Something of the marvelous

I created this scrapbook page using paper from the  Kaisercraft Fairy Dust Collection. It is such a pretty paper that I wanted to find a photo that was as magical as the illustration and this pretty pansy captured in my garden seemed perfect. I added some pressed violas, washi tape, a metal butterfly embellishment, an applique dragonfly, some hand stitching, and some rhinestone embellishments.

I agree with this quote by Aristotle one hundred percent. Everywhere you look in nature there is something marvelous to be found, something to fill your heart with joy.

I love that pansies continue to bloom throughout  the cold weather, adding colour to the winter garden. Each winter I grow them in pots and tubs outside my studio where it is lovely and sunny. They provide a cheerful welcome to visitors coming through the gate.

I am joining in the Add a Quote challenge over at Try it on Tuesday.

  1. Your pansies are so lovely and the perfect compliment to that magical paper. Your little special touches of hand stitching and that lovely butterfly complete the look. Beautiful layout, Kristah.

  2. What a magical page! The Aristotle quote is so true and you really brought it to life with the pretty fairy and beautiful pansies 😁. I love the addition of the pressed pansies, lace and stitching too – perfect! Your pretty pots of pansies provide a very warm welcome to visitors and I think they may be a place fairies would gather too …lol 😉. Thanks so much for joining us at Try it on Tuesday and wishing you a happy week! J 😊 x
