The majority of the papers I used for this are from the Illustrated Faith She Blooms and Whatever is Lovely collections. I found a rose cut file from the Silhouette Store and used lots of the patterned papers to back the open spots. I know you've seen this technique about a million times, but it never gets old! And the result is always pretty, especially when the colors are this beautiful :) I used a piece of glimmer orange card stock and added some white gesso to it. I used some pink and blue Shimmerz sprays to create that watercolor look on the background.
I added pop dots behind the flowers to create some depth, which always makes an impact on a layout. Here you can see the background work as well. I added in some tangled thread and some enamel dots for added extra pops of color.
I love this Bella chipboard! I used some Shimmerz and gelatos to color it blue and then paired it with some Tiny Text alpha stickers to create the title. I also fussy cut some flowers from the She Blooms paper to layer behind the photos. That chipboard is also from She Blooms.
Here's a good look at the watercolor on the background. I love playing with inks and sprays...I just love the look when it dries! Here are more enamel dots and more fussy cut She Blooms florals.
Here's one more close-up of the die cut and papers. These truly are all my favorite colors together, and I love how they look with a black & white photo. The contrast between them makes each one stand out.
Here is my process video showing how I made this layout from start to finish...I hope you enjoy and draw some inspiration from it in some way :)
As always, thank you so much for visiting my blog. I wish you a very happy weekend!
