Maggie Holmes Design Team : Wonderful

Hello again! Today I would like to share with you this layout that I created with Maggie's newest collection called Willow Lane. I really love the good mix of pretty and cute illustrations + patterns in this one. This collection is certainly great for many themes, perfect for memory keeping. 

In every of Maggie's collections, I will always browse through anything floral that I can fussy cut. So glad that I managed to find one that I know it would look great on my layout. Just before I started on my fussy cuttings, I primed the white cardstock with some gesso all around. Once that is done, I went ahead with painting gold stripes. It was inspired by the cardigan my youngest was wearing - the stripes and the overall colors in the photos. I chose gold because I wanted something subtle and not go overboard with the rest of the colors. I also splattered some black & gold mist at the corners of the layout. 

When I was done with all the fussy cuttings, I went ahead and composed the layout. I placed the photos somewhere in the middle. Slowly added the fussy cuttings & worked my way from the top to the bottom. I decided to add the floral at the top right just to create a balance. 

Then, I continued to add more elements like stickers all around the layout to give the extra textures I was going for. 

I also added some foam dots at the bottom of my fussy cuttings to create the 3D look all around the layout. I liked that way!

Those clear stickers are just perfect to add onto photographs, don't you think so? Lastly, I layered the layout onto a blue cardstock. I wanted to have more blue to balance up the layout & that sure gave that fun & bold impact to my overall layout! And to complete my layout, I stitched the corners. 

I hope you are inspired to create a layout today! Thank you so much for coming by!
Xoxo Jessy
