Hello friends! Leigh here, with a brand new collection from 1canoe2!! I love that their collections are known for hand-painted artwork and soft colors. I can always find some floral images to fussy cut from 1canoe2! This new Willow line is no exception!
I created a pocket to tuck in layers and elements, and also divide the layout in half horizontally. The soft pink background gives a soft feel to the page. The colors yellow, aqua, and pink are used to coordinate with the soft summer colors in the photos. The brushstrokes on the bottom paper remind me of ice cream!
The right side of the layout features the title from the One Canoe Two Sticker Book. The fussy cut florals are pointing toward the photos, and so is the girl silhouette. The butterfly is angled in a diagonal to bring your eye back to the photos on the layout. I added lots of layers behind the photos to add interest.
You can make your own tags with the We R Memory Keepers Hole Reinforcer Punch. The strawberry stickers are translucent so they seem to be printed on the background. I added word strip stickers and rose gold enamel dots near the strawberry sticker on the right. The open frame die cut repeats the shape of the two inch by three inch photos. The American Crafts twine adds a different texture for interest.
The left side of the page features a fussy cut floral at the top left. I added a word strip sticker and an enamel dot here also. By looking for a floral that is printed at the edge of the paper, you can create a corner floral with ease. The floral on the far left is tucked into the pocket that covers the bottom half of the layout. I also added another journaling spot to add more story about our family summer. The die cut bird points back to the photos, to lead your eye there as well.
To balance out the layout, I added the journaling die cut in the center, at the dividing line between the pocket and the background. I added florals here to soften the line, and the gem die cut and en example dot. That way, I have three enamel dots in three different areas around the page to lead your eye throughout.
