Hello Clique Kits fans!!
Hope you all are getting lots of inspiration from all the beautiful projects created with the beautiful Aquarelle Kit. This month’s kit is gorgeous, and it features the beautiful “Wild at Heart” collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio. You want to get your hands on this kit!
I was drawn to all the watercolor floral designs from the collection, and knew that i would be fussy cutting a large number of them for one of my projects. For this layout, I chose to document one of the many pictures of our Mother’s Day weekend by creating a large shaker element, and framing it with flowers and exclusive printables from this month’s Aquarelle main kit. So sit down, and enjoy the video on how this layout came together:
I chose a large picture with lots of negative space for this layout. First I created a shaker element, by stitching together a circle of light pink/coral cardstock, a same size vellum circle, and the outline of the circle (made of white cardstock) together. Before closing the shaker element, a bit of the Sorbet Kit sequin mix was added to the inside of the pocket, especially the large flowers in the sequin mix.
The Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s “Artisan” paper serves as the base for this layout. A little bit of white acrylic paint behind the shaker element helps bring out the colors in the sequin and the flowers that frame the picture.
To frame the picture, and the shaker element, floral designs were cut from the “Patchwork”, “Luscious”, “Memento” papers (all included in the main Aquarelle Kit), and then glued behind the pocket circle and the large picture.
I took advantage of the many exclusive printables included in the Aquarelle kit, as well as the “Fussy Cuts” page to add small clusters around the picture.
The Pinkfresh Studio Alphas included in the Aquarelle kit are so easy to incorporate to all types of projects. Since there is a large white space in the picture, the title was glued straight on the picture right at the larger floral cluster. A small fussy cut butterfly from the “Mariposa” paper completes the title. After adding the journal lines, a few gold ink splatters complete this project. Here is the final layout:
Don’t you just love all the colorful florals in this month’s Aquarelle kit? Oh, I am in love with this kit ( and I think, tears were shed when I fussy cut the papers, they are just too beautiful!!). Remember there is only a few kits left for sale at the Clique Store, so run to the store to get one of the kits.
I am always a comment away if you have questions on how this came together.
See you all soon!!
