Lovely Layout

By Babi Kind

“Hi Everyone

I’m excited to share with you today my layout with the new and gorgeous Bloom paper collection.



I truly love the floral patterns of this collection and it is now on my top 3 favorite G45 collections. I think it is versatile and can look modern or vintage depending on how you use it.



Since the theme of the month is about “Light Colors”, I decided to replace the traditional pattern paper for a white background with texture.



Tip: You can use one or more acrylic paints along with modeling paste to create a texture that matches the papers and embellishments.



As always, I added a lot of fussy cut flowers to create the layers and to decorate my layout.



Tip: Use Decades Photogenic and a simple stamp to give a final touch and contrast to the background.


I hope you enjoy, have a fun and creative time.” ~Babi
