Bloom Layout!

Tina Gale here with my project. This week it's  all about Spring Blooms at sweetsassydiva so I decided to do a layout with the new CTMH Stella papers, stamps, and canvas shapes. It was super quick to pull together using the CTMH Art Philosophy cart and canvas shapes. Let me show you how!

The large scalloped circle was cut with the Art Philosophy cart and then cut a couple inches off one side. If you're creating a two page layout use this piece on the 2nd page to tie them together.

I created the large flower by stamping the full image on colonial white then I stamped the petals using a variety of ink colors. All of the colors are listed below in the details. Just create a good variety and mix them all up for interest. I cut the petals out and then adhered them to the colonial white flower. You can curl them or pop dot them up for even more dimension. The small flower was created with a couple of petals then adding a button.

Add the green swirl canvas shapes around your pics and then add the flowers. Adding a couple of buttons adds interest and dimension to your layout. Of course I inked everything with cocoa ink. It's just not finished until I ink it. ;o)

The layout is very pretty. But I have a question. Has a winner been chosen for the Sophie cartridge? I've been checking everyday and haven't seen anything. I know I probably didn't win but I can dream, can't I? Just wondering.
