Citrus Twist Guest Designer - Whimsical Layout


Sunday, November 4, 2018

I'm guest designing for Citrus Twist Kits this month and the November kits include a lot of Whimsical! So excited to share my first page!

I started with the rainbow striped Paper 16 and used a border punch on every color to make scalloped strips. I lightly adhered the strips across the B-side of the aqua sailboats paper from Pick-Me-Up Paper 22 and then machine stitched across the top of each strip using white thread. To add lots of texture I bent up the edges of all the scalloped paper strips.
Next I grabbed two photos of my daughter and overlapped them in the middle. I layered frames from the Whimsical Ephemera Die Cuts underneath and added a Chipboard "Whimsical" Sticker at the bottom for the title. 
Then I had fun picking and choosing embellishments to go across the entire background, placing them color-on-color. So pink clouds over the pink paper strip, blue clouds over the blue paper strips, etc. I love the texture this technique creates! I hope that you are inspired to check out the November Sunshine in My Soul Citrus Twist kits! They are full of color and things to get your creative mojo going! See you again soon!
