Graphic 45 - #Beautiful

Hello!

Sharing a layout I created for Graphic 45. This month we were asked to create a mixed media watercoloured project so I chose to create a layout featuring my daughter ready for her formal.

For the layout I chose to use the Communique collection because a lot of the papers in the collection are neutral colour tones making it easy to mix with other colours. I wanted a strong colour so I went with red as I knew it would mash really well with this collection.

'#Beautiful'


 To create my main cluster I fussy cut a lot of pens from the Pen In Hand patterned paper and then just started layering them until I was happy. The background of the cluster was created with watercolour paints and a text stencil.





I love the vibrancy of the red, it is a colour that I just don't use a lot of but for this page I simply love it.

Graphic 45 - Thanks Pocket Tag

Hello!

Quick share today of a little tag card I created using the gorgeous Nature Sketchbook collection by Graphic 45.

Nature Sketchbook is a gorgeous collection. My favourite part about this collection is the butterflies, they are in all colours and sizes. My project today features one of the larger butterflies fussy cut from the papers. Seriously who doesn't love butterflies!

'Thanks'


The thanks tag pulls out from the inside of the double layered tag and has space to write your special message.



There is a TUTORIAL for this little tag, simply click on the tutorial tab at the top of my blog.

Prima - #Pretty

Hello!

Sharing a page I created for this months Make It Prima moodboard. I loved the colours this month but I chose to use a bit of a darker shade of pink as they were a little to pastel for me.

So this is the moodboard..


And this is my interpretation...

'#Pretty'


What inspired me, the colours even though mine are shades darker, the sketch, the texture of the side of the macaroon and those gorgeous bouquets of flowers.
