My Zen Garden and Baby Nettie Flower Tutorial

Aaahh, been busy the entire week and oh my, June is saying good-bye...time sure flies! Many events took place throughout the month and I am pleased to say I have completed some missions even though I fail some of the listed things to do; aaahhh, can postpone to July! Anyway, today I would like to present a layout of my daughter's zen garden. Woo hoo, sounds cool huh!
This ultimate layout is carefully designed for my tutorial assignment at Let's Scrap on June 22. I have created my flower named Baby Nettie. Here's the layout...

This layout is an interpretation from a double pages sketch by Cheri O'Neil. I used the left page for my layout.

The fun part is decorating the matting with flower sequins although it's pretty time consuming but it gives me a chance to relax my mind and 'create' my upcoming layout!

Some close-ups:
The title is printed and fussy cut!


I just adore the sequins!

I have to share my dear friend Kay Wallace's comment over at Let's Scrap regarding this layout:
"I love the seriousness and determination on Anis' face, Asmah! I also love the garden of flowers that you have created here as mini embellishments for all your shapes! And, of course, those handmade perky petunias are particularly pretty! ;-)"
Thank you Kay for your lovely comment! Very much appreciated!

Last but not least, I would like to share my Baby Nettie Flower Tutorial. Please enjoy and hoping you will find time to try it out!

...here's my tutorial...





Thank you for visiting today! Have a flowery weekend!
Hugs!
