Fresh Easter Eggs Layout

Sunday, April 26, 2020

Hi friends! I have a new layout & process video to share with you today using my Bloom Street collection and Easter Egg cut file!
 Watch this process video first if you are a more visual person to see how it came together from start-to-finish:
I started by applying white gesso onto white cardstock to prep it for watercolors. Then I die cut my Easter Egg cut file from it and carefully peeled it off the mat. I watercolored over the flowers and leaves using my favorite sets: Pastel Dreams and Tropicals. I sped up the drying time with a hair dryer so I could continue on :)
For the background I chose the blue-green B-side of Paper 10 which when turned upside down resembles the sky and grass - perfect! I added little dabs of liquid glue onto the backside of the cut file and pressed it onto the page. I wanted the edges of the cut file to lift and bend off the background so that's why I didn't adhere it down 100%.
 I found the photo I wanted to use from last Easter and added it to the bottom right side. To balance the photo, I created the title on the top left corner using a mix of Puffy Vinyl Stickers (Fresh), the mini alphas from the 4-Page Sticker Book (Easter), and Floral Foam Thickers (Eggs).  I framed the title with colorful leaves from the Puffy Vinyl Stickers and the Floral Die Cuts.
I wanted to "ground" the egg so I trimmed two wavy strips from another piece of Paper 10 as well as a piece of white cardstock and fringed them with scissors. I adhered them to the bottom edge of the page. 
Helpful tip: There was a distracting hot pink polka dot bag in the photo, so I covered the majority of it up with a purple Layered Butterfly Sticker. Below the photo I added a cluster of tiny creatures stickers from the 4-Page Sticker Book.
 I wrote my journaling with a white paint pen around the curve of the egg and then added a trio of Floral Die Cuts on the bottom left corner. To finish, I balanced the white pen on the top right by drawing stems and leaves below the flowers on the bottom left.
 I hope you are inspired to scrap your Easter memories with my Bloom Street collection and Easter Egg cut file!

  1. This is absolutely AMAZING! LOVING that egg, the colors, the grass and that ADORABLE photo!

  2. Love the way you water coloured the egg, applying gesso before cutting. I will try that. A really lovely finished layout that I'm going to scraplift. Thank you!
