Finding my romantic side

I have been sticking to my ‘straight lines’ style a lot again even though I have been wanting to branch out and try some new styles, so I got determined and tried to be all soft & ‘flowery’ if that’s a word? Here’s what I came up with…

I tried layering a lot and making my own flowers.

Idea 26: Make my own flowers.

Idea 27: Paint under the butterfly transparency.

This one (below) I entered in the Scrap the girls monthly comp.

Idea 28: Use 3D foam under some of the letters but not others (as with the sun).

 And this one was a scraplift from a new blog I found by Karola (in Poland).

I made my own flower for this one also using the Retro punch.

Idea 29: Use multiple chipboard wings 

Idea 30: white out the dark background in the photo with paint using a cotton bud and cross-hatch action.
