For nearly a decade we faithfully visited the Tulip Fest in Woodburn, Oregon but sadly we hadn't made the trek for the past few years (something we finally remedied this year). I wanted to create a special layout capturing the fun we had the last time we attended and I decided creating a beautiful floral grouping with the ephemera flowers from the collection was the perfect way to do this!
To bring my flowers to life and give them a more 3D look, I chose to layer several of the flower die-cuts in the smaller sizes using foam tape. I also inked my edges to make them pop and stand out when stacked together.
I was searching for a way to fit more photos on my page so I chose to string a set of mini Polaroids along the bottom of my layout. My pictures were originally full-sized 4x6 photos which I ruthlessly cropped down into (3) 2" x 2" squares. I like how cropping them put the focus back on my family's cute little faces and left me more room to include fun embellishments. I am in love with the fun triangle paper clips that come with the Photo Garland kit--I often include banner elements on my pages so it's nice to have a fresh way to string them and mix things up!
I hope I've inspired you to pull out some Spring photos and create some floral bouquets of your own! Make sure to swing by the Pebbles blog for a mini tutorial I shared on how I created a quick and easy stitching template for my bumblebee trail.
