These Days | Julie Taylor
Hello Magpies, Julie back with you today sharing a layout made using an older collection, These Days by Cocoa Vanilla Studio. A collection with lovely soft colours of duck egg blue, pale pink, soft mustard yellow & a sage green. These are not my normal go to colours but I thought I’d challenge myself & get out my comfort zone!!!
Picture Perfect Moments
I first made a mixed media paper using some watercolour cardstock & applying Distress Oxide inks in Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass & Tea Dye, spritzing with water & allowing them to run around the page. once dry I splattered with the same colours & added it to the top of some white cardstock.
I took paper ‘wall of fame’ & fussy cut out a few of the frames, I added my photo into one & used the others as layering pieces, along with some die cut tags, border punched pieces, fussy cut flowers & die cut ephemera & adding them horizontally across the page.
I added 2 tags, pointing downwards, to lead the eye to the bottom of the page where I’ve added the die cut of the mother & child.
I’m glad I challenged myself to use these softer colours & how the layout turned out.
Until next time,
