Hello dear friends! Thanks for stopping by the blog today. It’s Kylie back with you to share a new layout I have completed with the super gorgeous ‘Happiness’ collection. I had taken some recent photos of my girl and wanted to create something fun and florally. I’ve used a sweet birdhouse cut file designed by Paige Evans.
I trimmed 1cm off each edge from some of the MEADOW paper before adhering it over the top of a piece of the BLISS paper to create a framed effect. I then trimmed 1.5cm off each edge of a piece of white card stock and adhered it centred to my page. Using a wide paint brush and some aqua watercolour I added some stripes and random splatters to my background. I felt no need to add Gesso to the background first as I wasn’t going to go crazy with mixed media.Once dry I added a fine hand drawn border with a black marker pen.
Once my cut files were backed I adhered them to my page with some foam squares. This makes them sit up from the background, enabling me to create more dimension within my page.
There are so many lovely floral elements in the ‘Happiness’ die cut pack. I added several to the base of my page to support my photo. I used more foam tape on some, again for dimension. I printed my photo to 3″x 4″and in black and white.With so much colour going on in my page this helps to still draw the eyes attention to the photo, rather than having it lost or blend in amongst it.To finish my page I have added some of the typed phrase stickers from the sticker sheet. There are so many phrase options you can create with these!
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my latest layout today and you can enjoy some scrapping time of your own soon.
Until next time,
