Using We R Memory Keepers (WRMK)
And the range used in all three LO's are GOOD DAY SUNSHINE

ROOM 1
Image

I painted some white squares to represent the cushions, doodled frames with black pen around them (kinda like the framed photos on the wall behind the couch) and created some lace bows. These Antique Flower Kit (metal flowers) pick up the dark brown in the pic too :P The scallop edged strips are cut from an edging of a 12x12 found here and are held down by little Glitter Brads
Image

Using a lined journal block stamp by inking a part of can give the below effect. I kinda wrap the stamp around my finger and stamp with the middle part.
Image
Products used:
Textured Cardstock Pad- green sheet and white sheet
flower and journal stickers
Anthologie Ribbon
Cottontail Crochet Flowers

ROOM 2
Image

Here I picked up the tan-pink/orange, browns and greeny tones..
Image

Using this orangy scalloped paper
Image

but cut this 1/4 piece out of a 12x12 called Margaret and placed over the top of the dandelions of the 12x12 paper. The smaller piece kinda makes the dandelions a little finer and delicate than the 12x12 ones.
Image

and turn 'Margaret' over and its all coloured leaves just begging to be cut out!!!
Image

Products used:
flower and journal stickers
Scallop-edged strips
Cottontail Crochet Flowers

ROOM 3
Image

I picked up the floral pattern in the cushions (arent they cool!) using Lisa Paper and most of the colours. 'Lisa' is backed by the reverse side of the scalloped 'Lyn'paper Image

Because the chair was hanging... I hung some banners :wink: using blue cardstock and 'Lyn'paper and the words.
Image

The words are cut from 'Lyn' paper
Image

And here are the Cottontail doily flowers with one topped with journal sticker and both with a
Antique metal flower Image
