Love Floral Layout


Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Hello everyone and welcome back to a new day of inspiration using my brand new Bloom Street collection! I made this page for the Pink Paislee blog so be sure to hop on over there too!

Here is a process video to see how this layout came together from start-to-finish:

To create this layout I started with the B-side of Bloom Street which is a large LOVE title made out of flowers. I was immediately inspired by this paper and knew I wanted to use it as is (almost ;).

I grabbed a craft knife and carefully, partially trimmed around almost every flower and leaf on the paper. It took about three hours to do this because it's very fiddly, but I love the results!

After I had bent up all the flowers and leaves, I trimmed a piece of light blue cardstock to 11" square and used it to back the layout. You can see the blue cardstock peeking out from underneath all the flowers and leaves.

I printed a 2x3" photo at home with my Canon Pro-100 on Canon photo paper, trimmed it leaving a white border for contrast, and added it inside the floral "O" because it's a natural frame shape and perfect place for a picture. I added a floral bouquet Ephemera Die Cut next to the photo and created a subtitle on it to say "This Beautiful Girl" made from the Puffy Word Stickers, the bouquet die cut, and "girl" mini alpha stickers from the 4-Page Sticker Book.

Next I splashed watered down white acrylic paint across the layout and sprinkled on silver sequins from the Mixed Embellishments. For a touch of texture and interest, I used a scalloped border punch on all the edges, backed the scallops with pieces of the floral Paper 03, and stitched them in place using a sewing machine and white thread.

I hope this page inspires you to pick up my new Bloom Street collection! I love documenting everyday moments with it as well as all-things-floral :)
