This was the one of the last pages I made and honestly my mojo was waning, but I started by watercoloring different flowers on this Craft Market paper by Crate Paper. The paper is just cream with the flowers outlined so I decided to play and see what happened. I had the Paper Add-On because there are so many amazing patterns in the July kit, so I thought if I didn’t like it I would still have an extra.
The paper actually warped a bit from all the water so I decided to fussy cut out the flowers. I really couldn’t bear to cut this other paper from Crate with the all the text in rainbow order. It actually inspired the way everything else came together. I didn’t want to take away from the colors in the paper so I re-printed this photo in black and white and made it really large. I aligned all the colored flowers and leaves with the text and added a couple other embellishments, puffy stickers and wood veneers from the ‘That Was Fun’ Add-On.
I really love the way this page turn out! I didn’t have to cut up that beautiful paper, I got to play with my watercolors and the photo is still the focus. Sometimes, I think the best way to get out of a crafting slump is just to work thru it and let the products speak to you! Thanks for stopping by the Blog today and I hope my struggle has helped inspire you.
