Florentine 12 Page Workshop

Just finished another multi-page workshop.  This one is made using Close To My Heart's Florentine paper collection, and features the colors Bamboo, Cocoa, Brown Bag, Desert Sand, Colonial White, Creme Brulee, Goldrush, Olive, Garden Green, Twilight.  The designs have a little bit of an elegant / European / Vintage look, but as I worked with them I discovered that they are very versatile.  I even made a "new baby" layout with these papers.

The first layout is a modified version of one of the layouts in the new Idea Book.  I loved that layout on page 50 of the book so much that I decided to use a version of it and add a facing page in the workshop.  The second layout is the same design that I used for my granddaughter's gymnastics pictures.  Another one that I really liked and thought it would work well in the workshop.
