I just love the colors in this collection! They're so bright and fun. How adorable are the Puffy Stars? I wanted to create the idea of "confetti" with them. I used a few floral die cuts as layers here and added in some blue tangled thread. I also machine stitched through the centers of the three large die cut stars.
I used a few of the floral die cuts here and there, and I popped them up with some foam adhesive. Again, I added some tangled thread for added color & texture along with more Puffy Stars. For my journaling, I printed it out on some vellum. I didn't want to completely cover the background, and writing with a pen over gesso can sometimes be a disaster. This way I can clearly read the text and still see the watercolor background.
Here's another floral die cut, more Puffy Stars and lots of stitching :)
I really love how this turned out. I love that you can still faintly see the dots under the gesso. I also love the texture and interest the stitching creates.
Here's one more close-up of the photo area. I love this picture of my daughter :) I added in a cute black & white arrow die cut here and more tangled thread.
Here's my process video for this layout...I hope you enjoy and gain some inspiration!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
