London | Honey & Spice - Heidi Swapp

I hope that you all had a lovely Valentine's day, however, my layout this week has nothing to do with Valentines!

I have used the Honey & Spice Collection by Heidi Swapp which I hadn't really looked at before, however, when I saw it in real life I thought it was gorgeous! The colours are dark and they complimented the photos taken on a very dreary day in London.

I started with my background - I used a new honeycomb stencil - Fox Cuts #9. This will be a great stencil for so many layouts - I love the tiny detail. I used coloured texture paste and also drew around the stencil with fine liner to give a faded look.

I also repeated this effect with the stencil below my title. The London title was backed with patterned paper before I added on the Hello die-cut. I couldn't resist the new little butterflies in the shop so that had to go on my layout too!

I layered the fussy cut flowers with ephemera and another butterfly - just love the coral colour! I am also a sucker for little arrows, so the new XO arrows are perfect to add to a photo.
