Life is Beautiful! by Nathalie DeSousa

Hello Crafty Friends!

Nathalie with you today to share a new layout featuring the new THE SIMPLE LIFE collection. I am in love with this collection, the colors and designs are just sublime and super versatile. Let me show you what I have created:



I started by using by creating my background using the Butterfly Garden stencil, pigment white ink, and acrylic white ink on Gray Color Vibe cardstock. 



While the paint dried, I pulled a few papers from the Collection kit, and 6x8 paper pad to create a paper layered look on the page. The little bit of distress to the edges of the papers help to add dimension and show off all the paper layers.



One of my favorite pieces in each collection is the Chipboard frames. The wreath design in this frame was a contrast to all the lines in the paper layers. I simply glued my photo to the back of the frame and set it on the top right corner of the paper's layers.  



I am combining some of the foam and chipboard stickers to create the title for my page. There are so many beautiful sentiments that it was so easy to construct a title. In addition, I made sure to sprinkle butterflies (from the sticker tablet, ephemera) to each of the clusters in the page.



To balance all the paper layers to the top and right of the pictures frame, I am adding two tags to the bottom of the layers -facing towards the bottom of the page - This helps to elongate the design and helps to bring texture to the layout. Plus, the twine bows remind me of the butterfly wings.



A few extra butterflies and embellishments complete this spread. Have I mentioned, I am totally in love with this collection. Remember to check the new THE SIMPLE LIFE collection, it truly is beautiful!
