Hello, Cheekies! It’s me, Natalie, back with my last design team project for February. I had an absolute blast creating this layout! I started by using my Silhouette Cameo to cut out a tonne of the leaves from the Cheeky Studio ‘Florals’ cut file, and then I painted them with watercolour while they were still stuck to the cutting mat.
While the leaves were drying, I splodged Worn Lipstick Distress Ink on a piece of white cardstock to give the background lots of energy and to give the leaves something to sit on.
Once the leaves were dry, I took them off the cutting mat and glued them down to the background in a wreath shape. I made sure to only glue the base of the leaves so that the tips would stick up a bit and give the layout some dimension.
The photos I scrapped on this layout, are of my children playing in the back garden of the house in which we used to live, and the ephemera pack provided lots of lovely pieces reminiscent of that garden – flowers, birds, an owl and the resident fox who used to steal my tea-towels!
