using the Cocoa Vanilla Daydream collection
Daydream Happy Place.
Using pieces from the ephemera pack , the cut apart sheet and the 12x12 pages.
I gutted my first sheet as it only goes to waste under the top sheet and gives me more to play with. The border was about 2" - I used a ruler sat along the edge and a craft knife to do this.
For the next sheet to go on top I used a ruler to tear down to keep it straight but give me the distressed look I wanted. This then went on the border background piece. The gutted piece just makes a lovely frame and I would always use the darkest sheet for this.
My photo which is 4x6 was then mounted on the leftover from my gutted background sheet.
I used one of the pieces from the cut apart sheet for my journal square. I loved the rainbow and added my journaling to this following the curves of the rainbow, love this feature, it adds great interest I feel.
I then added pieces from the ephemera pack - my title, houses, the top rainbow and flowers, all added using a mix of double-sided tape and 3D foam pads to raise where I needed them to. The front house some of the flowers are raised, and the hearts on the journal square.
I finished by adding a few sparkly gems here and there mixed in with the floating flowers, just finishes it off lovely I feel.
