Hi, Orange Gearle here with my first post as a Clique Kit ambassador. I'm super excited to share my first layout with you from the April kit! We are focusing a on mixed media this week -- and I love mixed media, so I had extra fun creating this layout!
The Maggie Holmes Flourish collection has so many floral patterns that I thought it would be perfect to document a few of our pretty flowers from last season. It was especially nice to work on this because spring just doesn't want to show it's face in my area, so it was nice to look at pretty flowers even if it's just pictures and papers. I started by adding some Shimmerz Paints to my background, and I focused on the top third of the page.
Then I added some layers behind my photos and placed them in a grid layout -- vertically across the page. Grid layouts are so versatile and fun to embellish.
I used one of the big vellum pieces as my title and cut up one of the cards to add 'life is'. I also fussy cut some vellum butterflies, a few pieces of and added some exclusive flair.
I made a video of my process, if that suits your fancy!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
