twitterpated.


Recently, I had the pleasure of receiving a package of beautiful patterned paper collections from a company in Poland, UHK Gallery. If you're not familiar with this company, allow me to introduce you today to one of those paper lines -- Green Expectations. It was tough to choose which collection to play with first, as so many of them are filled with beautiful, romantic, elegant designs -- so right up my alley! I'm looking forward to posting some additional designs with other collections later in the week. For now, I hope you'll enjoy this peek at Green Expectations.

The layout is based on Chupa's Saturday Sketchbook Challenge #47:


Maybe it's just me, but this sketch reminds me of the bodice of some fancy Victorian-era dress, with that trio of center panels, the buttons, and the scallops and lace trim "waistband," which I can imagine tops off a long and flowing ruffled skirt. (Just me? {grin}) 

I covered the middle green center panel with some stretchy glittery mesh wire ribbon that I found at a nearby Offray ribbon outlet a while back. For the label, I started with Verve's Lovely Marquee die-cut, then layered on a Heart & Swirls Frame die-cut, and then topped the label pair with a glittered heart, a twitterpated sentiment flag (sentiment is from Verve's Twitterpated) and two teeny 2mm turquoise rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.

It's hard to see in the picture, but I stamped the Hearts & Swirls Frame die cut with a coordinating hearts and swirls image from Twitterpated in a light blue ink. Here's a close-up:


Wishing you a fabulous week!
