Hi friends, it’s Lisa on the blog today. I created a beautiful wreath using flowers and little pieces from five different collections. I love how it turned out so much that I need to look at it every time I go into my scrap room or scroll through my pictures on my phone. I love colorful pages like this one.
Those of you who already know me surely know that I love using flowers on my layouts. Flowers just make everything look so colorful and fun. I have to say, it’s getting really hard to find more flowers in my collections… I almost used them all. 😉
So to start, like you can imagine, I went through the Oh My Heart, Turn the Page, Pick-Me-Up and Confetti Wishes collections and chose all the patterned papers with flowers. I fussy-cut a bunch out and started placing them in a circular design on my page.
Every time I thought I had enough flowers, I had to go back and cut out some more. I wanted the wreath to look very full. When the flower base was done, I also went through other papers, pieces, and stickers and chose all the little items I wanted to incorporate into the wreath. I want people to look at the wreath and discover new things every time.
I used butterflies from the Turn the Page collection, watermelons from Pick-Me-Up, leaf chipboard stickers, and a parrot puffy sticker from Confetti Wishes. I also thought that a little flamingo would look really cool on the wreath so I created one by paper-piecing and hand-stitching patterned paper and I placed it on my wreath.
I used a picture from our last vacation, matted it on one piece of pink paper, and placed it on the right side of the layout.
As a title, I used Thickers from Turn the Page and Auburn Lane and I also cut out the word “friends” from patterned paper. To finish the page, I splattered some black ink all around the wreath. I hope you like how the layout turned out!
Thank you so much fro stopping by!
