Hi everyone, Sonia here with a layout I’ve created using the gorgeous new Believe paper Collection along with some of the incredibly beautiful new flowers from Manor House Creations.
My inspiration for this layout was from the Ornate Frames which I wanted to group together to make a bit of a mini gallery. As I was using the frames in white (they also come in black), I chose the dark script side of the ‘Butterflies’ paper to help emphasize the fabulous detail in the scroll work:
Products: Papers – Believe Butterflies, Make Believe, Lace & Elements Cards, Flowers: Letters From Paris, Minuettes - pink, Vinette – pink, Vine – Pink, Ornate Frames – Flourish and Gothic, Flexible words – BELIEVE white
I placed foam tape underneath the frames to add dimension to my layout. In order to cut the photo to the correct size, I laid the frame over my untrimmed photo until I was happy with the placement. Using a white pen I traced marks around the outside of the oval frame where I could. I then cut my photo to size cutting just inside the markings I’d made on my photo with the pen.
The centre of my flower cluster was one of the white flowers from the Letters From Paris packs. These are wonderful and soft looking flowers that adds a special touch to your project. The Pink Minuettes add a balance to the cluster and a lovely pop of colour.
I love things to be balanced but not necessarily identical, especially on my flower cluster! On the right hand side I used the gorgeous and very versatile Vinette in Pink but as I didn’t want the other side to be exactly the same, I used a Vine in Pink and trimmed it to the size I needed. Mixing the flowers between the vines helps add interest across your cluster. Don’t be afraid to trim your vines to the size or shape you need and never discard any bits that are left over – they are too beautiful! So keep them to use on another project.
I trimmed some borders off of the Lace paper to create a softer line between the Butterflies and Make Believe papers
Finally my title was made using the new Flexible Words – Believe. These look beautiful by themselves but also mix well with other alphas to create longer titles.
