A little 'Summer Lovin'

During the month of August, Twiddleybitz combined with the Australian manufacturer Manor House Creations.  We had lots of fun adding the beauty and splendor of Manor House blooms to our Twiddley creations.

I have combined lots of Twiddleybitz loveliness with an assortment of Manor House blooms and The Scrapcake patterned papers. Manor House Creations are also the exclusive Australian distributor for The Scrapcake collections.

I just adore the gorgeous colours of the Summer City collection.  The pinks and crimsons remind me of hot summer days with spectacular sunsets on dusk.  The teal and blues are cooling and wash away the heat of a summer's day. 'Watermelon Splash' creates the perfect backdrop with accents from 'Paradise' layered over the top.  'Blue Lagoon' was used to cover the outside of the shadow box and it provided a wonderful contrast to the gorgeous splash of watermelon already incorporated.

The following TWIDDLEYBITZ elements were incorporated -

SB12001 12 x 12 Shadow Box
BOR031 Baby Sea Animals Border
SPK004 Steam Punk Clock with Gears
FLOR022 Long Flourish No Tail
FRA010 Circle Journal Frame
FRA013 Ornate Circle Frame
OVO17 Lighthouse Overlay
TEM009 Shingles Template



I added lots of MANOR HOUSE blooms to create a tropical oasis - you will spy Petite Roses - Blue, Melon and White, Idyllic, Winter's Song - Mittens - totally **heart** these beauties, Plain Janes and Taneisha.  Some of the blooms were easily altered with colour mists to create a coordinated look with the fabulous colours of the patterned papers.
Amongst the flowers sit some Twiddley sea friends - these were cut from the Baby Animals Sea Border.
One of the new Twiddleybitz page overlays is also featured - this one is the Lighthouse.  The lighthouse element was altered with  the assistance of one of the new templates - I have used 'Shingles', with lots of Texture Paste, Gesso, Diamond Dust and some misting. 
Some twine and Prima shabby metal elements and Say It in Crystals finish it off.

Till next time,
