Bloom - DT layout for Paige Evans

Hi lovelies,

I'm stopping by to share a new layout I've created for the Paige Evans Design Team with the gorgeous new Bloom Street collection!

Another photo I've had lying around my desk since last summer finally found its page ha! I often use black and white photos on my layouts so I don't have to worry about matching colors, but I won't turn a photo into black and white if the colors are important, for instance, it's a photo of flowers, like here! I'm super happy that I could finally scrap this picture!

I chose this lovely Doily Corner cut file (Design ID: 301137) and cut it from white card stock. I then backed it with various patterned papers in the middle, then some parts of the outer petals I left as is because I liked the rainbow striped background peeking through. I glued down the cut file, except for the big petals - I like a bit of dimension!

Since the background is pretty busy, I kept everything else simple. I cropped my photo and printed it in a circle shape. I added my title on top and stitched it down so it will stay put! I then added foam adhesive to the back and adhered it to the middle of the doily. 

I tucked some floral die cuts behind the photo and added a flower charm too. I poked two holes in the layout to attach this charm, because it's heavy and I don't trust any glue to keep it in place, ha! I layered a few die cuts and stickers on the right side too. Oh, almost forgot about the sweet bird die cut on one of the petals! I used foam stickers on some of these so they stand out more.

Last but not least, I wrote my journaling along the petals - if that makes sense?! Anyway, you see what I mean hehe!

That's it for today! I hope I could inspire you in one way or another!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
