Hello Cocoa Vanilla family, and welcome back! I have a pretty fun layout for you today featuring the Bohemian Dream collection. I was incredibly inspired by all the bright colors in the collection and i wanted to showcase some of the fun paper patterns.
I started off with a free cutfile from Paige Evans that spells out Glamorous in a large block font. I then cut an offset of the same file from a Bohemian Dream paper – I chose this particular one because there were multiple colors to play off of and it was a small enough print that would work really well behind the cutfile. I chose to offset the backing element from the white paper to add more interest and fun to the layout, and then I added some mixed media to the background in matching colors to jazz up the page.
While my background was drying, I chose to work on my photo cluster. I’m scrapping a photo of myself in my favorite nightgown with a full face of makeup because what’s more glamorous than a bathroom selfie in an oversized nightgown? I backed the paper with vellum and some various papers from the collection and then went to work on embellishing. I used a variety of products for this page, including the ephemera pack, the chipboard stickers and the cardstock accessory stickers. I love the florals in the Bohemian Dream collection so I layered some of the leaf elements with florals and feathers to embellish my photo and then added a large chipboard floral piece and a text banner to complete my embellishing. Once this whole cluster was finished, I glued it down to my cutfile so I had one cohesive piece to work with.
I chose to add a border to my background page so I chose a paper that had a bunch of florals in matching colors and used that as a background. Next, I glued the cutfile down on an angle to my background cardstock using Scotch glue in my Fineline bottle. I loved how different the layout looked with the photo on an angle and it was the perfect touch for the overall energy of this layout. Lastly, I created a cluster for the upper right corner using pieces from the ephemera pack and the chipboard stickers and called this layout done!
I hope you found some inspiration here and enjoyed this page. It was way too much fun to make and I’m obsessed with the finished product. I hope you try something similar with a large title and you have the most fun making your page and telling your story. Till next time, keep it crafty friends.
