Hello crafty friends,
I'm stopping by to share my new layout I've made for the Paige Evans Design Team! This is also my first DT project with the super-duper gorgeous Whimsical collection! I have made several layouts just for fun though, which you can see on my Instagram account.
I first fussy cut the entire 12x12 Paper 3, which has these gorgeous flowers on it. I obviously didn't use all of them on this layout, but I thought I'd save some time in the future by fussy cutting all of them out.
I then put my background together. When I made this layout, I only had a couple of Whimsical papers (mostly scraps) left, and because I didn't want to use white card stock for the top of my layout, I added a strip of Take Me Away paper which was a perfect match in color.
I layered some tissue paper behind my photo and played around with arrangements a little bit. Once I settled on this one, I glued down my photo, with one of the big floral elements tucked under it.
I used foam tape to adhere down the other big floral cut out (on the left), just to add some dimension. Plus I wanted to layer it over my photo, and I never glue down my photo completely, only in the middle. I love the movement it creates. For the third cluster of flowers I used some images that were not complete, but by tucking them behind the photo you can't see that. This way I don't waste anything :).
At this point I found my layout utterly boring, with just one focal point in the middle - don't ask, I just didn't like it. So I ended up adding one more flower cluster in the bottom corner (apparently I like to break rules). I also placed my title in this corner.
I love rub-ons, especially those of stitching and small details like that. So I was ecstatic when I saw there are a few stitched images in the rub-on pack! I added some of these here and there. It's kind of hard to see in the full layout photo, but you can see them in the close-ups better!
I also placed 3 fussy cut banners and 3 enamel butterflies on my page. The banners are from Paper 8, which is a paper full of awesome sentiments for all sorts of occasions!
To finish off my layout I wrote my journaling, added my date and splattered some navy ink around my layout.
I hope you like how this page turned out!
Thank you for stopping by today! I wish you a fabulous day!
