March Layout Inspiration - Joanne Bain

Hi Everyone!!

Joanne here with you today to share 2 layouts, one with a tutorial. Both are created with the totally gorgeous In The Mood collection.

For my first layout I chose to pull the darker colour in the collection and give my main cluster a bit of a colour pop with vibrant red.


To frame my photo I have used the outside hearts from the In The Mood chipboard sheet. To create the pens, I used the pen stamp from the Desk Set stamp set, this was then embossed with Ebony embossing powder.

The small lace flowers were cut from Lace 3B. All chipboard was also embossed with Ebony embossing powder.

The background was created by using a stencil with black gesso and the while nearly dry a sprinkling of Ruby Slippers glitter was applied.

To build up added interest to the cluster I added some of the cream flowers from the Chesterville florals set. I also added some natural cheesecloth to add extra texture and softness to the page.

For my next page I chose to use the softer tones in the collection. I simply do adore this collection it is just so pretty. For this layout I also thought I would do a little step by step tutorial so you may be able to create this one yourself.

'Perfect Moment'

The small Roman clock face was cut in half layered and embossed with the gorgeous Pixie Dust embossing powder. The top half of the clock also had dark chocolate and Ivory embossing powders added.

The small frame behind the photo was coloured with Green Ivory embossing powder. In the background of the page there is a sprinkling of Mauve and Gold Nugget seedlings.

For added interest in the cluster I added some fussy cut flowers cut from the Attracted patterned paper. 

The main feature flower is one of the lighter pink flowers from the Moody Florals set. I removed the centre of the flower and added my own.

The title and the background flourish were both coloured with Dark Chocolate embossing powder.
