Licks of Love Layout by Monique Lowe

Thursday, April 25, 2024

Hi creative friends! Monique Lowe here sharing a flower-filled layout featuring Paige's lovely Flower Cluster cut file and a variety of her collections including Blooming WildSplendid, and Wonders.
I wanted to create a fun and colorful layout to document a sweet moment with my fur babies, Athena and Skye. To create my background, I swiped Distress Oxides onto a sheet of white cardstock (previously prepped with clear gesso). Using a wet paintbrush, I dabbed at the ink swipes to loosen and spread the color. Then I layered the color by spritzing Shimmerz Sprays in coordinating shades and left it to dry. I opted to cut the Flower Cluster in various sizes and used black cardstock to give the florals a strongly defined outline. I chose a few bright and bold patterned papers from Paige’s collections to back them. Next, I used three squares from Paper 6 (Splendid), placing these tone-on-tone and diagonally on the mixed media background. I built on these by adding 2 inch squares to each cluster, using both sides of Paper 11 (Blooming Wild). I added my photos to the right of the central cluster, with the title in black Thickers in the middle of my page. Then I embellished the clusters with the cut file florals and leaves and a few flower ephemera pieces from the Wonders collection. Finally, I added in a few unbacked flowers, some acrylic heart pieces, and a chain stitched border.
I loved recalling this funny moment with my fur babies and hope you feel inspired to get creative documenting your memories with the Flower Cluster too!
