It’s Tarrah back with you on the Cocoa Vanilla blog and today I am very excited to be sharing my first project using the stunning brand new Daydream collection! Oh my goodness it is just so beautiful! I think this one might be up there as one of my favourite all time collections from Zoe! So as soon as I received my goodies, I pulled out that amazing rainbow paper and believe me, it has been a very popular paper amongst the design team!
I decided to trim the rainbow paper down so that I could mat it with the darker blue paper and then again with the small black and white spotted paper. I like how the darker blue paper draws out the hearts in the bottom left and also the hat and dress of both of my nieces in the photo. The photo is a recent one of my sister and her gorgeous family on an outing to see a waterfall. I matted the photo with the woodgrain frame from the ephemera pack and also adhered one of the die-cut phrases on top of the photo. I layered half of the large circle die-cut and a paper doily on the left of the photo and tucked in some of the super cute florals and a tab on the right of the photo.
I love the strip of rainbows die-cut so I added that piece to the top of the photo. I chose to create a long title for this layout, choosing ‘You Are My Sunshine’ and splitting some of the title to draw your eye around the page. The ‘You Are My’ part I wanted to arrange in an arch to mimic the rainbow arch and the ‘Sunshine’ part of the title fits perfectly at the bottom of the photo. I did use craft foam underneath the title to give the page some dimension and create a shadow. You can see in the detail photo above the shadow this created in the words.
I chose some more of the gorgeous florals and pulled out one of the cute puffy hearts. I adhered all of these to the left of the photo. I had to add that awesome sun die-cut above the word ‘My’ and I layered one of the flair buttons straight on top. I chose some of the small heart stickers and die-cuts and placed these tone on tone around my layout. To finish off the page, I chose some of the phrases and words from the accessory sticker sheet that were appropriate and placed them around the layout, I also stamped the date stamp that the photo was taken.
Thank you so much for joining me on the Cocoa Vanilla Studio blog today! If you were thinking about purchasing this collection, don’t think any longer!! You NEED this collection. It is just so gorgeous and super super easy to work with. I have already completed almost 3 layouts and I have only had it for a week!
