Hello sweet friends! Kylie back today sharing a layout I have created featuring the new ‘Wandering Ivy’ collection.I really love all the floral and greenery inclusions to this range and had no trouble finding inspiration to create with it.
Here is a look at my completed layout.I really wanted to take on a Shabby Chic vibe with lots of layering and hints of the greenery showing through…..
For texture, I used my craft knife to cut some slits into my background paper.I then used my scissors to carefully distress the edges a little before adding another paper print behind each slit for contrast.I have folded the opening back a little as well and love the extra little splash of colour this added to my layout also.
Next I set about fussy cutting lots of flowers from the P2433 Blue Fields paper.I made sure to include lots of varying sizes.
I then stamped some vellum with the smaller flower from the clear stamps and embossed them with a mix of silver and white embossing powder.I fussy cut those out as I wanted to add them with my other flowers to break the colour a little and to give extra texture and dimension.I loved how these turned out!
For balance I used the Provincial Flourish die as leaves…..(OMG this die is a new fave by the way!!) I cut them from the P2436 Archives paper.
I also added some vines cut from using the 3D flower die.They may be tiny but they really do add a great effect to your finished project.
Can I now take a moment to talk about the sticker sheet?? When I first saw it I just wanted to use it all!! From decorative lace strips to floral borders.Ugh! The choices! I trimmed down the large floral border and added it in under my image.I then also trim down the vines and added it over my image.
I finished off this cluster with a cute tag from the collectables.
These colours are just amazing!
I hope you have enjoyed reading about my layout today.Until next time,
