AB Studio | Never Never Land | Sunshine And Smiles | Kim Ewins

Hello again, Kim here to share with you my layout ‘Sunshine & Smiles’

I have used the fabulous AB Studio Collection ‘Never Never Land’ papers and some AB Studio Chipboard.

Let me show you my layout, then I will describe how I put it together.

{Sunshine & Smiles}

For this layout I started with the AB Studio Never- Never Land – Sheet 6 – Stronger Together. I used this as my base paper. Next, I grabbed the AB Studio Never Never Land – Sheet 8 – I Believe. I then trimmed 2cm from adjoining sides or 1cm from each of the 4 sides.

Taking the ‘ I Believe’ paper, starting about 1/3 of the paper down, I started to tear the paper on the diagonal, leaving the bottom right of the paper in tact. I then distressed the straight sides of the ‘I Believe’ piece and then stuck it in place on my base paper.

Next I added in a little background texture with a stencil and some texture paste, then allowed that to dry. I then decided on where my photo should sit. I trimmed my photo and stuck a piece of cardboard to the back of my photo, and glued it in place.

Next I added some gorgeous lace & stuck that down.Above and below my photo.

My next step was to add the lovely AB Studio Chipboard pieces and once happy with placement, I stuck them down. My main flower cluster follows the torn edge of the AB Studio Never – Never Land – I Believe paper. I then added a selection of flowers and leaves. The flowers are cut from the AB Studio Never – Never Land  Sheet 5 – A Wonderful Day and the leaves are cut from the bonus sheet which comes with the full collection. I also added in a small cluster at the top right of my photo. Also adding in some beautiful flowers from the Prima Darcelle Paper Flowers- Recollections.

I always love a bit of machine stitching, so I decided to run 2 lines of stitching around my project. 1 around the base paper, roughly 1/2 cm in from all sides and the second, around the straight sides of my top (torn) paper.

The next thing I did was to swipe (using the edge of my finger) a little gesso around the outer edge of my photo and around some of my fussy cut blooms. I also decided to add just a touch more pink to my layout, over the background texture I added earlier. For this I used a water brush and some Dylusions Ink Spray in Rose Quartz. I  squirted a little spray into the lid added a few drops of water from my brush pen then I went in and added colour where I wanted it. Lastly I added the gorgeous Annabelle ‘Sunshine & Smiles’ title and 2 of the very cute hearts.
