Wild & Free Layout

Hi everyone, It's Gina here today and I am so excited to share with you a new project using the brand new Lovely Day collection!  I have always had a big obsession with watercolors so naturally I fell in love right away with the watercolor background on the B side of the Up and away paper.  I used this paper to create the base of my layout.  Next I used a flower background cut file made by Paige Evans for Studio Calico to cut out my background using my Silhouette Cameo and White cardstock paper.

For my next step I backed my cut file with pieces of the Color Me Pretty patterned paper and placed it behind some of the petals of my background flower cut file (I purposely left most of my petals open to allow the watercolor background base to show through).  Once my cut file was complete I adhered it to my base (watercolor paper).  Next, I chose two small black and white wallet size photos and placed them near the bottom right of my layout.

There are so many wonderful die cuts in this new collection!  I chose a watercolor flower die cut and a hot air balloon die cut and placed them on each side of my photos.  I handcut a tag from patterned paper and placed it behind one of my photos. Next I chose the thicker chipboard phrase sticker that read "Wild and Free" and placed it to the left of my photos.  For my journaling I decided to use the "love you because" adhesive ticket and I added a few words and placed it underneath my photos.

I finished up my page by adding a love die cut, a date stamp, washi tape, a couple of embellishment dots, some simple machine stitching and some white spray mist across my page.
