Take these Moments to Breathe...

Happy Monday to you!  I'm so super excited to share a special project with you today!!!  Quick Quotes and Petaloo have teamed up and its going to be an amazing week as we share our projects! 

We were so very spoiled with this cross promotional partnership with Petaloo! I can’t even begin to say how totally beautiful these flowers are! When I looked at all of those gorgeous colors in the flowers, I wanted to challenge myself to combine them and our Quick Quotes lines.  Here's my project:
I took this photo recently when we were at the apple orchard and fell in love with it.  The quote "Take these moments to breathe in the beauty around you...." was absolutely perfect for this page!

For my project, I used bits of several of our beautiful lines to mix things up! You’ll find some gears layered under my flowers.  I added a bit of burlap because it just seems to work so beautifully with the Cherry Truffle line.
I thought it would be fun to bring out some more yellow, so I dry brushed some acrylic buttercream paint underneath my frosted flowers. To create a bit of a “sun” accent, I layered the larger flower into my big gear. 

I also layered one of the smaller frosted flowers with some Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets diecut and my Petaloo flowers.  Isn't that Petaloo Canterbury Vine Spray in Teal divine?!  It makes me swoon!
