Hello Spring Layout

Hi there!  Gina here and I am so excited to share this Spring layout with you using the new Hello Spring collection.
Using my Silhouette Cameo and American Crafts white cardstock paper I cut out my background by using a cut file that I found in the Silhouette store.  After my design was cut I gently lifted it from my Silhouette Mat, carefully keeping some of the butterflies attached.  
Next, I swiftly painted watercolors across my design using a paintbrush and art crayons from the Vicki Boutin Mixed Media collection.  I decided on four colors to create a rainbow effect in a horizontal direction, painting each color one at a time.  Then I set it aside to dry.
For my next step I wanted to incorporate several patterned papers from the collection. I placed small pieces of patterned papers behind some of the open butterflies and adhered it to the back side of my cut design.  Once the design was complete, I adhered the whole page to a second sheet of white cardstock paper.
I used my sewing machine to add machine stitching around my design.  Then added a small photo, title, journaling and a few stickers to complete my page.
I hope that you are inspired to scrap your own Spring photos.
