Our family had a fabulous Easter Day, as I hope yours did as well, and we ended up taking a group picture which I wanted to document in my layout today.
I decided to use Creative Scrapbooker Magazine's April sketch and the last of the paper from my Floral collection package.
I flipped the sketch around a bit and decided I liked this arrangement for my larger photo. I have a Cricut file that I used to cut the circles and titles. I made it shareable and the link is here if you would like to use it.
Here's a closer look at the title. I used pieces of the Back to Basics collection to create the first couple of layers of it, and then Floral scraps for the rest.
For the embossing on both the title piece, and around the photos, I outlined everything with Glossy Accents, sprinkled it with Blue Island Slush embossing powder and heated it with my glue gun until it bubbled. That gave it a cool, distressed look.
The pretty butterflies are from a file that Lisa Gregory made for us at the Swirlydoos kit club a few years ago. I print them on matte photo paper, fussy cut them, and colour their edges black. I thought this set coordinated nicely with the Floral collection. Lisa still shares her beautiful butterflies on her blog "What a Beautiful Mess". I've also created a link here for the file below that you can download to your computer.
This beautiful succulent was popped up on foam dots to add a little dimension.
*Tip: Sometimes when you get done your page... it doesn't look quite right. In the photo on the left, I didn't like how the circles blended together and didn't look like circles anymore. I took a black marker and outlined the circle, making it darker on the inside and blending it out like a shadow. This gave me back my distinct circles again. While I had the pen out, I went around all the outer edges of the background papers and did a "faux" stitch on them.
There's still a week left in the Wild Whisper April Challenge, share your Easter photos with us in a floral theme and earn a chance to win a double pack of the Floral collection!
