Hi everyone! It’s Elodie on the blog today with a new project to share with you. I used the beautiful Whimsical collection to make a colorful layout about my girls with a photo snapped during a winter walk on the beach. I can’t get enough of the bright Whimsical colors! They are perfect to create rainbow projects.
My idea for this page was to make a scalloped background using half paper circles. So I got busy drawing and cutting circles from Paper 06, Paper 10, Paper 11, Paper 13, Paper 14, Paper 15, Paper 18, Paper 20, and Paper 23. I then cut my paper circles in half and lined them up on Paper 24 to create a rainbow.
Next I adhered my black and white photo in the center of the page using foam squares. I embellished it with beautiful Whimsical flowers and shiny star stickers and I tucked a die cut, chipboard stickers, and a cardstock sticker for the title under it. I like how my picture stands out against that rainbow-colored background!
I then moved on to embellishing the background and I adorned my paper scallops with tone-on-tone embellishments. I topped them with fussy cut flowers from Paper 03, die cuts, cardstock stickers, flowers from the floral embellishment pack, and cute enamel shapes. To give even more dimension and depth to my layout, I curved the edges of my paper scallops and adhered some embellies with foam squares. I just love when everything pops from the page!
I also placed some embellishments on the edges of the page to add a fun and playful touch to my layout.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you are inspired to create rainbow-colored layouts and warm up your winter projects with the bright Whimsical collection!
