Hey girls, finally got todays layout uploaded and now I can show off the prettiness that is my latest layout!! I am so in love with this one and how it turned out. I have always been inspired to create a dream catcher layout, ever since I saw the adorable HeyElsie create hers over on her youtube channel.
So I decided to raid Pinterest and I found the most beautiful mixed media layout with all these amazing layers and the most important element, a dream catcher. You can check out this amazing layout and all its beautiful layers by Elena Martynova. I am having trouble finding the original post of the dream catcher layout but here is a link to her blog if you want to check out more of her amazing creations here.
The one thing that is really inspiring me lately is how far I have come with all my layering and coordinating of colours and patterns. The Felicity Jane Happy Day kit is bursting with beautiful colours and really do help with constructing the perfect layouts.
This layout was really different for me. It was a lot of layers, a lot of gesso and a lot of die cuts!! I am absolutely loving my Silhouette Cameo and all the different shapes and creations I have been able to get. I love collecting different shapes and patterns and even creating my own cut files.
As much as this layout is full of layers and patterns, there are also some really light bright white spaces as well. Adding in texture with twine was a new experience for me on layouts. To this degree anyway. I wrapped the twine around the dream catcher and also as the strings that hang the feathers from the base of the catcher. I chose a basic white and white and gold twine so that it didn't stand out too much. Another white on white combination that I just love.
Once I placed the feathers on top of the layers of patterned paper, of doilies and tulle, I just melted as I looked at all the dimension and colour that just blurred together in a beautiful combination. With all the layers, I thought this layout would be quite heavy, but with all the light colours and the gesso, this layout is still dreamy and soft and just beautiful.
I hope you loved this layout as much as I do. I am thinking of framing it and putting it up on my gallery wall that is still in its planning stages but we will get there eventually.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank all the lovely ladies that have wrote messages of support and love over the past couple of days with my announcement of the Felicity Jane Creative Team. It warms my heart each and every time I read a message from you. Thank you all so so much.
Love you guys,
