The fam – Product focus, flowers and butterflies – Lisa Fonseca

Hi guys,

it’s Lisa here today. Welcome back! This week is flowers and butterflies week and I’m here to share this layout with you. I’m using the February kits.

I need to be honest with you… This is not the first project I made for this blog post… the first one I didn’t like… haha! I still wanted to use it and told myself to stop second guessing all my layouts, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that it wasn’t me… it wasn’t the style I liked… So, I started again, and I’m glad I did, because then I made this layout and I like it a lot better 🙂

So to start this, I used a patterned paper from Pinkfresh Studio that was in the Main kit (also in the Paper kit). It’s a white background with red stripes that end in an ombre effect. I liked the paper but knew that I didn’t want that red color to stand out too much. I prefer pink. So I put white gesso over the whole sheet and then used some pink Shimmerz spray over it.  I also splattered gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine on top.

I dried it with my heat tool.

Then I used flower cutfiles from February and cut them out of white paper. I took another one of the patterned papers, the one with all the butterflies from Maggie Holmes’ new collection Flourish and cut out some butterflies. I also used some of Paige Evans’ rub-ons from her new collection Pick-me-up, which were included in the Embellishment kit, rubbed them on white paper and cut them out.

I arranged everything the way I liked it, creating a bit of a diagonal design.

The picture I used is from my brother, my sister and me. Our mom absolutely wanted a new picture of us three, so they came to my place one afternoon and we took some quick pics in my backyard. I matted it on some project life cards, from the Project Life kit and placed it on that diagonal line.

For my title, I used those gorgeous gold thickers from the Embellishment kit.

I finished the page by adding some chipboard flowers from the Pick-me-up collection and some black splatters. And I was done!

I hope you like the layout. If you do, check out the process video on YouTube and follow me on Instagram. See you next time
