Floral and Leaf Layout by Anita Bownds

Sunday, August 2, 2020

Hi crafty friends, Anita Bownds here sharing today a sweet light layout using Bloom Street and Paige's cut files! It’s probably no surprise to you that I love flowers and making them along with lots of foliage. I took this photo of a rose that had popped open and totally loved how the colors of the petals went from a yellow to pink in the layers.
I pulled out all the pretty patterned papers from the Bloom Street collection that would complement the photo. I started by cutting out the Flower Wreath cut file from white cardstock and the Layered Flower from the pink and yellow watercolor patterned paper in the 12x12 Paper Pad. Then I cut out the Leaf using a green patterned paper from 12x12 Paper Pad and Paper 04 for the foliage.
I adhered the Flower Wreath to the center of the white cardstock and machine stitched it in place. I then started layering and putting my flowers together and adhering them down on two sides of the wreath. Then I tucked the foliage around the flowers and started building the layers around the wreath.
I stamped on vellum with the butterfly and floral stamps in the Acrylic Stamps and heat embossed with white embossing powder to add just underneath my flowers to add a more texture along with bent up butterflies to add dimension.
I then added patterned papers behind my photo, layering them adding touches of pink and yellow. I created a tag using one of the papers from 2x2 Paper Pads for my title. I used the Puffy Word Stickers at the bottom of my photo and a sticker from the Cardstock Stickers at the top of my photo.
Happy crafting!
