Scrap Schemes Debut...

There's a new challenge over at Scrap Schemes and it's my first as a DT member! We had to be inspired by this lovely leafy image - and you can find my page below.

I adored the strong monochromatic lines of the leaves on this scheme, and the shapes and form really spoke to me. I've echoed the design with my ribbon and cardstock leaf design on my page, but I've also 'grunged it up' with some vintage style newsprint patterned paper inspired by the black and white of the plates. I've added a touch of chocolate brown flocking in a random manner to tie everything together.
The flocking was adhered to the page using a glue stick - just dab it on (I put some on the bottom left corner of my pic and also all around the perimeter of the page) and then chuck the flockign on top. The trick is to press the flocking into place rather than rubbing - which would smear it all over the place!!
