowers so how can it not be beautiful?

Not sure which is more beautiful...the garden or the layout! You must have a magic touch with flowers!Love the squiggle line in the border also!

What a "beautiful" layout. I am thinking of scraplifting. Wow and great job!

Ditto Andrea, Linda, and Deborah's comments - and I love how you used the clear stamps to create your border.

I absolutely agree with Linda about the mosaic effect from the offset/angled pics! Brilliant effect . . . really top-of-the-line work, here! (on the garden and the layout!)

I believe you have outdone yourself with this one. I love it all, but especially the five squares which highlight the close ups. This looks like a true mosaic, and I really love it! (I'd really like to see your garden.)

Sarah, you must have a beautiful garden. I really like that you used four sections to give the flowers a full look. Flowers for your corner squares tie in so well, especially with the "bloom" border that you stamped. That turned out so well! Adding the extra blooms really changed the look of the pattern.
