August Layout by Paige Evans for Cocoa Daisy

Saturday, August 14, 2021

I was so excited to be asked to guest design with the August kits for Cocoa Daisy called Peach Ridge! Here is the first layout I made - I'll share the second one tomorrow so be sure to come back then!

To create this layout, I hand cut a heart from white cardstock and then used it as a template to trace and cut out 9 hearts from the pretty patterned papers as well as 1 photo. To add texture and interest to the hearts I machine stitched around them with white thread and then I arranged the hearts on a cream textured cardstock background in rows of 3, 4, and 3. 

For another element of interest I splashed watered down white acrylic paint across the page. I made the title "AUGUST" with the wood veneer piece on the top center heart. For embellishing, I mainly stuck with a tone-on-tone theme and added blue pieces to the blue heart, peach pieces to the peach heart, so on and so forth until the layout felt complete!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out the monthly kits from Cocoa Daisy!
