Scrapbook Sunday with Crafty Collaborations - a new venture!

Hello and Welcome to Handmade by Julia Quinn

Today I'm sharing a Scrapbook page with the Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop - hopefully this will be a monthly event!  

There is no theme for the scrapbook page, so I was able to play with my photos and new goodies. 

I've used the new Nature's Sweetness Suite for my page about our recent camping trip to Lamington National Park on the Gold Coast hinterland.  The background of my page uses 3 different sheets of the Nature's Sweetness specialty designer paper - there are lovely highlights of gold and neutral colours which works well for my nature pictures.  

The botanical stamped images from Lovely & Sweet  and also the Natures Notes stamp sets are perfect and I've coloured them using watercolour pencils and a water painter.

I love the dotty die cut edge - it makes great note paper inspired elements and combined with the gold foil die cute leaves looks really lovely!! Can you see the cute cork rounds?  They add a lovely natural touch too.

On the top left of my page tied through some more of the die cut note edge dots is come of the gold faux leather trim.

The colours I've used for my page are:  Early Espresso page base, Pecan Pie, Copper Clay, Gold Foil and some Crumb Cake ink for sponging the edges.  
It's a really busy scrap book page, but I hope you like it!!

Make sure you keep hopping to see lots of great scrapping inspiration!!
