Hi and hello, welcome back, Jana here with a fun new layout to share. I love to create dimensional things on my Layouts and so I had a look into the Silhouette Store and grabbed a CutFile from a Wreath I really liked. Looked for some patterned Papers and let my Cameo cut aaaaallllll the leaves, and believe me, there was a lot of!
I limited myself to a few with the colors. I wanted to have it almost monochrome…
the Watercolors for the Background, the Wreath and the finishing Elements; all in green and blue tones.
This is what all of leaves looked before I started to create that layout.
I used my favorite Mixed Media Paper for my background, the Foundation paper! I added a LOT of water to it and “kissed” it with color on a piece of plastic.
I love how the paper is handling all the water without getting curled up or any kind of damage.
Look at this; it reminds me of a sky full of clouds or the ocean. I used my heat tool for drying but also grabbed a paper towel to soak up some of the extra colors in the corners.
Once everything was dry and ready to go I started with building the wreath on the background. This took me a while but totally worth the time. I glued the pieces together so that I was able to move it around as one big piece, without having to worry about it falling apart again.
The picture (I changed it a few times during the process) shows my hubby and my little one. I love this photo. But you can also see some of the stamped circles behind the wreath. Have not mentioned it yet, right?! I stamped with the Circle Stamp Set and the Watercolors some circles behind the wreath. I really love how that worked and looks!
On this point I was sure that my page was done! I´ve added Watercolor Stickers, fussy cut some of the Butterflies out (12×12 Paper – Social Butterfly), grabbed some Glitter Foam Hearts and the Word “my” , two pieces from the “All the good Things” Frame pack. Oh and I´ve added a lot splatters too.
But nope, I changed my mind – way too much this time – and added more details and more DIY Elements.
But now I am done and happy with it! Love the pinwheels… I added some of the Enamel Dots from Finishing Embellishments to the middle of each of them and look how pretty they are…
I also have a little Process Video for you to watch – https://youtu.be/csBLDh06KAw
