Rainbows – Cocoa Vanilla Studio – Daydream | Sheena Rowlands
Hi there Magpies Sheena here again x
Today I am sharing with you more layouts featuring Cocoa Vanilla Studio – Daydream which I can honestly say I absolutely love. In my last post I focused on fussy cutting flowers and for this post I am focusing on the rainbows in this wonderful range.
These are a few of my favourite things.
Firstly it makes me very happy that favourite is spelt right in this range so I just had to use the journalling card from the 6×8 pad as my title.
I went through the die cuts and found a couple of frames I liked plus a small rainbow with its surround attached. I used this surround mounted over acetate to make a mini shaker box over the rainbow using some Cocoa Vanilla Studio Daydream sequins – they’ve thought of everything for this range.
I couldn’t leave the other rainbow unembellished so using french knots and more of the sequins I added a little sparkle. The rest of the page came together easily with a little journalling on another card and 4 smaller photos.
For my second page I wanted to find a way to use the beautiful Up In the Clouds patterned paper.
I decided I loved it so much I wanted to keep it whole but add a little detail and texture to it.
So I got out my embroidery threads and found colours similar to this range and started adding french knots, cross stitches , running stitches and a bit of back stitch. In the end every rainbow had a bit of stitching on it, it is rather subtle but I like it.
When it came to adding my photo I didn’t want to cover all my hard work so I concentrated it all in one corner matting my photo on papers from the 6×8 pad. The die cut words made a perfect title and a couple of die cut shapes helped finish it off.
I hope these layouts have inspired you to check out this Cocoa Vanilla Studio – Daydream range. We would love to see what you create with this over on our Facebook group.
There is a process video to go with the layout over on my YouTube channel if you fancy seeing how it came together x
Till next time x
