Good Life by Flóra Farkas

I often hand stitch on my layouts so I know the time and effort involved which is why I am so enamored with this new layout by Design Team member Flóra Farkas!
Hi ladies! It’s Flóra back today and I am sharing my latest scrapbook layout created with the Pick-Me-Up collection and Heart Lines Background cut file designed by Paige. A few days ago we were in Venice for the famous Carnival. It was fantastic experience. At home I was searching for materials to document our photos and I was so happy that Pick-Me-Up perfectly matched my theme.
I used Paper 24 as my background. I collected seven embroidery threads with matching colors and the fun started: I hand stitched the Heart Lines Background cut file. I spent many hours stitching this stunning pattern and it was definitely worth it.

I wanted to keep my layout simple, so I placed a 4x6” photo in the middle and created two clusters on each side. I placed only pinkish, purple, and orange elements. I love all the gold foil on the embellishments and the different elegant frames everywhere. They really echo the pomp of Venice .

On the right I layered Ephemera Die Cuts on my photo to cover and hide tourists in the background. Why would you need photoshop if you have embellishments, right, haha? Also added Chipboard ThickersChipboard StickersPuffy Stickers, and cardstock Stickers. I really love the small phrase labels from the Stickers, they are recurring elements on my layouts.

On the left I made a smaller cluster with similar concepts as before. To finish I adhered gold sequins from the Haberdashery Multi-Pack. The decorations turned out heavy but this resonates perfectly with the big ornate costumes. Thanks for stopping by!
