Hello scrapbook friends! Tracy here, and today I have a lovely lotus layout to share. One day while browsing through all of the beautiful chipboard pieces available on the Creative Embellishments website, I came across the Mandala Lotus. I fell in love. When I saw them I knew exactly what photo I wanted to scrapbook with them, and the paper collection that would accompany them perfectly. I just adore how the layout turned out, using a photo of our daughter during her visit to Abu Dhabi. Here are some of the details…

Creative Embellishments Chipboard Used:

Mandala Lotus       Gorgeous Small Border Word Set      Moroccan Lattice Panel       Lotus

I started this project by first painting all of the lotus flower pieces with white paint and a foam stencil brush. I then using another stencil brush and teal ink to add colour to the middle of each mandala lotus and the bottoms of the solid lotus pieces. Then using navy ink, I added colour to the outer sections of the mandala lotuses and solid lotus pieces.

I added colour to the Moroccan Lattice using beige paint and a foam stencil brush.

I added colour to the Gorgeous small word border first using navy ink in the middle, then added a small amount of white paint to the ends, followed by teal ink.

For all of the gorgeous details on how I created this layout you can pop on over to my blog HEREThanks SO much for stopping by!
