This layout was completed for the Let's Scrap challenge #156. The challenge was to use this photo as inspiration, a Let's Scrap Sketch, and journal. I took lots of inspiration from the photo. I tree lined walk reminded me of the Dallas Arboretum, so those are the pictures that I scrapped. I used the layering of my papers to mimic the layers of blossoms. I also created a center element and added black to mimic the path with centralized trees. I even added a floral motif to my layout. The black pattern paper is actually flowers, the main die-cut also has flowers on it, the green ribbon roses, and the cream floral ribbon all add to the floral motif.
I used this sketch from Let's Scrap 9-5-12:
I also played along with Apron Strings - Love Your Stash Challenge #15, round up some of whatever papers you collect too much of and use them. I have WAY too many pattern papers in general and specifically large die-cut papers. I used these KaiserCraft papers.
Here are a couple of close-up photos:
