MHC: Sunshine & Love

"Her smile beams like sunshine,
which fills our hearts with

Loved putting this one together for my introductory project for MANOR HOUSE CREATIONS.  I have  combined beautiful blooms with The Scrapcake 'My Private Happiness' patterned papers and Twiddleybitz loveliness.

I first had a little play with Twiddleybitz Chevron mask, texture paste and glimmer mists to alter the patterned paper base.

I am also totally smitten with the beautiful Manor House Creations Winter’s Song blooms.  They are exquisite in detail and design, and the colours are just gorgeous.  Here I have combined the salmon pink from the Embers pack with the blue from the Log Cabin pack.  The petal from each of the blooms were separated with the centre of each bloom creating a focal point for the main floral cluster.  The remaining petals were then tucked into the floral arrangement.
Pretty Pink Idyllic blooms were misted to coordinate with the deeper salmon pink.  To soften a little, the petals were tipped with white Gesso.  Blue Sprinkles from the Cupcake Mix were also given a light treatment of white Gesso to soften and coordinate with the beautiful blue of the Winter’s Song flowers.

Behind the photo sits the frame work from Twiddleybitz Opening Gates and a Christmas Flourish was also incorporated into the large floral cluster.
Manor House packaging was also incorporated. The little girl holding the heart and a sprinkling of salmon pink heart flowers were cut from the ‘Sprinkles’ packaging and attached.  Twiddleybitz hearts create balloons which the little girls holds onto.
