I started with some white cardstock. I created the large title on my Cameo software using a fun font and then cut it out. I used lots of patterned papers to back the letters and then went over a big portion of the paper with white gesso. I used wtaercolor paints and some Color Shine on the background. I used some floral stickers and a fussy cut floral cluster as layers behind my photos as well as some tissue paper from my stash.
I combined lots of bits & pieces here. Chipboard, brads, sentiment stickers, clear stickers...I love how they all look layered together! I just love these pretty colors, and you know the Simple Stories collections contain a TON of things! I can't wait to use more of them! I added some light blue tangled thread here, and I love the texture it gives.
My journaling fit right inside this little nook here. I created another small cluster under it with a few sentiment stickers and another chipboard piece. I did some random machine stitching around the page as well.
I love this fussy cut piece. You can tell it's not perfect...it's hard to get around those tiny stems and leaves with the scissors! But I love how it turned out.
Here's one more look at the cut out letters. I've said this so many times, but this is a great way to get lots of pattern and color on your layout without it being too busy or overwhelming. You get to incorporate a ton of papers this way, and you get a fun look!
Thanks so much for stopping by today...enjoy your Easter weekend!
