The layout of the page was inspired by this layout that I found on Pinterest. I had intended to have flowers go across the page, like in the inspiration piece, but my natural minimalism took over and I simplified the page :-) Minimalism aside, I think this made the page more balanced, particularly as I wanted to include journalling. Here's what I made:
What I used:
Papers: Papermania "Secret Garden" 12x12, K&Co "Dorset Blocks flat" 12x12, Dark green textured card
Embellishments: Various paper flowers, Anita's Dimensions "Floral Gems", Papermania chipboard elements "Secret Garden", rub-on from scrapbooking kit, die cut watering can and water drop.
Tools and colour: Mini alphabet dies (bought from a friend), Promarkers
- The watering can and water were my little boy's idea :-)
- I bought the watering can as a die cut that had been cut from glossy green card that didn't match my layout and was pointing the wrong way, so I turned it over, coloured it, re-embossed the details and decorated it.
- The die cut numbers for the date are really thin. To apply glue to them I put PVA on my hand and then dabbed them onto the glue using tweezers.
