Dreaming of Dreams Layout
“Hello G45 fans,
Today I have a cute and whimsical layout featuring the Dreamland collection. This collection is perfect for little ones with magical illustration. To go with the theme of the paper I made a layout filled with clouds and stars.
To start with, cut some cloud shapes in cardstock, make them in varied sizes from big to small. Using them as templates, cut them with pattern papers, and stick both together.
Tip: Use different patterns to cut the clouds in both dark and light colors for interest
To create the background mix modeling paste with metallic gold paint and apply it through star stencil, and while the paste is still wet sprinkle some gold glitter powder.
Tip: Chipboard designs add an elegant look and dimension to your layout, select them according to your theme. Here I chose star-shaped elements and a decorative frame to go with my theme
For the first layer add your main elements and form a basic layout. Here I added the clouds, chipboard shapes, and tiny pieces of scrap pattern papers behind the photo.
Tip: Create a mini composition similar to your main design on the opposite corner to create visual interest.
Now add layers of flowers, die cuts, and fussy cut elements around your composition in a pleasing way.
Tip: Mix white paint with water and splatter all over the layout to more magical look
Thank you for stopping by,
