Simple Stories Oh, Happy Day Layout Remember, You’ve Got This

Hey everyone and welcome to the Anna’s blog this week! I’m so excited to be here sharing my creations using the Simple Stories Oh, Happy Day Collection available HERE! My first share is this 12×12 layout called “Remember, You’ve Got This” and I love how this turned out!

Simple Stories Oh, Happy Day Layout Remember, You've Got This

Before I started I knew I wanted to go flower crazy! I pulled out ALL of the flowers from the Bits and Pieces pack and the Chipboard Stickers Pack. I made sure to keep the floral stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet and the 4×6 Stickers to hand!

To start my page I pulled out a piece of white textured cardstock and added a layer of clear gesso. While that dried I chose the Stay Sharp 12×12 Paper and tore about a 4″ strip off one side. On the left side of that strip I scored a line approx 1/4″ in so I could fold the paper. I had lots I wanted to write that is personal and I wanted space where it wouldn’t be obvious when you turned the page. I then stitched that paper to my white cardstock using my sewing machine.

Working out where my photo was going I added some white gesso on the pattern paper. Using some white modelling paste and a stencil I added some extra texture to both the paper and my background to bridge the layers.

The colours in this collection are fun and vibrant so I chose 2 Lindys Magical shakers for my colour and got to adding that to my background. I’ve used Alpine Ice Rose and California Poppy Gold. Where they mix they create a lovely orange that also goes well with this range!

When my mixed media was dry it was a matter of laying all the flowers up that vertical strip. To create interest and dimension I have added in between, under and on top of layers.

For a different texture I have pulled in some of the gorgeous Annabelle acrylic pieces. I have used one of the borders on the left of my photo and one each of the swirls and curls amongst the florals. I love the extra detail it gives!

My final touches were my title which I have used a couple of different alphas from my stash to create (they have since sold out in store! but you can put on an out of stock notification request x),
