Hey everyone, its Jess here with you today sharing my very first layout for Cocoa Vanilla! I am so beyond excited to be creating with such beautiful products and am thrilled to bits to be a part of the Cocoa Vanilla family! Anyway without further ado I’m sharing my layout created with the gorgeous Bohemian Dream collection.
When I laid my eyes on the bright, colourful Bohemian Dream collection I just knew it would match perfectly to a photo of my fur baby wearing a flower crown. I started my page by adding some water colour to the Kaleidoscope background paper. I love adding a watercolour ‘ink blot’ behind my layers as I find it really draws the eye to the photo!
I then played around with layering the papers Abundant, Beautiful, Boho Bits and Dreamer with some Die Cut Ephemera flowers, label and Hello Beautiful title. I also added a Chipboard Accent Stickers flower for added dimension. I generally play around with layering for a while, adding and taking away pieces until I’m happy with the look, then I go ahead and stick everything down with foam tape!
One of my favourite things to do to offset my photo ‘cluster’ is to add some strips of paper and embellishments along one of the sides of my background paper. Here I layered the papers Dreamer and Abundant (my absolute fave from the collection) along with some more ephemera flowers, chipboard heart and a word sticker from the Accessory Stickers sheet.
Lastly I added another chipboard heart and an ephemera flag to the top right section of my page.
And there you have it! I hope you are inspired to make something bright, colourful and fun!
