Hi Creative Friends,
June is here and it’s time to share another fab challenge at Scrap the Girls. This month we are being inspired by this divine mood board filled with gorgeous florals and bold colours.
and here is my layout!
I am so in love with this mood-board, I think there are so many beautiful things to be inspired by, I actually started the page by pulling out a stack of scraps of pattern paper that fit the theme. I had a lot of papers that weren’t really enough to make a full page with, but I could cut them into 8cm squares and combine them. I also pulled out the Jen Hadfield collection ‘Patio Party’ which has some stunning bold floral patterns in it and the most divine pop of yellow which I pulled from those cute yellow clogs!
I began with a white background to ground all of my patterns and colours and mounted it onto one of the bold patterns from the Jen Hadfield collection. I then went about building up a paper stack of my scraps. I also stitched around the 8cm square pieces for extra detail and also mounted my small photos in coordinating papers.
You can also see here, that I’ve added in a piece of chipboard from my stash, just as another layer. This page is really all about the layers! Layers of pattern paper, layers of embellishments and layers in my photos. Inspired by the mood board and the layers of fabric in the clothes and handbags.
Once I was happy with all my paper layers and the position of my photos, it was time to embellish! I wanted to add to the florals in my pattern paper so I’ve added in a stack of die cuts from the Jen Hadfield die cut pack. I’ve just positioned them in between my layers. I’ve also added in a couple of digital cut file elements; these are from the ‘Caite Floral Set‘ from CUT to YOU. I’ve misted them with some Colour Shimmer Sprays from Colour Blast.
With the two floral clusters sorted, it was time to add in my title. For this, I’ve gone with a pop of black, to draw from the black in the photos as well as the pop of black in the mood board. I found the sticker ‘beautiful’ and just added the word ‘moments’ with some mini alphas.
Lastly, I added in a couple of butterflies and some enamel dots and called it done 🙂
