Hello! Today I have a layout featuring one of my favorite things – flowers! I used Paige’s Folk Art Flower Group (Design ID #271160). You get a lot of bang for your buck with this cut file as it has multiple flowers and leaves!
I decided to use Pick Me Up for my layout. The colors remind me of fall, and the deep pink/red goes beautifully with my photo! I did some customizing with the cut files; I made 4 of the main flowers in 4 consecutively smaller shapes so that I could stack them up and have a dimensional flower. I also cut a large one (approx 5″) for a focal flower. I cut two from pink/red paper (Paper 11), one from navy (Paper 3) and a cheery yellow flower (Paper 7) I cut the different leaves all from the teal paper (Paper 13).
I arranged all my flowers into a design on the page first. I then added the photo and began tucking in the leaves. It seemed easier to add the leaves this way to see where they looked best!. Once I had the flowers and leaves arranged, I decided I needed some paint in the background. I puddled paint around the leaves with a brush and then added some splatters as well! I added rubon flowers, chipboard, and stickers from Pick Me Up for my finishing touch!
