Buttercream Floral And Black Accents
Welcome back scrappers! Today’s page features some photos taken several years back when California had an incredible super bloom after El Niño rains in January. My husband and I went out to the desert and were completely surrounded by a sea of flowers. With all the rain California has gotten this year, we may get another super bloom this spring!
I started with a piece of off white card stock and layered a cream and white hounds tooth print paper from The Paper Studio’s Affinity stack on one side. I used a piece of white, corrugated paper from 7 Gypsies Junk Journal Goodies pack and some scraps of floral patterned paper to add interest to the background. Silk flowers, buttons and lace add the final touches and continue the floral motif started in the photos.
This layout was inspired by Scrap Our Stash’s January challenge. I used the sketch on the left and rearranged my photos slightly. I actually found in my stash a piece of cardboard similar in shape to the one in the sketch and centered the title on it. In addition to the silk flowers, I used translucent floral punch-outs from Momenta’s Ephemera Collage Pack and burlap flowers by The Paper Studio.
The color palette is inspired by White with 1’s January challenge of Buttercream. This was a unique color to pair with white since there isn’t much contrast. I do like that my photos are so colorful in contrast with the monochromatic background. I also used more black on this layout to add dimension.
That concludes this edition of Scrap Attack. Thanks for stopping by!
