This Sweet Girl / Paige Evans DT

Hey, friends! It's Friday...yeah!  Today I'm sharing a new layout for the Paige Evans Design Team.  I think it may be my most favorite one yet!  I based this layout around these gorgeous flowers. I used Paige’s new Layered Flower cut file, and it’s just amazing. I used a ton of patterned papers from Pick-Me-UpOh My Heart, and Fancy Free to create them. It’s super easy and fun because you simply choose all the papers you want, cut each flower separately, and then layer them all together. Bending up the edges creates some incredible dimension. I just love how they turned out! I tucked a cute photo in the middle of the flowers and added some mixed media to the rest of the page. I used the Pick-Me-Up Mini Thickers for my title, and I used Distress Oxides inks to add some color to the bottom of the letters.

These really are easy to put together. I added some matching buttons to the centers and they were complete. I sorted through all the Pick-Me-Up embellishments and used color coordinating bits and pieces from the Haberdashery Multi-PackChipboard StickersStickers, and Rub-Ons. I love the tone-on-tone look against the mixed media.

To add color to the background, I first added gesso.  I used Distress Oxides inks  and simply rubbed the ink pad on the paper in a downward motion. I used a few different blues, pinks, and yellows and then spritzed it with water. I held the cardstock up to let all the color drip down the page. It turned out so cool!

Here you can see the beautiful colors and how all the small embellishments match so perfectly.  I even cut a piece of the Cut Apart Vellum Paper to use on the blue section.

These flowers look complicated, but they were super easy to assemble.  It took longer to pick out all the papers to use than it did to put them together.  But just look at the result!  The most amazing dimension ever!

These Mini Thickers were really easy to color.  I just used my ink foam blending tool and a bit of Distress Oxide and smudged the color onto the bottoms of the letters.  This helps them to pop off the page and yet stay subtle at the same time.

Here's one more close-up because I just love it all so much :)

You simply must check out this Layered Flower cut file! It made this layout come together really fast and I love that it allowed me to use so many patterned papers together. I hope this has given you some fun ideas to try on your next layout!  Be sure to check out my process video to see more:
