Layout Share: Flourish

I have wanted to make a page about my One Little Word this year. This concept is based on an idea by Ali Edwards. If you missed the post about how I picked my word for this year, you can find it HERE. I picked the word flourish for 2014, and have really been focusing on this word and allowing to just permeate various aspects of my life. When I found this awesome butterfly patterned paper from Studio Calico's new Lemon Lush release, I was so inspired to make a layout about my word. The paper, was a jumping off point for my color scheme, and everything else.

Color Palette: I tried to use the color inspiration below, but the navy just did not jive with so many other light colors I could not make it work, so I switched it out for yellow instead.

Seafoam, Coral, and Lavender, with pops of Gold and Yellow

This layout was so much fun to make. It took a few days to complete, but I had a great time working on it bit by bit while it was snowing outside.

Supplies Used:
  • Sequins-Paper Bakery and stash
  • Puffy stickers-Pinkfresh Studio and Studio Calico
  • Patterned paper-Studio Calico Lemon Lush
  • Cardstock-American Crafts
  • Silhouette Cameo to cut out large circle from patterned paper, could also used a large bowl if you don't have a digital die cutter
  • Wood Veneer-Studio Calico and stash
  • Buttons: October Afternoon and stash
  • Photoshop Elements to type up journaling and print it out
  • Stamp and Brilliance Gold Ink
  • Heidi Swapp Gold Lame Ink
  • Glossy Accents (for sequins and veneer,) American Crafts dot roller adhesive, pop dots, fine tip scissors for fussy cutting out butterflies
  • Embroidery needle and peach floss for hand stitching.
