Louise has created 2 6 x 12 layouts this month using the fabulous Cotton Candy Dreams Range. Louise challenged herself to start using her 6 x 6 pads and this is what she has created. She has created 2 layouts focused on reminding herself about what is important for her to remember in her day to day life.
I love the increasing amount of light here up north! The long winter starts to be over and there’s sunlight and if not that, at least daylight streaming through the windows again! Ah! This is effecting my creatinons as I start to use different colours and have noticed a big increase in my use of flowers in my crafts!
So when thinking about the project I was going to make for this post, I decided to do a flowery layout. I used sweet, pastel colors and a lot of blooms to make a spring-like page with candy-like colors. Please see how the layout was made from the video below.
The layout is about our trip to Berlin a couple of summers ago. While in there, we visited the beautiful Charlottenburg Palace with a lovely Baroque style garden so the flowers seemed really appropriate for this page!
Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a lovely day!

I started this background with a very abstract idea in mind using lots of wet mediums like texture paste, acrylic paint and gesso. Once the background dried i added some stamping and die cut elements along with the element stickers.
I just love playing with my layouts not knowing where they may end up. The fun element of the abstract style really appeals to me.
I find the less thought I give it and the more I enjoy the process, then the more likely I am to like the end result.
I use a sturdy canvas board so it will take all the wet mediums i throw onto it. Give it a go …. it’s very liberating and even when it appears that you’ve created nothing but a hot mess then start to layer some elements on top and you’ll be surprised at how well it all brings it together.
Most of all, have fun!
