Hello everyone. It’s Anna here and I have a very floral layout for you today. I am still staying in spring mood and once again I reached for “The Bright Side” Collection. Flowers and butterflies are one of my favorite embellishments and I can never have enough of them. I am sure I could count more than 100 layouts with floral elements in my albums. For my today’s project I used a cute picture of my daughters taken 4 years ago.

I have plenty of photos of each of them alone but when it comes to pictures of my girls together, there is always an issue with face look or attitude. Usually one of them doesn’t want to pose with sister and the second one is making silly faces. I snap like 100 photos and only a few are usable. When I rediscovered this dreamy photo, I knew I have to scrap it.

I created mixed media background using mermaid marker and aqua pastels by Jane Davenport. I also added some green, shiny paste called “Sour apple” from Shimmerz applying it through the stencil.

Pretty papers from “The bright side” collection called “Happy feet” and “A good stuff” helped me create whimsical flowers. I used a free cut file from Paper Issues called “You & Me poppy flowers”.

I finished my project by adding bits and pieces from ephemera pack, tags set and this gorgeous crochet flower. With background as busy as mine, you really don’t need much of embellishing.
I recorded a process video for you, so you can follow my creative process.
