Hi friends! This week on the blog we’ve been sharing layouts that are focused on seasons and I’ve created a page about my favourite time of year; SPRING! Spring is my favourite time of year. Not only is the weather perfect (well let’s ignore the rain, what I’m really thinking about is the temperature) but it’s also when all the flowers start blooming! I love watching our garden explode with colour during spring.
I couldn’t wait to use Wild at Heart for this page! I’ve had the die-cut ephemera sitting on my desk for some time just waiting for the right page to use them on and I finally found it! Here’s a look at the page I created:
As per my usual style, I kept with a white cardstock background and added snippets of Memento at the top and bottom. I actually work up the old Cameo and cut a window shape using the woodgrain paper (B side of Artisan) and the maroon chevron type pattern for my curtain (B side of Patchwork).
Originally I had planned on going with 4 photo’s and having them beside the window frame (2×2 style) but as I was playing around with I thought it looked a bit crowded so I dropped one photo and put them underneath the frame. The best part about this change is that it opened up a heap of room for that amazing veneer title to sit on top of my window frame! I love veneers and I adore the font of the wood veneers words; it’s one of my all-time favourites!
Once I had the basic layout finalised (title/photo in position) it was onto the fun part – embellishing! This is always my favourite part of the whole process. Getting all those little bits and pieces and seeing how much I can fit onto a page before it starts looking wrong 😉
The whole point of cutting the window frame was so I could use the flowers from the die-cut pack so I used a few foam dots behind those to create a bit of dimension. I also popped a couple of the butterfly die-cuts around my title.
To add a bit of balance on the page I created a small cluster at the bottom right of my photo’s using one of the heart veneers, die-cut and the word stickers.
The enamel dots were the last piece of the puzzle for this page – I love the sparkle they add to the page without distracting you! I also have a habit of tucking them behind photo’s/other embellishments so only parts of them are peeking out.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! What’s your favorite season of the year? I’d love to hear and I hope perhaps this might inspire you to make a page recording it!
Take care, Em xo
