Hello it’s Melissa here and I’m back to share another layout that I made with the gorgeous ‘DAYDREAM’ collection!! Have I mentioned how beautiful the colours are in this collection?! I decided to feature several of the patterned papers in the ‘6×8 PAPER STACK’, and one of my favourite ways to do this is to use a background cut file. I went with one with lots of hearts so that I could scrap this darling photo of my two oldest girls with the layouts they created with the amazing International Scrapbooking Day digital kit that Zoe created.
I fussy cut one of the floral clusters from ‘GARDEN VARIETY’ and featured it at the bottom of my photo. The doily is from my stash and adds a soft and pretty layer between the photo and the cut file.
I made my background with some watercolour splatters in coordinating colours, I love that it changes my background from plain white, but isn’t overpowering. I used two different sized brushes to get larger and smaller splatters. I’m also thrilled to get one of the ‘FLAIR BUTTONS’ onto my page!! I thought the ‘Choose Joy’ sentiment was perfect.
I made my title from the ‘DIE CUT TITLES’ which I love using because sometimes coming up with a title when you scrap as much as I do is challenging to say the least! I added a sticker from the ‘ACCESSORY STICKERS’ which was a perfect subtitle. I was also so happy to put one of the ‘PUFFY HEARTS’ hearts on my layout!! They are super adorable, and the corduroy texture and slight shimmer is beautiful!
I wrote my journalling on one of the smaller cut apart sheets from the 6×6 version of ‘HAPPY PLACE’.
You can watch my process in the video below, and I also include a detailed look at fussy cutting the floral cluster.
Thanks so much
