Hey Lovelies, it's Nae here and I am finally back and creating with my beautiful Felicity Jane goodies after moving house last month. It was so heartbreaking missing out on all the fun the girls had with the Felicity kit, they made some really beautiful creations. Now that I have unpacked my boxes and finally have a working creative space, I am jumping back into creating with the beyond stunning Emeline Kit. This kit just sings with warmth and coziness. So today's layout, we are getting cozy with a very bright white layout.
As soon as I open a Felicity Jane Kit, I just want to grab that floral patterned paper and fussy cut every last flower on it. This month I was a little unsure. The background was darker and I really thought my fussy cutting skills just couldn't make these florals work. I was soooo wrong. Because of the darkness around the edges of my flowers, I decided to really focus on making the rest of the layout really light and white working with texture and layers to create my interest and allow the flowers to really shine.
I am not one to bust out the dimensional adhesives and create layers that way, instead, I prefer to work with my papers and embellishments and lightly layer them, still creating dimension and depth, but not so drastically. I really love this one section of the layout with the beautiful "love you more" cut file from the Felicity Jane store, a beautiful lace doily and my favourite mini white polka dot tulle. There is so much going on, with the flair and the puffy stickers as well, but with it all being white, it just seems to breath and give a lightness to the layout. I love creating these subtle details in my layouts.
In reverse, you can also apply this principal to brightly coloured embellishments. I felt my fussy cut florals were just too flat for the layout and needed a little dimension, so I found the small floral puffy sticker from the puffy sticker sheet and layered them over the top of the fussy cut flowers. I love the tone on tone and the depth, not to mention the layering and the softening the puffy stickers give to the hard edges of my photo.
I hope you all enjoyed this very simple, but in ways complex layout today. If you would like to see how I created it from start to finish, I would love you to check out the process video above. You can see just how much of a transformation this layout really had..
