August Kraft Plus Challenge

bamboo + almond trees

Once again Kraft Plus has taken me out of my comfort zone (though I must admit I do like playing with my watercolours). The August challenge is to use trees somehow on your page.  As I don't have a photo linked with this particular memory I decided to challenge myself not to use a photo on this page.  In hindsight I should have added white paint to my texture paste, but otherwise I'm pretty happy with the finished page.  Bring on spring!


  1. This is gorgeous Rachel.Clever creating. Thanks for joining in and sharing your inspirational layout with us at Kraft+. Love that you scrapped the memory without a photo. Love this!!

  2. Your page brings back happy memories of similar Almond trees in my childhood, knocking the almonds down with sticks, and the joy of eating the nuts immediately. Love the way you created the tree and the soft touches of pink; a nod to the blossoms of spring. Gorgeous work. Thanks for joining us at Kraft+!

    1. I'm thrilled that we share that memory Helen, there's nothing like farm life right? xx

  3. Oh wow this is stunning and so elegant, and yes reminds me of spring blossoms.. a fabulous page for this challenge.. thanks for joining in with Kraft+ this month!

  4. You certainly wouldn't know you were out of your comfort zone with this's so beautiful! It is so delicate <3 Thank you for joining us over @ K+ :)
