Hello Friends! It’s Anna here and it’s my turn to inspire you with a project created with Cocoa Vanilla Studio collections. This time I left the new “Happiness” line on the side and came back to a little bit older, but still amazing, “Midnight” collection. I am such a big fan of flowers added to this line and soft colors. Pretty combination of dark navy, pink and orange was so inspiring. I was in a mood for die cutting, and I didn’t mind some repetitive job to be done. I spend some time cutting out many hexagons out of “Sunset strip” paper. I knew I wanted to arrange them in the similar color order as they are on the original paper. This is the final result of my efforts:
Such a vivid combination of hexagons needed some calm background. That’s why I decided to use “Moonlight” paper as a base. White color and soft script font works great as a starting point of every colorful project. Each hexagon is mounted with a layer of foam adhesive to add extra dimension to my page.
Flowers cut out from “Sophisticated” paper are my favorite flowers ever. I love how sketchy and whimsical they look. They are quite easy to cut out too. I scattered them around the page. They created such a lovely embellishment clusters highlighting the feminine theme of this page.
Title of my layout is made with word from Die cut titles pack. This is such an amazing product, if you have problems with figuring out clever titles for your pages. I love the font, colors, everything about this product.
Final step of embellishing my page was adding bits and pieces from Ephemera pack and Chipboards pack. Just a little words and simple tabs. I didn’t want to cover too much of my pretty background. I also reached for older products – some glittery enamel dots from “Make a wish” and “Wild at heart” collections. They matched perfectly to this layout. I had so much fun playing with dies and paper creating unique background. Since I got my electronic die cutting machine, simple metal dies got neglected. Rediscovering them was very refreshing to my mojo.
Thank you for stopping by and see you in two weeks.
