The Earth Laughs in Flowers Layout by Maija Männistö

Saturday, April 11, 2020

Hi there! Maija Männistö here to share a layout made with Bloom Street and Paige's Flower Bunch cut file. The soft colors of the collection are a perfect match for springtime photos.
Flowers are for sure my favorite things in spring and adding them to layouts is even more fun! I used the Flower Bunch cut file for the main focal point for my layout. I backed it with several different papers from the 12x12 Paper Pad. From the same pad I also chose the background paper with the gorgeous soft tones of pink and purple.

I wanted to add texture onto the background so I used one of Paige’s stencils with modeling paste to create the hearts. And to add even more color I dabbed ink with a blending tool through the stencil. For some dimension I added 3D flowers with the Layered Flower cut file. I used the same papers from the 12x12 Paper Pad that I used to back the flower bunch. And for a finishing touch I added an Enamel Dot in the middle of each flower.

Together with the Layered Butterfly Stickers and sequins from the Mixed Embellishments I created three clusters on the page. Lastly, I backed the photo with papers again from the 12x12 Paper Pad and cut two of them to fun shapes. For the title I chose the gorgeous iridescent foil detailed die cut from the Ephemera Die Cuts.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, remember to live your life in full bloom!
