Hello friends! It’s Kylie back with you all today and I’m SO excited to be sharing my latest layout featuring the new Horizon collection by Paige Evans. With so many beautiful coloured papers to choose from I decided I wanted to have a pink based themed. For my background I selected Paper 02 for its pastel appeal. I then knew I wanted to add in bright bursts of colour in the form of these beautiful layered flowers and leaves. They are a Cut File also designed by Paige which I cut from several varying prints. Here is a little look at my completed work:
I cut the flowers in two different sizes and colour themes. When adhering them together I took the time to curl each petal up slightly, giving them a lovely ruffled texture and dimension. The leaves I gently folded inward and they were added to give balance to my flowers as well as filling any little space. Once I was happy with their position I also added in some of the gorgeous Thickers Chipboard stickers. I simply adore the little bird!
Once I had nestled my photo amongst the blooms I added in a title with the Alpha Thickers. The burst of yellow and blue really help make it stand out. I also used the Puffy Icon and Phrase stickers to add a small sub-title above.
I really like adding journaling to my layouts but have never been a fan of my handwriting, so have done so by typing it. I’ve cut apart each strip before adding them into the bottom corner. I quite like the effect of adding it at different angles and without being too neat about it.
As my layout was coming together I was loving seeing all the layers and dimension it has! The combination of pinks, corals, and blues really supported the theme of my photo nicely.
Once my layout was complete I checked it had good balance and went in and added several more leaves where I felt it was needed. It’s always a good idea to admire your work from a distance when you are checking the completed result. It’s amazing the little details you can pick up that you may of missed. Without even realising until it was complete, I loved how it had an almost tropical vibe.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have enjoyed seeing my new layout and it gives you inspiration.
