Le Jardin

Le Jardin by Marah Johnson
is a fun, funky collection with great colors and images.

MJ_Le-Jardin_Sneak-Peek

I chose to get a bit Artsy with my layout using this collection.
There was alot of mixing, spritzing,
image transfers and vintage lace going on!!

I cut the banner pieces from the Le Jardin paper and
image transfered them onto pieces of canvas,
along with 3 different Butterflies.

Then the color mixing began!!
Viva Colour ~ Haematite and Lava Red ~ Inka Gold
I used this mixture in a watered down state to dip the banner
pieces in, to color the Mini Pearl Daises.
In a slighty thicker state,
I removed blobs of each Inka Gold with my Palette Knife,
and mixed in a wee bit of water
then spread it through the Floral Stencil.
I did this process 4 times to create the three dimensional flower,
each layer cut out slightly smaller than the last

I also created a Funky card with this collection.
I cut out various images from the Seedlings paper and
accented them with Inka Gold.

The background paper was created by dipping the backside of the
Dragonfly paper in the left over watered down
Inka Gold mixture from my layout.
I hope you have enjoyed this collection as much as I have!!
