Enchanted Garden Blog Layout

So today I'm sharing a layout made with the Enchanted Garden Collection that was actually one of my first ever layouts featured on the Kaisercraft Blog. I did the Tuesday Tip ( Adding extra Bling) and used this layout as an example.

How gorgeous is this collection??? I really didn't have to do much with these gorgeous papers to find a bit of magic on his page! LOL
I have been asked a bit about the paper flower though... so here's how you do it.... 

You simply layer 2 each of 3 different size punched or die cut paper flowers, secure them with a brad and run them under some water ( Or spritz them) and then scrunch them up into a tight little ball. Unfurl them gently and dry gently with a heat gun.

I actually learnt this technique in a class with Sue Smyth, if you want to see some spectacular handmade flowers, pop over to her blog for a look!

For this pink flower I actually used plain old photo copier white paper and when it came to the wetting process I used pink and brown glimmer mist. Instead of a brad in the center I used some stamens and finished the whole thing off with some glitter.

Thanks for popping by for a look!
Cheers from Kel.

Beautiful layout as always Kel. I'm still not 100% sure on this collection! Love bits and pieces of it though and you've done it justice!

Was so lovely to meet you at Kaiser this week! My only regret was that we didn't take a photo! Oh well... there's always next year!
