Following My Dreams // Felicity Jane

Hello friends! It’s Andrea and I’m sharing a fun layout using the Brooke collection! When I saw the 2×2 vellum papers I just knew I wanted to make a grid design using them so I started there.

Once I picked out the 2×2 papers, I knew I wanted die cuts and embellishments that were the same shade to be layered on each square. I pulled shapes and pieces from the die cut pack and started seeing what looked good and popped off the vellum.

I used the crape paper ruffle as a square and added some alphas to it. Some squares got a bit of text, some just a shape, but I wanted to make each one unique and not replicate any of them even though they all had similar elements.

The title actually came last – after I had chosen the 2×2 quote. I added puffy stickers to a strip of white crape trim so it stood out and had texture.

I also had fun roughing up the edges and pulling up some corners. I always think it’s fun to add a little something “under” the corner – like a little reveal – so I added a puffy shape where the corner would have been.

I could have played for hours just adding colors to more and more squares!

Thank you for being here and I hope you found something fun and inspiring in this project. Even if it’s simply playing with color or adding texture to your projects!
