Hooray! By Cristina Sales
Hi beautiful Simple Stories friends, Cristina here with you today to show you a new project I made with a brand new collection Magical Birthday collection. To celebrate the birthday of my dear Aunt. I wanted to remember this day with a pic of the beautiful bouquet of flowers that I had given her. The bouquet had the perfect colors to use with this amazing collection and I am very happy with the way that it turned out.
I chose some of the patterned papers from the Magical Birthday collection kit and cut several strips from each in different sizes. I then overlapped them by crossing them at a point that I sewed with my sewing machine. I chose a white card on which I spread pink and fuchsia acrylic using the stencil from the same collection. I let the paint dry and then I glued the bunch of paper strips on the colored background.
Under some strips I added thick double-sided tape to give movement and I then completed with the decoration.
I chose some elements that reminded me of the reason that I used this beautiful photo. I used chipboards, die-cuts and stickers. I just love these amazing designs and shiny and bright colors for memory keeping! I really enjoyed creating this bouquet of flowers with paper strips and simulating the flowers with the stencil. This collection is truly wonderful and full of many designs for every occasion. The colors are perfectly mixed together.
This is my project and I hope you are inspired by it. Please don’t forget to leave us a comment below and tell us which is your own idea on how to use these collections. Thank you so much for joining me today and see you to the next post.
