Hello and Happy Easter Monday. Its Melissa here! I hope you had a lovely Easter with your loved ones wherever you are in the world. I’m so excited to be working with the amazing Legendary collection, and there was a lot of excitement (from my kids and I) when the courier came to our door!
I decided to challenge myself to scrap an Easter photo with this rad collection, with an extra twist of using a floral cut file ,and to use it to document my son Sam. The cut file is from Confessions of a Paper Addict.
The first thing I did was to pull all of the papers that I thought would work for this cut file, bearing in mind that it has a lot of florals. Often I find that the B-sides are best for backing smaller details on cut files. Cut part sheets are also great for finding extra patterns and colours.
The title word said “Brothers”, but as I only have one son I altered it by cutting off the “s” to make it work for this photo of Sam. The story behind this photo is that although he was a big 12 year old last Easter, he still joined in the Easter hunt and even posed for this photo for the sake of his youngest sisters. If you have kids that are nearly teenagers you’ll know what I mean!!
I love using a patterned paper for a background, and this gorgeous small repeating triangle was perfect. I added some small blue and yellow splatters for some subtle detail. I really wanted the feature of may layout to be the photo and the cut file, so I kept embellishment to a minimum. I added some of the clear stickers to help draw the eye in, and my final touch was to use blue drops on the two flowers that were too small to back with patterned paper.
I hope you enjoyed my Easter layout. Thanks for looking, and I’ll be back later this month.
