Welcome to May ...

This month we are going all out for something bright and happy and oh so girly.  Say Hello to GERBERA PETAL.

We hope you like our inclusion of a mood board to help inspire you ... we'd love to see some element or idea from here on your page. 

and some totally amazing inspiration from our wonderful team ...
(in no particular order)

For me the color of May is feminine, light and airy like the butterfly!

Caroline Elliam (Canada)
Coral is one of my favorite colors, it was really inspiring! From the images inspiration I choose the flower and put some on my page. I used Wild Honeysuckle coral from Lindy's gang for my water color background.

Natsuko Suzuki (Japan)
I used stencils and modelling paste to create texture and painted over it after it had dried. Then I dipped an old credit card in black acrylic paint and drew lines and splattered some more with a brush. I love how it spices up the layout:)

Lisa Johnston (Australia)
Gerbera Petal was a stretch for me - very girly ha ha

Tanya Heritage (Australia)

Louise Turner (Australia)
A patterned white background for something different. I like that the pearls a very feminine for this photo of ... Me!

Jessica Toulmin (New Zealand)
I was inspired by the flower on the mood board to create this layout about my wedding bouquet. All the fabric and paper flowers on my background are turned over showing the plain back (the fronts were all sorts of bold colours and patterns that I was never going to use). I also added in pink buttons all over the layout, also from the mood board. I loved how this layout turned out.

Melinda France (Australia)
Loved this colour! It inspired me to scrap another photo from our honeymoon. I particularly loved the buttons on the mood board, and added the Epoxy filled wood buttons from Cocoa Vanilla Studio because of this.

Lisa Marie Watling (South Africa)
I absolutely LOVED this colour!!

Michelle Van Oudtshoorn (New Zealand)
Loved working with this gorgeous colour. Have used stamping and sprays in the background, and layered paper and flowers, plus fussy cut the feathers. This is my gorgeous niece.
