Hello, Pink Paislee friends. Enza here and I’m so excited to share my very first layout with the gorgeous Horizon collection by Paige Evans. I love colorful papers and the ones in this collection are just amazing; the perfect combination of soft and bright, with the most beautiful patterns. Paper 03 is one of my favorites, so I decided to make it the star of my page.
Colorful patterned paper can be intimidating, especially if used as a base for your layout. One of the ways that works best for me in making a busy background work is with cut files. The cut file I used for this page allowed me to incorporate lots of colors and patterns without becoming overwhelming. The delicate scalloped border gives a romantic feel to the page, while the colors make it fun and playful.
I kept adding layers to my background; I adhered another paper with scalloped edges to the center of the cut file and a smaller layer cut from the same Paper 03 I used for the background on top of it, just to create continuity and repeat the design. Foam adhesive was used in between layers to achieve dimension.
To bring in more of the same colors, I fussy cut all the frames from Paper 18 and arranged them behind the photo. Before doing that, I trimmed the sentiments off and adhered some of them under the layers to form a frame.
Once that cluster was ready, I simply arranged lots of colorful flowers around it – I think I may have used the whole pack! I couldn’t resist 😉 They are lovely.
A few fussy cut butterflies from Paper 07 finished the layout! That’s all for today, friends. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you are inspired to create a colorful layout with the gorgeous Horizon collection!
