Luscious Layouts with Graphic 45

Maiko Miwa-Secret Garden-layout#1

Hello G45ers,

Today we have two beautiful layouts by Susan Lui and Maiko Miwa. They are so bright and luscious, they will be sure to put a huge smile on your face!

First, let us begin with Susan Lui's gorgeous Secret Garden layout. "Here's a layout I created of a photo we took during our wonderful holiday to Rome last December. I created a 3-dimensional shadow box layout, embellished with lots of lace, muslin, hand-dyed seam binding, crystals flowers to complement the Secret Garden collection. I painted the Graphic 45 Staples Ornate Metal Key Hole and Keys with dabs of white to blend in with the overall look of the layout." ~ Susan Lui

I love the dimension of these spectacular layouts! Sue's concept of creating a shadowbox works wonderfully to showcase the photo. I love all the embellishments! And, Maiko's layout makes me think of a castle wall with a fair maiden peering out the windows. Just so whimsical and magical.
