Live For Today! by Karlla Dauer

Hello Simple Stories Friends! Karlla here with a new project for you. I’m so happy to share this layout with you!

It is a mix of so many things that I love to bring to my work.  

When I work with a collection like "Simple Vintage Cottage Fields", I want to put some mixed media into practice. And I believe it was amazing in this layout. 



For the background I used the "4x6 Elements" paper and added some yellow. I waterproofed the paper with gesso only where I would work with the paint. I loved this detail and how it highlighted all the other elements of the project. 



Still in the background, I chose to use a Chipboard Frame under the photo along with flowers that you can find on the "Cardstock Sticker". I think these details of writing and outlines in black pen are just beautiful!



Tell me how do you not love these butterflies? They were my inspiration for this layout. I love making them in 3D, sewing in the center and lifting the wings. Pages like that, look beautiful in frames. 

Under each butterfly, I added a beautiful matching sticker of each color. You can find these stickers on the "Cardstock Stickers" 




I ripped some edges at the bottom and added the "Beautiful Moments" paper and added a seam to give it some detail. 

I added the title "Lovely" and ended it with a beautiful splash of white acrylic paint. 



I hope you guys enjoyed and were inspired by this layout. Looking forward to seeing what you will create with this collection!

See you next month, 

Xx Karlla.
