Dream & Create - DT layout for Paige Evans

Hello lovelies,

I'm back today with a new layout I've made for the Paige Evans Design Team!

I was bored a while back so I fussy cut every paper in the beautiful new Whimsical collection that could be fussy cut :D. So I may or may not have used all those elements on a bunch of my upcoming projects ha!

This layout started out as a wreath but I'm so tired of wreaths lately, I tried to come up with something different.

Eventually I settled on this idea. I cut one of Paige's cut files, Scalloped Circles Background Small (Design ID: 237220). I only used one of the circles and I removed the inner circle so I had a solid white circle with scalloped edges. I used textured white card stock for this.

I chose a rainbow striped paper for background. From another rainbow paper I hand cut a scallop border and glued it down at the bottom. I added my title on top of this paper - I chose some chipboard words for this. I think I need full packages of just chipboard words in every collection, because I like to use these for titles. I don't like long titles which of course is a problem because there's only so many words one can use. For some reason, lately I prefer small titles too, earlier I would use more big alpha thickers. I guess it keeps changing what we like!

I placed my circle on the background and checked with my photo where I want it to be. Once I was happy with the placement, I glued it down. I added some tissue paper and tags behind my photo and adhered it all to the background. I then started filling up the circle with flowers. Some of them I just glued down with liquid glue, for some, however, I used foam adhesive so they are more dimensional. I added a bunch of matte white enamel dots and a light pink bow. To finish off my page, I wrote my journaling and splattered some copper paint all over the background.

I hope you like how this turned out and I could inspire you in some small way! This layout is very close to my heart, it brings back good memories of happier times. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I'll be back soon with a new layout!

Have an amazing day!
