Favourite Technique: Fabulous You Layout

Hey everyone, it’s Raquel here with you today wrapping up ‘Favourite Technique’ week on the blog. Today I am sharing with you a layout featuring my favourite technique of layering and clustering using my fave things: gorgeous papers and embellishments, cut files, white cardstock, and doilies.

I couldn’t go past the gorgeous Oh My Heart collection for today’s layout. I used white cardstock for my background and a white floral cut file which is free from the Paper Issues store. To back the main flowers and leaves within the cut file I gathered any pink or green toned patterned papers. I also added pops of yellow to the flower buds to add more contrast. I love how the backed floral pieces against the white of the cardstock really brighten up the page.

I love to add layers to my pages and I do this by layering embellishments or patterned papers either within clusters or behind my photo/s. I decided on this page to layer a couple of the patterned papers behind the photo. I love how this just gives the photo a little extra detail. I chose to print my photo in black and white as I knew that this again would really help the colours in my layout pop.

To embellish the page I added some fussy cut florals from Paper 13. I just love how easy these are to cut out and how perfect they are to add a cute little detail to a page. I also added some teeny tiny flowers from Paper 6.

I added a small amount of journaling to my page as I always do, with typewritten journaling cut into strip form. I love how convenient and easy it is to add journaling with a typewriter.

Of course a page of mine isn’t complete without a little machine stitching. I decided to mat my whole layout on the Paper 12 and stitch around the border. To add further detail it is fun to rough up the edges and little too.
