Hi CVS friends!

Happy Australia Day! For today’s layout, my focus is the national colors: green and gold. I use gold very often in my projects, but green is not on my most used list. So, leaves and flowers came to the rescue. And I created this page with a picture of my sister and her son, mixing Daydream and Merry & Bright collections.

I used the Merry & Bright Star Bright Paper for my background and glued a white cardstock crooked on top of it, so you can see part of the Star Bright Paper on the left side. Then, I machine stitched two sides of the white cardstock.

Once I had the base, I made some brush strokes with gold metallic paint in the middle of the white cardstock. You can see it peeking through the elements.

With two of the Merry & Bright Pocket Cards, I framed my photo. I chose two with green tones to match my page. I put some foam behind the photo to rise it a little bit and add more dimension.

I took the Oh Christmas Tree Paper from the A5 Paper Stack and some metal dies and cut a bunch of leaves. I created two clusters with yellow flowers and more leaves from the Daydream Die Cut Ephemera.

For my title, I used one of the black foam titles from the Unforgettable collection. I love who it stands out. I put it on top of the picture, so it seems to be floating. Behind it, I placed one of the words from the Daydream Accessory Stickers that say “sweetheart”. So, the title is “Hello sweetheart”.

In the upper right corner, I glued a green Puffy fabric heart with gold metallic thread underneath it. And finally, I scattered some hearts and sequins to add a shiny touch to the page.

I hope you like this layout, and it gives you some inspiration. I could never get tired of using Cocoa Vanilla flowers!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I wish you a wonderful Australia Day!!

See you soon!

Anna xx
