Hello to everyone at Clique Kits, this is Giorgia from Italy with my third and last project as Guest Designer for the month of March.
I hope you are all doing well in these hard days and I hope that creativity is helping you through them…
Let’s talk about the creative process behind this layout: as soon as I received my kits, I fell in love with one of the patterned paper included in international series “My Brilliant Friend” by Creative Studio kit, the one with all the branches, and I wanted to make it the protagonist of a layout. So I tore it in a half and glued it to a white cardstock that I had previously created with a flower stamp and some color splashes.
One of my favorite technique is fussy cutting, so I cut some branches from the same paper to use as embellishments and layers under the picture, along with die cuts from the same kit.
I must confess an addiction now… I am addicted to sequins! I love them, I collect them and I use them in almost all my projects: you can imagine my happiness when I saw the bag full of sequins included in the kit!
I wanted to make something special with them, so I sewed them on the picture border to create a sort of sparkling frame! I also added some Pinkfresh Studio flatback crystals from this kit to add even more sparkle!
The die cuts frames under the picture are from the international series add-on kit “Lila & Elena” Embellishments by Creative Studio.
In the main kit by Creative Studio you can find a package of lovely recycled newsprint dimensional butterflies with pearl accents: I colored two of them with Distress Oxide to coordinate with colors in the layout and added to the page.
The final touch is sewing all along the border of the layout to add texture (well, machine sewing is another addiction for me, along with sequins. LOL!)
I really loved creating with Clique Kits during this month and I hope you will find inspiration in my projects.
Thanks Gia for having me as Guest Designer representing my beautiful country, Italy!
