You Do Not Find The Happy Life with Paisley Days

Hello,
Karen here with my second layout using the Paisley Days collection.

You Do Not Find

The items I have used are Snow Weave cardstock, 6.5 x 6.5 paper padCollectablesClear Stamps, Posy mini stencil,  Curios, Ink pads in Sea Breeze, Amber, Cotton Candy and Flamingo, Aquamarine rhinestones and Sunshine epoxy stickers.

I started by using a pokey tool to pierce a 3 x 3 grid onto the smooth side of my Snow Weave cardstock. I taped the Posy mini stencil onto the bottom right square and used  Ink pads in Sea Breeze, AmberCotton Candy and Flamingo  and a cotton bud to colour in the flowers and leaves. I repeated this process on the top left square.

Once this was finished I decided to rotate my page 90 degrees so that the stencilled square  were at the top right and bottom left corner. I cut four 3.5 in squares of paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and added to the centre square  of the top and bottom row and right and left square of the middle row. I filled the remaining three squares with my photos, raising them on foam pads.

I then used another piece of paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and the Flower Cluster die to die cut four clusters of flowers which I tucked under the top left and bottom right photo and added to the bottom right corner of my top photo and top left corner of my bottom photo.

I went overboard with the gorgeous Curios, using a whole pack!  These were added in clusters of three to my page along with two stamped butterflies, left over from my previous project.

All that remained was to embellish the squares of paper with pieces from the Collectables pack and 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.  Finishing with the addition of Aquamarine rhinestones and Sunshine epoxy stickers
