The Best Day Layout with Anita Bownds

May 1, 2017
Hi there Kaisercrafters
Anita here with you today sharing a shabby chic layout and process video
This collection was just perfect for creating those flower clusters of fussy cut flowers
when I first opened this collection and looked ,I was totally excited to create something cute.
And what better way then a shabby chic hot air balloon
With fussy cut flowers, embossed vellum and clusters of die cuts
I started with my hot air balloon cut file , as I knew I wanted it to be 12 inches in height!
Making it the main focus of the layout I add 2 different patterned papers behind it to give it colour
And used some double sided foam dots to adhere it down


Check out my process video here
Then I started with the clusters of flowers die cut and fussy cut
I also added the floral border sticker at the bottom to add more flowers
Along with stamping the flower stamp from the stamp set and embossing with white embossing powder on vellum
I fussy cut them out and added them under my die cut flowers


I used some of the wood flourishes and tucked them under my flower clusters
The fussy cut flowers I tucked just under the edge of the balloon


I Matted on 2 different patterned papers keeping it minimal but adding colour around the photo
I also add a few butterflies on the balloon near the flower clusters


Here you can see the close up of the vellum and floral sticker how it all blends in giving it a fuller design
