I wasn’t sure I would have a lot of choices from my stash in these colours, however, I went digging and I found this pretty Dear Lizzy pattern paper with red flowers all over it and immediately thought to fussy cut a stack of them out. I also found this chipboard heart embellishment from the depths of my stash and the page was off to a start! As I mentioned, I don’t use a lot of these colours in my day-to-day scrapbooking so I don’t have a stack of embellishments, but reminded myself, you can make a lot from a little if you get creative!! I will add that there was a little bit of Pink in the pattern paper, just a touch, and I thought I’d get away with that!
Next, I pulled out my spray inks, I managed to find a dark blue, a light blue and a perfect shade of yellow. I’m not hugely into mixed media so I just went at it little by little adding little splatters to the centre part of my page. I kept building it up slowly but surely trying to keep it down the centre of the page leaving 3 inches each side (approximately) for white space. Next, I spread the fussy cut flowers out over the splatters, placing them closer together near the centre and spreading out as they went down the page.
Next, I added a few layers of paper under my photo to create a mat and of course added some stitching. I then went about building my flower clusters to the left and right, starting with the largest of the fussy cut flowers, layering them up and I knew I had these super pretty yellow Fantasy Blooms to finish the clusters off which would be a perfect fit. I so love how they pop off the page!
