Hello all! Today we have Rachel Lowe, one of our guest designers this month, sharing two stunning new layouts! We love what she created with the Strong & Free collection. Rachel is from Australia and she did a great job turning this Canadian collection into some universal projects. From here we will let Rachel take it away!
Hello Wild Whisper friends I am back with my second post showcasing the wonderful Strong & Free collection. This is such a stunning collection in design and colour. So, here is my first layout - The Human Race.
I fell in love with this quote and this is what my layout was inspired by. Firstly I splattered my white background page in black color shine. I have used a geometric leaf cut file from the Silhouette Design Store as a feature of my layout and backed it in the stunning ombre Northern Lights paper.
I then took the floral paper and cut a stunning bloom (JustNick Studio) and positioned these around my photo and journal card. I added some machine sewing too for definition. I fussy cut the floral fox from a journal card (as it is just too cute!) and attached it with foam tape as I did for my photo and the floral blooms.
And here is my second layout - Climb every Mountain
I have fussy cut the floral blooms, moose, fox and deer from the journal cards. I again splattered my white base paper with black color shine and cut two small maple leaves with added machine stitching to the veins for texture. I used these to frame my photo - which is of my two oldest children at the beach on a winters day here in Perth, Australia.
I have used a mountain cut file from the Silhouette Design Store, but this could be easily done by hand. I added stitching along the bottom. I also added a Wild Whisper wood veneer bear
, which I attached with foam tape to add height. The wooden mountain flair is from my stash.
This cut file title went perfectly with the theme I had in mind for my layout and I backed it in the same Northern Lights paper to ensure it stood out.
I love how this layout evolved and I hope you like it too!
Well I have so enjoyed my time as a guest designer for Wild Whisper, playing with their wonderful products, and hopefully creating layouts that inspire others.
Thank you so much to Rachel for being a guest designer this month! We have loved having her share these incredible projects! Make sure you check out her blog
