Hello friends! It's Think Spring week at Just Nick. Lee-Anne here today sharing a layout of my daughter and her passion for flowers and gardening. 

I chose the Posie Swag cut file for this layout.

The cut file was cut out on white textured card stock with my electronic cutting machine. As you can see, I hand stitched around the entire design. I'm not going to lie, this took several hours, but I really enjoy hand stitching and find it to be very relaxing. It takes me back to my old cross stitching days before I discovered scrapbooking. 

After the hand stitching was completed, I painted/watercolored the flowers with a water brush and a pink Gelato (Bubble Gum) as well as the leaves and stems with a green Gelato (Lime Green) and then I added the die cut swag on top of a pink water colored background piece of white card stock.To complete the layout, I embellished with some die cuts, enamel dots, paint splatters and some handwritten journaling for more of a personal touch.  

Here are some fussy cut flowers, hearts and my title.

I am really loving the hand stitching trend and am on a stitching binge at the moment. It was fun to create this layout. I hope you enjoy it too.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the Posie Swag cut file and hundreds more digital cut files in the Just Nick shop.  Have a lovely day!



Me & You March 15, 2017 07:00

Hello! Donna here for my first layout the month of March.

I used the cut file Posie Swag on my layout

I deconstructed the cut file again. You will notice I do this a lot of times! For this particular design, I envisioned flowers/vines kind of hanging either at the top or the edges of the layout. 

I played around for a bit and decided to place the cut files as seen in the image

I wanted to make them appear like they're floating so I thought that keeping it white, as is, would work. Adding colors to the cut file was the last thing I did. Well, sort of second to the last thing, because the very last step to my process was slightly brushing pale peach watercolor to the edges of the white background to add a bit of interest aka make it a bit messy lol!

I was aiming for a peachy color for the flowers but I couldn't achieve the right shade. I still like how it turned out. 

I used Pretty Little Studio's Woodland collection.

I hope you liked my page!
