I fussy cut lots of the floral clusters and used those as a starting point. I used a floral die cut and cut even more flowers on my Silhouette Cameo on white cardstock. I used most of the Shimmerz colors I picked out to paint them. For the blue flowers, I used Creameez Refresh Mint, Inklingz Me & Blue, Coloringz Well Blue Me Down and Vibez Jeni B Bleu. The pink flowers were painted with Creameez Piggy Pink and Vibez Sweet Heart.
I wanted to create lots of flower layers here, so I did a lot of overlapping and tucking in with petals and leaves. On the background I used the packaging technique and smudge around a lot of the blue paints. I mixed Jeni B Bleu with Refresh Mint for that.
I love how this background turned out. Here you can see a bit of gold. That's Inklingz Miner Miner 49er. I painted some stems with it and also added some splatters. I added a few white foam heart Thickers around the page.
Check out this dimension...it seems like all flowers want to pop off the page. I painted the white flowers while they were still stuck to my Cameo mat. When I pulled them off, the edges curled up. This is fantastic for creating 3D effects. I tucked in a bit of pink thread around the photo as well.
I used a few little bird stickers for added embellishment. I didn't want to go too overboard with extra bits and pieces since the flowers were pretty busy already. My title is a combination of a Bella Blvd chipboard word and some Simple Stories alpha stickers.
One more close-up just because :)
And that's it! I hope you enjoyed this...it was fun to put together and create. It's fun to let the paper inspire your color scheme. Be sure to check out my process video here:
