Happy October, friends! Elodie here today to kick off a new month on the Pink Paislee blog. I played with the brand new Whimsical collection and it’s absolutely gorgeous! I’m in love with its pretty colors and patterns and I’m sure you will fall in love with it too!
For my first project with this collection, I made a page using a photo of my girls snapped in Italy last year. I really like the purple in the Whimsical line and I wanted to use this color on my layout. So I went with Paper 08 for my background. How pretty is that purple ombre?
Another favorite of mine from the Whimsical line is Paper 12. I love that fun and colorful pattern! I wanted to include it on my page and went with a chevron design. I bent up my paper chevron a bit for dimension and placed it at the top of the page.
Next I matted the photo with the reverse side of Paper 18 and I adhered it on my chevron with foam squares to make it pop. I also adorned the picture with a tab that I cut in Paper 18 and with puffy stickers. Those clouds and butterflies are just so cute!
For the title, I used pretty rub-ons that I added under the photo and that I paired with another puffy butterfly sticker. I also fussy cut beautiful flowers in Paper 03 and I arranged them on the right side of the photo. I placed Auburn Lane enamel dots in the center of the flowers and topped one of the leaves with typed journaling strips.
Finally, I added cute rub-ons and puffy stickers here and there and my layout was complete. I love how the bright Whimsical colors pop against the purple background!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope this page inspires you to get your hands on the beautiful Whimsical collection!
