Frosted Designs Connie October

Hi Everyone!  I decided to do a 2 pager this month for my Frosted Designs post.  I was looking at my pictures and found some treasures. This was our last day at our Camp in 2013. I thought the Kaisercraft Mr Fox  collection was a perfect fit.

I love flowers and lace and I am not afraid to use them on a boys LO.  I may say I am making these pages for my kids but they are for me first. lol

Left page
The prints are busy but I added molding paste and a stencil. I lightly brushed them with ink to be able to see more of the pattern.

Right page
The flower clusters were added on both pages. They mirror each other.

Close up Small cluster and cut out from paper collection.
