It Is Time To Bloom!
Nathalie with you today with a new super sweet and simple layout featuring the new Simple Stories BLOOM collection. This collection is rich in all positive vibes, a beautiful color palette, and my favorite: florals!!
The b-side of the Sn@p Basics Walnut/Cream dot paper was used as the mat for this layout. Then two large strips of the Happy Times and Today's the Day from the Bloom collection were stitched to the mat.
To bring out a bit of the teal color in the collection, a little bit of mixed media was added to the background, just enough to peek under the picture. The picture was then layered with papers from the collection and glued to the page.
All the florals in the papers of this collection, as well as in the stickers and ephemera pieces made it so easy to create clusters around the picture. A bit of fussy cutting the Happy Times paper florals was all that this page needed to shine.
But the Bloom collection also is packed with beautiful quotes and icons (ephemera and stickers) that can easily be added to your projects, in this case, these helped convey the sentiment of the page.
To finish this page, the chipboard sticker ('BLOOM') was used. The choice to flip the title was made so that it balance the line that the stitched papers form behind the picture.
I think my line, "love how this turned out", would fit this properly, but honestly this was so easy to put together and the results are truly beautiful. The BLOOM collection is perfect to document those enlighting life moments. I cannot wait to see what you create with it!
