Carefree | Julie Taylor

Hi Foxy friends, Julie back with you again today, sharing a layout using one of the new perspextives in the store 'Carefree'

I went with a really muted colour palette, for this layout & kept it to just a few colours.

I first laid down some inks, onto white cardstock, using the smooching technique & added some text stamping over that, vertically up the centre. I then drew a large leaf sprig, onto some copy paper & fussy cut it out. I laid it onto my page & pricked all round it & hand stitched giving me a great central element on which to build my page.

I used a border punch, on a few areas to the right & bottom, of my page & added it, at an angle, to some text patterned paper & cut off the top & left edge to get it back to 12x12.

Using Fox die #8 I cut numerous butterflies in inked cardstock, text patterned paper & vellum. I layered some of them & added around my photo cluster as though they were travelling up the page.
