Hello all !
It’s Sophie here with a grid design layout to share, this time with the lovely “Unforgettable” collection !
The beautiful “Story Teller” patterned paper was my starting point, as I was inspired by the black pocket card on it for my title. That’s what gave me the idea to create a grid.
I separated my layout in four quadrants and stitched a vertical and a horizontal line that crossed in the center of the page with aqua thread to divide my grid. I then applied watercolors in tones that matched my color scheme on each of the four quadrants.
I placed my photo, printed in black and white, on the upper left quadrant. I added many layers behind it; tissue paper, adhesive foam, “Forgive me not” and “Pretty bits” patterned papers. I used a Die Cut Ephemera “Living the Dream” next to my photo and added a beautiful Flair Button.
On the upper right, I added adhesive foam behind the Pocket Card and aqua cardstock. I decorated this section with two beautiful Ephemera labels and butterflies.
On the left lower quadrant, I selected two pieces of patterned papers: “Sprightly” and “Pretty Bits” and attached them with pink baker’s twine together. I added Ephemeras, Enamel Dots and a sticker from the Accessory Stickers.
On the last section of the grid, I used the “Sprightly” and the “Forgive Me Not” papers as my base. I cut out a part of the “Storyteller” paper to write down my journaling and embellished it with flowers, Stickers and Emanel Dots.
Lastly, I created a little floral cluster on the base of the grid, tying everything together. Some of the leaves in the cluster were created with watercolor and fussy cut out of whatercolor paper.
Here are a few other close-ups:
I love the result. Working to decorate one section at a time in a grid design is so fun ! It’s also a great way to use many different patterned papers and embellishments without making it look too busy.
I hope you felt inspired by this page today !
Thank you for passing by !
