Katty- You are here 🙂
For today’s project I created a 12X12 layout. I began with Jen’s beautiful Scribble Floral Background. I used my silhouette cameo to cut it out. I then took my inexpensive Michaels watercolors and painted the flowers in the pink and purple tones. I colored the leaves in two green tones. As that was drying, I grabbed a 12×12 white sheet of cardstock. I used an Americana stencil with tiny hexagons on it and my new favorite Shimmerz Dazzlers in Lemon Drop from the Spiegelmom Scraps Shop. I created a simple background for my beautiful floral cut file to sit on. I then chose a picture of my adorable niece when she was one month old. I used a piece of patterned paper from the Crate Paper Notes & Things 6×6 paper pad and used that as a simple mat my for my photo. I nestled the photo into the cut file on the lower left hand side.
I scattered some of the beautiful Spiegelmom Scraps Pink Lagoon Sequins in the center of some of the cut file flowers. I used American Crafts Dazzle Cork Thickers for my tittle. as a finishing touch I used Jen’s super cute Flowers and Flutters Cut File. I used two of the adorable butterflies and I painted them with Heidi Swapp color shine in Butter. On top of the bigger butterflies I layered the Flutter Cork Butterflies from the Spiegelmom Scraps Shop. I also backed them with some purple cardstock.
