The lovely colour palette and paper prints of Miss Betty had me totally swooning this month. A truly lovely collection! Today I will share how I created my layout featuring lots of paper layers and some die cut flowers. I’ve prepared a process video for you all but before we begin though, let me show you my completed work-
There were so many pretty papers to choose from with the choice of floral,wood grain and fabric print just to name a few.It made my background paper choice hard to decide on!
To begin my layout I cut some length from my backing paper THREAD (reversed). This is probably the only element of my layout that I used precise measurements. I began by cutting 1″ (2.5cm) from top and bottom of my page.Keep both strips, and proceed to cut another 1cm (10mm) from both top and bottom again.Both these smaller strips can be discarded.
Next I cut two 2″ (5cm) strips from ‘SEWN’ .
From here it was a matter of reconstructing my backing paper. I had distressed some edges a little to give texture before doing so.
As you will see in my video I have incorporated three different papers through the middle of my layout. I did not use specific measurements for these and preferred to go by cutting by eye and what fitted best. Once I had backed my photo and laid everything in place I lightly marked everything with pencil so I could get it back in place after using some stamps in the background.This can be a really helpful tip for work where you include mixed media of some form.
Here is a look at my full process video.I hope you enjoy.
I was super happy with the layered element my paper flowers added to my layout, and the wooden flourish button were perfect as a cute centre. The extra leaves I punched also give a nice extra texture too.
