Karen here with my second post for April. Now I know I say it every month about the collection I am working with and every month it’s true – I really, really love this month’s range – Breathe.
I especially like how so many of the items in this range have the same cute leaf pattern and wanted to focus on that.
I started by cutting the Floral Twilight paper to 6in x 11/5 ins and added to the top of my cardstock, leaving a .25 border at each side and the top.
Next I cut one of the border stickers from the Sticker Book, in half and added both sides at the bottom of my paper.
I then used the Leaves Mini Designer Stencil and a white gel pen to draw the leaf pattern four times at the bottom of my page – moving the stencil down a little each time to give some verity to the pattern.
I used two sheets of paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 Paper Pad to mount my photo and then added a phrase sticker from the Sticker Book under my photo. This was added to the centre of my page above the drawn leaf pattern.
I used a doily, from my own supplies, at the top left of my photo and then built up clusters of embellishments at the top left and bottom right of my photo using stickers, die cuts from the paper pad, collectables, and a Curio. The final touch was to add some Chocolate Pearls to the centre of the small flowers and as ‘berries’ to the sprigs.
This layout came together really quickly and I am busy plotting and planning my next two projects.
Until next time I hope you find the time to be a bit crafty this month.
