When we think of layouts showcasing flowers we might think of an explosion of flowers in gorgeous clusters on the page. Not so with this layout by Nic. Nic chose to take the subtle route, with the floral touches adding to the layout design without being too overpowering. Nic started with a plain BasicGrey cardstock base and built layout layers with Little Yellow Bicycle Love Letters papers. She added a fabulous 8x8 Teresa Collins swirl for the contrast punch.
An intricate BasicGrey Indian Summer paper added the floral base for the photo. Originally a darker colour, Nic flipped it to have the white side showing. This floral paper can be cut apart and used as separate flowers but Nic was quite happy with the subtle background it provided. Next were the floral embellishments in the way of Hero Arts plain white flowers and the final touches were several BasicGrey 'Pop's. Pre-layered floral embellishments, just perfect for the finishing touches here.
You just don’t get any more delicious that Sassafras’ Home Made Blossoms – gorgeous little layered die cuts – that Suz has used on this layout. She’s celebrating her daughters seventh birthday with seven things about her and, of course, seven flowers! It’s a fairly simple layout design-wise, made special by the positioning of the flowers and the juxtaposition of the blue and red corners.
And though we are of course saving most of our new layouts for a separate post, a flower article couldn’t go published without a couple of samples of our very exciting news – that Aussie Scrap Source is now distributing for Prima Marketing. Janine Koczwara who we’re proud to have on our design team is also on Prima’s – and so we are thrilled to share here just a small taste of what is to come at Aussie in the form of flowers, fabrics, papers and amazing textures from Prima.
