I started with an enlarged leaf cut file from the Cocoa Vanilla store. I cut it on white cardstock and then painted it with a few shades of green Shimmerz. On my background, I added lots of white gesso to fade away some of the background pattern and give me a white base. I used some blue, yellow and orange Shimmerz over it. My photo is a perfect match with all the pink and yellow, so I fussy cut a lot of the watercolor flowers to scatter around the picture and leaf cut file. I also used a lot of die cut and vellum flowers from the collection.
Just look at these colors....so stunning! I layered a lot of the flowers in and around the leaf and photo and then added some tangled thread. I used green thread to machine stitch all around the leaf. I love the detail and texture that gives. I layered in a flair button, a sticker and a chipboard arrow.
For my title, I fussy cut "LOVE" from a patterned paper and layered a sentiment sticker over it. I added a strip of foam under the sticker to raise it up and added some yellow thread under it all before gluing it down. My journaling fit nicely right underneath the title. I love those little fussy cut flowers...it's so much fun to create your own embellishments from paper!
I wish I had an entire pack of these vellum flowers...they are just so pretty. I know I sound like a broken record, but I just love these colors together and how the background looks.
More beautiful colors! I layered some tissue paper and patterned paper under my photo as well as some foam.
Here's one more close up of the texture, dimension and detail.
I do have a process video if you'd like to check out how I made this page. I hope you enjoy!
Thank you so much! Have a great day!
