Strong - Authentique - The Scrapbook Store

 Hello - hope your week is going well.  Just popping in to share my 2nd page using the 'Strong' collection by Authentique for The Scrapbook Store.
At first glance, this really looks like quite a masculine collection, but today I've managed to put a more feminine page together.
Here it is:

 The photo is a little 'selfie' of my youngest and I, taken  a year ago ☺  I've used pattern papers from the collection - the main one being 12x12 double-sided Marvelous.  It has lovely stripes and patterns and definitely has a feminine appeal about it.  I've done some machine stitching, using flowers, die-cuts and sequins. Here are some close-up's:

 When a paper collection does not have many embellishments, I tend to make my own - best of all they co-ordinate, as I use the paper from the collection.  Here I've made some large rolled roses using the Die-namics MFT Die.  I've also added in some blossoms and sequins for sparkle. 
 The word-cut-out 'you & me' is from the 12x12 double sided paper Foundations - I've cut it out and inked the edges.  There is also a Kaisercraft bloom and a little charm - Vintage Bike - which tells a bit of a story because the photo was taken at the park which we ride too!!  My journaling is printed from the computer - I've cut the words separately, inked the edges and then used foam tape to pop them up!
 Another embellishment that I've made - these are the die-cut balloons from Memory Box - I've inked the edges and added in a sequin - the paper doily gives the page another nice feminine touch ☺
And here is a super cute little wood veneer house by Prima - such sweet little details ♥

So that is another page and totally different from my previous one ☺  Hope you like ☺  If you love these products - you can check them out online at The Scrapbook Store - lots of great goodies in this shop and heaps more always coming in ☺  Thanks for coming by.
