MWL June Layout | Sun-n-Fun

Hey all, it is the time again where I share with you this week's layout for Made With Love. This month, I challenged myself to work on brighter and bolder colours and revisited my old roots by trying to in-cooperate flowers into my layout.

The layout + close ups...

When it comes to dealing with  bold coloured patterned paper, you can choose to tone down the overall look by layering a white cardstock on top of it, allowing some parts of the original pattern to be seen. 

The follow up is simple. Focus on a few colours from the patterned papers of your choice and be consistent in-cooperating embellishments (of the same colours) into the layout.  In this layout,  I focused on the colours - red, yellow and teal. 

Flower clusters can be tricky. Sometimes, we are so tempted to put more and sometimes we put way less that what is desired. Follow the rule of building a visual triangle and everything will aligned accordingly.

In this case, I focused on two clusters of flowers on the left and the top right while the title at the bottom completed that visual triangle. To create more textures and layers, I layered some Prima flowers beneath the flower die-cuts. 

All supplies are available at Made With Love, Singapore.


Have a good week ahead.
