An Easter Layout With 'Abundant'

Today's post is an Easter-themed layout made with the 'Abundant' collection by Authentique.  The photo is of my son & the Easter bunny taken on Easter 2017.  It's one of the cutest photos I have of my son & had been wanting to scrap it for some time.  The 'Abundant' collection provided that opportunity--plus it took me back to where I started with scrapbooking--which are good ol' fashioned layouts.

I hadn't done a layout in a long time.  It felt refreshing to create one again.  I added many bits & bobs, embellishments  & Easter themed tidbits to decorate my page.  In my stash, I had this mini nest complete with little eggs inside.  I also used several fabric & mulberry flowers in colors that added a bit of 'pop' to my page.  The orange star-shaped fabric flower is from my Etsy shop, 'The Midnight Kraft Desk'.

The base of the page was made by tearing the designer paper diagonally.  I ripped the paper with my hands in order to make the tear look as 'natural' as possible.  I then distressed & inked the edges.  The ink was a pearlescent dark brown ink that added a bit of shimmer to the edges.  Peeking out from underneath is an 8" inch white doily.  

The designer paper was then rolled up & is held in place with a dab of hot glue.

There's a bit of tulle tucked underneath the mini nest & as part of my journaling tag that 'softens' the look & feel of the layout.

Something else that I like to do is create these rolled up embellishments to further decorate my page. It's a way to add something different to a layout & also to use up any leftover scraps.

All of my layouts have some sort of journaling within them.  I tend to figure out unique or different ways of storing the journaling.  For this layout, I opted to store my journaling in a small kraft envelope that is also part of the layouts' base.

The banner seen here was fussy cut from one of the 'Abundant' papers & adhered with pop dots in order to give it some dimension.

The splatters were made with black liquid ink from my stash & some jute string was added to add a bit of visual flow to the page.
