Present & Wonder - SImple & Sweet Collection

Present & Wonder - SImple & Sweet Collection

So happy to share two new layouts using Simple & Sweet with you today! It is amazing to me how beautifully this collection goes with so many types of photos!  I of course love to make pages about my girl and I chose photos from when she was little, simple and sweet!
My first layout is 8.5x11, I started with a white background and added puddles of paint and splatters.  To ground my photo I added a strip of paper from the Happy Life paper.

I wanted a whimsical feel for this page, I fussy cut a big circle from the Splendid paper to tuck under my photo.  It then gave me the perfect spot to continue scattering embellishments up the page!  I used chipboard, puffy stickers, epoxy stickers and a gorgeous gold foiled heart!

The bottom of the layout is super simple, I added one of the divine chipboard butterflies (LOVE them) an epoxy circle and another gold foil heart.

My 2nd layout features one of my favorite papers from Simple & Sweet - the Fresh Air paper.  There are so many wonderful sentiments included in these strips!

I cut up the entire paper and decided on a color block for my layout.  I mixed my Pinkresh Studio Liquid Watercolors with white paint and using a palette knife I created strips of color across the background.  Once the paint was dry I added a few gold splatters!

After I attached the paper strips I got busy embellishing!  I kept colored embellishments with the coordinating colored paper strips.  To me this creates a full look without being too chaotic!  I finished off the layout with a gold foil XO and stitched through it.
