Hello! It’s me, Natalie, back with my second design team project for January. For this layout. I used the gorgeous Autumn Beauty collection to scrap a photo of my daughter taken a few years ago while we were out shopping. She’d just bought a cute umbrella that was bright pink and had panda eyes and ears! The Autumn Beauty paper I chose as my background had a bright pink flower in it that perfectly complemented the umbrella.
As I was gathering all the pieces for this layout, I had the idea to take my craft knife and cut around the outline of the pink flower and green leaves and tuck my photo underneath it, so it looked as if it were nestling amongst the flowers. I’d never tried this before, but it worked really well. I’m so pleased with how it turned out.
I also fussy-cut around one of the large flowers from another of the Autumn Beauty papers and used this, along with some ephemera pieces, to create a floral cluster around the top right of the photo.
To create a visual triangle and add a sentiment, I positioned a third and final cluster in the top left hand corner of the layout. I also added some enamel shapes and gold splatters as finishing touches.
If you’d like to see this layout come to life, you can watch the process video on YouTube.
Thanks for stopping by!
Love Natalie x
