Craft for the Craic - August Photo inspiration

This month over at Craft for the Craic the photo below was our inspiration for the challenge. Thanks to Eithne for sharing  her garden with us.   
I started with two rather plain hardback notebooks

And finished up these
For the black one : I used some thin funky foam to form the 'wilderness', it was a first for me as I'd never used it with the die-cut machine, it was very easy to cut. I layered it up putting a repeat cut pattern in cream slightly off set between the layers to show it off, as without it just seemed rather dull. Beneath the die cut - I used some skeleton leaves, The blossom was made up from layered up flowers from my stash. A bit of bling was added to finish it all off

 For the green and purple one : I used re-cycled materials that were die cut. For the flowers I used recycled envelopes - I stitched them together instead of just gluing them, The greenery was cut from an old Christmas card,  the flower box is an old brown paper bag and the trellis came from the dividers that are usually used in A4 folders

As always thanks for dropping by and hope you like this months creations
