WONDERFUL MOMENT | MORE THAN WORDS | GWEN WRUCK

Hi Creative Friends,

Here today to share with you my latest project for Cocoa Vanilla Studio.  I thought for this layout, I’d try and combine something from an older collection with the new MORE THAN WORDS collection.  Zoe always does a fab job of not only giving us something fresh and new but also having it work with what we have and I love that!  I also have to add here that I was itching to use the divine RADIANT paper with those paintbrush strokes on it and in fact, it is the only pattern paper I use for this one!

The next thing I pulled from my stash was the Chipboard Frames from the Wild At Heart collection.  There were quite a few bold patterns in this collection, however, there were also some really lovely watercolour elements and softer tones too.  I pulled the ones I thought the best fit with the colours in the RADIANT paper and set them out on my page.

Now came the fun bit!  I had a heap of candid shots taken of Miss 11 at a family Christmas party last year and whilst there wasn’t really a shot that stood out to me to belong on a page by itself, the shots as a group told of the pure joy she was having at the time.  They were the perfect choice to fill up some of the frames I had pulled for my page.

It took a little bit of juggling to decide which photo should go where; the one photo where she was looking at the camera became my main photo and the others filled in the gaps. With a design element like this, once it is sorted the rest of the page comes together really quickly.

Next was my title, for this I used the Chipboard Sticker pack which included both words “Wonderful” and “moments” – for my title, I simply left off the last ‘S’ to make it “Wonderful Moment”.

I have then added a few other Chipboard pieces including the sentiment “You Make My Heart Sing” and a bunch of chipboard hearts.  I also pulled some flowers and butterflies from the Die Cut Epherma pack.  I love how on one photo it looks like she is looking at the butterfly!

This finished out the page, a nice and quick layout for me which I love!  I am loving seeing everyone’s creations using the new collection, be sure to keep sharing them with us on the Facebook page!

Until next time,

Gwen
