This week the DT for Scrapbook Nerd has been asked to create projects all about flowers and gardens. So, i pulled the new Maggie Holmes' Sunny Days collection -cause her florals are always some of my favorites- to create this page.
I started by adding a bit of mixed media to the right bottom corner of the layout using VIcki Boutin's Watercolor Markers in Blueberry Pie, while the background dried, I fussy cut the flowers and paper strips from the 12x12 paper pad, and also created a vellum pocket to hold my lines of journal.
I stitched the strips of paper to the right edge of the page, and then used pieces of paper and ephemera from the collection to back and layer the picture.
All the fussy cut florals were then used to create clusters around the picture. A few extra stickers, ephemera pieces and clear stickers were then added to the clusters around the picture. The gold glitter alphas of the collection were then added to create the title for this page.
I love how this turned out, the flowers are a complement to all the layers of paper, while the mixed media creates enough contrast to highlight all the papers and picture in this page. You can find a Layout tutorial in the Scrapbook Nerd Instagram account, and all the materials used in the Scrapbook Nerd shop.
