Hi everyone! It’s Sue Plumb here with my latest design team project for you. Today I am sharing a mixed media layout I created for my daughter to celebrate her 11th birthday. I used the gorgeous ‘Happiness’ collection for this one, because birthdays are pure happiness – right?!

I started my page with the gorgeous indigo colour on the reverse side of the Botanical Bliss paper as my background. I adore this colour, as well as the random marked pattern of the paper. I wanted to create a contrasting focal area for my page, so used some pale pink acrylic paint that I applied roughly with a silicone spatula.

Once the paint was dry it was time to add some papery layers. I used a variety of pieces – the black and white heart print on the reverse of the So Fresh paper; the gorgeous tiny floral of the Meadow paper; and a little scrap of the Good Vibes paper that I had previously punched some hearts from.

Included in my layers was also a beautiful Cocoa Vanilla floral cut file – this one was from the Colour Me Happy cut file set and was cut from white cardstock. This provided a great contrast against the dark background.

I also added a section of the beautiful wreath design that I had fussy cut from the So Fresh paper, which I tucked under the bottom left corner of my photos over the top of the cut file.

Amongst my layers I tucked in a couple of tickets from the Die Cut Ephemera pack as well as some extra floral pieces; then added a heart, butterfly and some of the small word / phrase stickers from the Accessory Sticker sheet.

Finally, I added three extra tiny blooms from the ephemera pack and a title using the words happy and day from the Cardstock Titles pack and I was done!

I am so happy with how this layout came together, and am still crushing on this stunning range!

Until next time, happy scrapping!
