Hello crafty friends !

 

It’s Sophie with you today and I am so happy to share my very first layout created with the GORGEOUS Daydream collection !

 

 

I went for a rainbow-themed layout, inspired by all the rainbow pages we have on the CVS Facebook group !

 

I started my design by cutting a simple rainbow with my cutting machine on thick white cardstock.

 

I backed each ray of the rainbow with different patterned papers from the collection, namely “Happy Place“, “Sun Shower“, “All Aflutter” and “Sweet Serenity“. I also machine stitched between the rays with white thread.

 

I played with my water-colours to add just a little bit of interest on the white background, mostly around where I had planned to put my photo.

 

I used a photo of Sabrina and our dog to illustrate how lucky they are to have each other in those difficult Covid times. I placed it on one end of the rainbow, added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind it.

 

I cut a big strip of my white background paper on the bottom of the layout, punched a scalloped border and added the beautiful woodgrain patterned paper from Daydream called “Over the Rainbow” underneath the white cardstock.

 

I created a cluster of flowers on the bottom of my photo and tucked a few flowers underneath the scalloped border as well. They all come from the beautiful Die Cut Ephemera pack from the Daydream collection.

 

 

I used the Daydream Die Cut Titles for my “Big Heart” title, and hand wrote my journaling directly on the background.

 

Finally, I hand drew three clouds on which I applied a little bit of water-colour paint. I layered them with white cardstock and adhesive foam to make them stand out over the rainbow.

 

 

Isn’t this collection just AMAZING ?!!? I can’t get enough of everything about it !!

 

I hope you like the end result and that it will give you some ideas to get crafty and play with Daydream !
