Hello Clique Friends It's Valeska here today with a new project. Hope everything is well and thank you for passing by to check some news and get inspired. I have to tell you that I've been inspired by Sue Schubert, a very special The Clique follower and my layout is a scrap lift of hers. Sue submitted her Summer layout for the July Challenge and won! Well, my layout is not a summer one, but she inspired me in many ways. First of all, I was caught by her amazing watercolor background and the layers of papers and die cuts she used behind the photo. Here is Sue´s layout:
And here is mine:
I started my layout doing the watercolor background using colors that match with the papers I choose to document that day. This collection is Nordica from Studio Forty. I also made some splashes with the same paint which gives me the sensation of snowing.
I cut some flowers and leaves, distressed the edges of some cards to make the layers and add more volume and height to my photo, which was in the center of the layout just like Sue's. I used chipboards stickers from the collection, stickers and also dots 3D stickers.
Finally, I added an acrylic word (Gather) by Elle's Studio with foam squares stickers. I absolutely loved this detail.
Hope you enjoy it and I really want to thank Sue to her beautiful inspiration. If you have any doubts or comments, just let me know. I would love to hear and help. Wonderful Holidays for everyone. Valeska
