I used the Pink Paislee Memorandum collection for this layout. I was inspired to use it because of the purple color in my daughter's shirt. The purple in this collection matched perfectly! I used the purple patterned paper to cut a large brush stroke and used that as a big base for my photos. I added a bit of floral paper to the bottom and top of the page and then made sure those colors were mixed in to the middle of the design. I went through several layers of gelatos, spray mist and paint to get my title just the right color. I used gelatos to color the die cut flowers and then added some buttons to the centers.
I started out coloring this die cut with different colored gelatos. I didn't like how it looked, so I added a few different colors of spray mist. I didn't like that, either, so I finally painted over it all with some blue acrylic paint. I added pop dots under it since I raised my photos up as well. I love this cut file because it can be used on any type of layout.
I fussy cut a few flowers from the floral paper and added a washi tape heart. I also added splatters in a few different colors and some silver machine stitching.
These flowers turned out so cute, I think. I haven't used buttons in forever! I added some silver thread to the centers for a bit more detail. I love these pretty colors together!
Here's a shot of the bottom of the layout. I added in a few paper layers, a flair button, a washi tape heart and some machine stitching. I like making sure all the colors from the center are represented in the lower and upper parts of the page. Does that make me OCD? :D
You can check out how I put this page together from start to finish if you'd like.... I hope it inspires you in some way!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great day!
