Hello! Lorilei here today sharing a scrapbook layout focusing on the pretty papers in the gorgeous Wildflower & Honey collection by Vicki Boutin and American Crafts!
We were given the challenge to use papers from the collection, and the Hive and Full Bloom paper caught my eye, so I went with them! Of course, I immediately started fussy cutting the florals from the Full Bloom paper! I also decided to cut the Hive paper into a long strip with bits of the hive coming off the strip. I selected a white background paper and started hatching a plan for the page. I wanted the colour of the full bloom paper to blend into the white, so I reached for the Neutral Art Crayons and started mixing. I ended up using lots of white, a touch of black and then one scribble of the rust coloured Art Crayon made the perfect colour to match the floral tones. I used packaging and splattering on the background to apply the colour. I also added splatters of grey for some interest.
Once my background was dry, I added my strip of hive paper and the individual hive pieces.
I added my photo with a foam backing for dimension and began tucking my fussy cut Full Bloom florals around the photo.
I added the chipboard tassel banner, chipboard sentiment and chipboard bees around the layout, I love the shine of the foil on those pieces, it adds a little touch of glamour! The layout came together rather quickly and using the papers added so much interest and detail!
Thanks so much for joining me today! Be sure to check out the lovely double-sided papers available with Wildflower & Honey. The 12×12 paper pad is a great resource and also included double-sided papers! Have a great day!
