This time I wanted to create a secret garden…
where you are looking from the outside in.
I remember when I was young (yes, I was young once!)
and would love the feeling of secretly hiding away
in amongst nana’s flowers…unseen by anyone.
Her garden seemed so huge and there were many spots to hide in.
So, with this in mind, my focal image is set back amongst
the ivy and behind the flowers.

I have used Graphic 45 papers from Ladies Diary 
to create the corners with some extra cut out for added florals.
The girl is masked and the ivy is stamped around her.
The background is created with DI, dry embossed,
and coloured up so that the swirls stand out.
 I added some orange as an afterthought to contrast with the pink and burgundy.
For more swirling and movement I decided to added a feather.
(I had a left over duck feather…lol)
My nana had chooks, so the duck feather kind of fits lol…
The stamps used are from Crafty Individuals
 and Penny Black.
Leo at Flonzcraft is offering a very generous $20 voucher
to spend in his store for the winner,
and runners up and spotlights are up for grabs to!
