"Giving Thanks" Layout for I Am Roses

I had some leftover Teresa Collins "Giving Thanks" paper leftover from last years mini album.  I do not normally work with oranges and browns but thought I'd challenge myself and pair it up with some orange and brown flowers Bunma had sent me.  I love how this came together , I think it is still "me" but in a different color scheme!  I featured a new long spray from I Am Roses - these long sprays make it so easy to arrange flowers on 12x12 layouts, just adhere and mix in some "loose" flowers around it - and voila instant flower fabulousness!

Here are some pictures of today's project:

"Beautiful Layout" Featuring I Am Roses White Paper Flowers Spray

I am over the top happy that I get to join the I Am Roses Design Team for another term!  Thank you Bunma, I cannot wait to create more projects with your over the top gorgeous flowers!  I think with every project I make I get better and am more comfortable mixing it up and making these flowers my own.

With this project I decided to color the flowers using distress ink.  For this layout I wanted an ocean color scheme and chose Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint - they go well together and it was fun to see how each flower came out different and unique.  I also used the latest spray that I Am Roses carries - I love how this spray can stand on its own and how detailed it is - so perfect for those 12x12 layouts.

Here are some up close photos and as always links to the flowers I used for this project and some other supplies I used.  You can visit I Am Roses here:
