Never Forget to Smile Layout by Lady Nany

Monday, April 22, 2019

Hello creative friends, it's Lady Nany sharing my first layout with the Horizon collection and Paige's Layered Butterfly cut file.
This project is a self-portrait that synthesizes my current emotional state: free and happy despite the battles. Therefore, everything associated with happiness I represent with colors and the freedom with butterflies. (You can choose the element that best represents them and find a way to recreate this project!). I used the Layered Butterfly cut file and cut it with my Silhouette Curio in Paper 02Paper 04Paper 05Paper 08, and Paper 23. On a base of white cardstock I mixed watercolors (in the colors of my butterfly) forming a burst of movement with a brush. Once dry, I applied heat embossing using Versamark, a flower from the Acrylic Stamps, and white embossing powder by Ranger.

Next I stuck the butterfly with foam tape, also adding it between layers to make sure that the wings are slightly raised. I placed the photo at the same level as the butterfly and began decorating with Floral Die Cuts. I felt that the lower edge lacked compositional elements that reinforce the visual journey of this page. So I tore with my fingers forming a triangle and I completed it with pink Washi Tape on white cardstock. On top of that I placed two flowers and added a extra piece of Washi Tape in blue. I fussy cut the title "Never Forget Smile" from Paper 04 and stuck it with foam tape. Then I stamped the date with black ink and wrote a motivational phrase on the other side.

And that's all friends, I hope you find inspiration in this project to create your own memories. Thank you very much for visiting!
