Hi there crafty friends, Anita here with you today sharing a sweet layout using the midnight collection there are lots of soft colours in this collection perfect for those girly shabby chic projects..you know me I love adding some flowers and what better way then to make them yourself from the paper in the collection…
I had a basic design idea in mind for my layout, but wanted to make flowers for my layout using moonlight patterned paper and I used papers from the 6×8 paper pad for the leaves. Then i started off using white cardstock
I then cut a few strips of paper from sophisticated and inky depths to lay on the left side of my cardstock just overlapping then to add a cluster of embellishments and to have it going diagonal up the page
I decided on adding more texture and dimension using a @neatncraftycutz scattered hearts background cut file
Adding some hand stitching and backing it with all the things pattered paper so to bring more of that light pink in the layout and draw the eye to the photo..
Then I layered patterned paper behind my photo with papers from the 6×8 paper pad and tucking a few little doilies in the layers then I started clustering the flowers and leaves around the photo along a few accessory stickers . I also add a few more embellishments chipboard pieces and ephemera to the clusters
Add the flair button in the center of my big flower adds a touch of dimension and texture
And to finish of the layout I add a few clear stickers around the layout..
