~You Belong Among the Flowers~
I created this layout of my sweet little niece using the gorgeous Bo Bunny Gabrielle papers and mixture of flowers in the kit...I couldn't help adding a little bit of white paint and a few spritz of Glimmer Mist to the beautiful cream text print of the paper.
That's what I love about this stunning line...It really lends itself to endless creative possibilities...Whether you keep the paper as is, or alter it, I think you'll have a blast playing with it :)
While I left a part of the title untouched, I painted over the gorgeous font for the other portion of the title in order to create a contrast between the letters and my background...I also added some white paint to the papers, flowers and even to the little cherub designs on the beautiful coral patterned paper...
I cut a portion of the title that was beautifully printed on one of the stickers and decided to improvise the rest of the title (you, flowers) with the larger individual letters...I love the way it fills up the space on the layout :)
I used a bit more white paint to cover the darker parts of the flowers, and added soft, white butterflies to complete the garden :)
I loved the colours of my first layout, so I used the scraps I had left over to come up with this card! I love the pale, whitewashed effect these papers take on when all the light colours are paired up...The gorgeous Petaloo flowers look amazing with the Gabrielle collection...Highlighting the soft features of the beautiful papers...
I wanted to create a layout without the coral tones, focusing in on the yellow and teal, since it is one of my favorite color combos :)
I used a few of the Petaloo flowers and covered the darker spots with some white paint...I did the same thing with the letters as they were a coral pink to begin with and I did not want any of that colour showing through on this soft and sunny layout...
You may not be able to see it that well in the picture above, but I used the Prima mask in the kit along with some white paint to create a design right on the patterned paper. Later, as you will see on the layout, I outlined the stenciled image with a brown pen to add some more emphasis to the gorgeous swirls.
~Thinking of You~
Lastly, I used a few more of the glimmered scraps, added in the stunning flower and a cut-out butterfly. To complete the card, I stamped a simple sentiment...
