I hope everyone is ready for another fun week. I got to spend some time in my creative world this past weekend, which makes me super HAPPY! Today I'm sharing a mixed media layout I created of my Niece, Austyn.
I fell in love with the Harmony Collection from Authentique the minute I saw it! Expect lots of projects with this line. The paper has a nice weight and texture, and the patterns are soft and pretty! Pairing them with Petaloo's Burlap Blossoms and Butterflies just seemed natural!
I really wanted a WOW factor for this layout. Something dramatic! I used the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® to color the layout's accent pieces, and give life to my die-cuts, flowers and butterflies.
Look at these GORGEOUS flowers I drew with the Peach, Tangerine, Pistachio, and White Gelatos® They really give an element of elegance to this layout, and make my niece appear as though she is sitting in a garden.
I pulled out the Hoppy Flowers & Flower Branch Dies from Die-Namites. They offer the most delicate filler and really help to give this layout depth. I colored the Flowering Branch die with the Pistachio Gelatos® and look at how it went from a flowering branch to an Ivy branch!
I removed "Hoppy" the Cricket from the Hoppy Flowers die and it transformed the die into the perfect corner spray! Just look at how cute "Hoppy" the Cricket is perched in that floral spray in the photo below!
