When I looked at the colors of my photo I knew straight away that I wanted to use the DIY Home collection as the colors are such a perfect match. I had lots of left-overs which I could use to create the mat under my photo and I loved the quote so I wanted to use that as well:
Next I wanted to include some “String Art” in my layout as I really love the extra dimension this gives. I decided I would do part of my title in a string art-way. Here’re a few photos how I achieved this:
I printed the word “school” on a regular piece of paper, using the “Cocogoose” font, size 120 and placed the print on a sheet of white cardstock (Cocogoose is a free font and can be found HERE):
Using my paper piercer I punched little holes through the printed sheet in my cardstock beneath:
Once I was done I removed the print and with some embroidery thread I hand stitched each letter on the white cardstock, starting with the outline before filling in the rest of the letter:
Here’s the end result. Doesn’t it look great?
Here are a few close-ups of the rest of my layout. The feather, the “xoxo” and the polaroid frame were all created using some of my dies and a die-cutting machine. The feather and the polaroid frame were cut from the DIY Home “Pink Ombre” sheet and the “xoxo” was cut from the “gold dot” sheet.
The flower die-cut comes from the “Warm & Cozy” collection and the word “smile” is a phrase tag from the “Home + Made” collection.
The rest of the title was created with some “gilded” Thickers and next to it I added a few lines of hand written journaling. Last but not least I added some machine stitching and a few paint drops and I was done!
Hope you like and that I've been able to inspire you a little!
