G is for... Guirlande

As I'm sure you can tell from the title, it is time for another entry for The Craft Barn's Dictionary Challenge. This time it is letter G with no twist.

As you know I am using a French-English dictionary and so I have chosen the word Guirlande which means garland or wreath.

Quite a simple page this time with not too much dimension. It is getting quite difficult to work on the pages in the book now as the pages are no longer lying flat. All the elements for this design were made off-page using die cuts (Memory Box Grapevine Wreath for the wreath and Tim Holtz's Tattered Flower Garland for the flowers). See how considered this page was? - "Wreath" and "garland" dies - all totally deliberate! ;0)

The cardstock is all core'dinations and the red flowers were embossed with a text embossing folder.

The gems are from Kaisercraft but have been toned down a little with some Butterscotch Alcohol Ink.

Thanks for looking, hope to catch up with you soon.

  7. Sweet little wreath! I like the extra texture you've given the petals with the embossing - I wouldn't have thought of that. Hugs, Cathy

  14. Great page as you always do (I'm a fan :))
    Never heard of "guirlande" for a wreath. It would be more "couronne" in French. For me "guirlande" is a tinsel, like the xmas one you put on the tree. Dictionaries can be weird sometimes LOL.
    Anyway, it does not take the wow factor of your page.
    Thanks for playing with us at the Craft Barn.


Thanks for sharing your happy thoughts. Maisie Moonshine x
