INTERNATIONAL GUEST DESIGNER #12 | WILNA FURSTENBERG

This month's Guest Designer has a very distinct style that is so beautiful and the layout she has produced for this months challenge is no exception.  I just look at it and think WOW! Please welcome Wilna Furstenberg.

Here is Wilna's Layout....



How about some close ups too...




And this is how she did it...
"I created this layout as a memory for my birthday this year. I turned 46 and it's a big thank you prayer to God about His love and care in my life. I used a printable from my Primavera collection (http://iheartstudio.ca/miniclass8) and Used a stencil and molding paste to make the texture on the white background. I waited until it was dry and painted over it with watercolors. Lastly I added the flowers and photo and a tiny floral image at the bottom of the page. I love this sketch and I feel you can make many pages using it! thank you so much for inviting me to play along!"

Thank you Wilna. I know this layout has certainly inspired me. I just love it.
