3 Easy Layouts

Hello everyone!!!
Today I am going to share with you 3 layouts that I completed on the weekend at an all day crop that I attended.  These are very easy layouts .  Feel free to use their designs.
  I die cut the flowers and inked them with a complimentary blue ink.  A large doilie along with pieces of patterned paper for behind the picture.  That is pretty much it for this one.

For the next one I copied a layout that I had done several years ago.  Just changed the papers.  I drew some broken lines around the two inner papers for accent.  I layered different sized strips of various papers below the picture.   One large flower with a few smaller flowers for embellishments.

For this one, I used a scalloped ruler and traced around the outer edge of the yellow paper.  I cut it out then added dots around the outside edges with a black journaling pen.  I traced out the centre piece from an old stencil that I have.  Again I drew broken lines on the outside edges of the striped piece and dots on the outside edges of the centre scalloped piece.  The flower sections were from an ephemera packet.  I glued them down to black cardstock, cut them out leaving a ridge of the cardstock for accent.  Adhered them down using pop dots.  I didn't put a title on it as the plaque she is holding in the picture tells what the picture  is about.

And there you have it.  All of them are very versatile and you can use the design over and over again.
Until next time this is Donna wishing you a relaxing evening and a great week.

Page 4 and 5 of "Beautiful Faces" album

Hello everyone!!!!
I have another 2  pages completed for the "Beautiful Faces" album.
 A few more to go and I should be finished.
For page 4 I covered the page background with patterned paper then cut and added other papers in different sizes using pop dots for each.  I centered the picture in the middle.  Tucked a die cut doilie at the bottom, added a small resin frame with flowers and a loopy bow from cording.  Glass beads were also added around the flowers.  I fell in love with this picture and knew I had to use it.

Below is a closeup.

For page 5 below I covered the page with patterned paper then cut other papers and off set them.  I added lace down the sides of the picture.  I kept it simple by adding 3 flowers on a vine with some small yellow roses and greenery that I cut from an artificial vine I found at the dollar store.  Whenever I find a vine like this, I cut off all the leaves and keep them for future use.  I added a embroidered flower with a yellow rose at the bottom right corner.

Below is a closeup.

And there you have it.  
Until next time this is Donna wishing you a safe and fun-filled long weekend.
