Hello Cocoa Vanilla fans! It’s Kylie back with you all today with another layout created with the ‘Daydream’ collection. For todays layout I am making a feature of hearts, sequins and flowers. My favourites! It’s so easy to create such soft and pretty pages with this collection and for something a little different I wanted to create some layered paper flowers.
To begin I cut some flowers using some lovely layered flower cut files from Neat and Crafty Cutz. Once they were all cut out, I pinched, folded and adhered them together to create lovely ruffled, dimensional blooms. I glued a few of the sequins from the sequin mix into the centre of some for a little extra sparkle and used the paper roses in the centre of others. For my background I chose the paper ‘SWEET SERENITY’ and cut down a piece of the ‘OVER THE RAINBOW’ paper to 18cm x 9cm, adhering it over the top.
My photos were printed smaller and adhered down the left side of my page with foam adhesive so they would sit up from the page and not become lost amongst all those blooms.Next I began positioning the flowers so they appeared to be cascading down the page around my photos. When I was happy with the balance I tucked in some of the foliage I cut out to fill the spaces between the flowers.
To complete my page I added some of the gorgeous fabric hearts and a large title from the die cut pack. I get asked a lot about storing a layout with a lot of dimension, like I have created with my paper flowers. I still add them to my albums without them becoming flattened too much or I hang them in my craft studio. You don’t necessarily have to fold your paper blooms too much either to be able to achieve a lovely dimension about them.
So that you can see exactly how my layout came together I have filmed a short process video for you that you can watch below:
Happy scrapping friends!
