Mandy here, and today I’m sharing a bright and colourful layout featuring two of my favourite Cocoa Vanilla Studio collections… Happiness and Bohemian Dream! This week our design team are going to be sharing projects focusing on the theme of holidays and vacations. I’ve documented a photo of my girls and I, taken when we took a trip to the the beach during the Summer school holidays. I love the way that the gorgeous bright colours in these two collections really complement the photo!
I started with the reverse side of the Bohemian Dream Kaleidoscope patterned paper as my background, and then I added a strip of the purple side of the Abstract patterned paper down the centre of the page. To add some more interest, I also tucked a strip of the Happiness Good Vibes patterned paper underneath so that it’s just peeking out the sides, and I added some extra detail to that paper by using a border punch along the edges of it.
I matted my photo using the reverse side of the Adundant patterned paper, and then I adhered it towards the left hand side of the page, using foam tape for added dimension. Next I fussy cut a couple of the beautiful floral clusters out of the Happiness Botanical Bliss patterned paper, and I tucked these underneath the top left hand corner of the photo. I also tucked a tag from the Happiness sticker sheet under the left hand side of the photo, and I added a flair button to the cluster as well.
To balance out the photo cluster on the left, I added another floral cluster over in the bottom right hand corner of the layout. I tucked it underneath the purple patterned paper, and I also added some extra die cut flowers into the cluster to give it some more depth and dimension.
For my title, I used the Bohemian Dream Chipboard Title Stickers, and because it was a fairly long title, I decided to add this vertically on the page. I love how that looks!
I finished the layout off by adding a couple of little word stickers and a few butterfly stickers, both from the Happiness collection.
Thanks so much for joining me here today! I hope that you enjoyed taking a look at my layout!
Until next time, take care!
