                                         London, England

A wonderful Fall greeting to you all!   Kathleen here with a  new layout I created for Creative Embellishments.  My daughter, Katie, and I visited London this summer.  We found a concrete bench with this adorable book cover of the back how apropos!

I wanted to give this layout a the feel of a city.  I used the Distressed Plaid set 2 rubber stamp  to create the bottom border.   Under the lions (reference to Trafalgar Square) I used the Grunge Icicle border stamp  in red.  These stamps are sooooo incredibly versatile!!   I love them!!  You will be see a lot more of them in the future.  They are simply must haves!!

I adore these flourishes!!  This is Flourish 15 which received first a  layer of pasted ink, then random touches of bolivian blue Silks, followed by spritzing of Shimmerz Vibez sunset strip and Spritz truffle.  It gave it that wonderful grunge feel.

Finally a close up of the flower arrangement which gives other more English flavor from Savile Row tailoring with the scissors then shoes for walking around and tea cup and pot.  I hope you have enjoyed this layout and I can't tell you how much I appreciate your visit.  Tata for now!  Kath
