Sunshine and Happiness Layout by Maija Männistö

Monday, September 21, 2020

Hi friends, Maija Männistö here to share my first DT layout with Go the Scenic Route. Don’t you just love the colors?! I love the bright and crisp tones, they will sure bring joy in the upcoming darker months here in the north!
I just couldn’t resist fussy cutting into all those gorgeous floral papers so I really wanted to create a wreath. I didn’t want any flowers on it so for my cut file I chose Paige's Branches Wreath cut file. I cut it from one of the papers in the 12x12 Paper Pad - the perfect turquoise color! I wanted to add some dimension to the wreath so I used the off cuts as my guides and blotted the paper with pink ink. Then I added pink splashes of color mists. The wreath itself I only glued on from the circle and bent the individual branches up just a little bit for dimension.

For my cluster of flowers I used two of the floral papers from the 12x12 Paper Pad as well as the same one with the bright pink flowers from the 6x8 Paper Pad. I love to be able to add flowers in different sizes. To bring even more fun and colors into the wreath I fussy cut butterflies from a paper in the 12x12 Paper Pad. As the title I used two pieces from the Chipboard Stickers - "sunshine" & "and happiness".

On the opposite side of the wreath I made another cluster with the same flowers. I also added the super cute "wild and free" sticker from the Cardstock Stickers. Around both clusters I added some of the Enamel Dots, which are just the perfect finishing touch to any layout!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, have a lovely and crafty day!
