Hey everyone how’s your Chinese New Year? How many hong pao did you get? This year i cant get the hong pao because already married so this is my second year to give some hong pao to my younger family.
This time I want to create a layout with mint or blue shades. Actually I do not really like the color but that does not mean I can not try to make a layout using only one color that is blue or mint.
Inspired layout comes from twopeasinabucket by Paige Taylor Evans .
I created this layout for my clients who ask me to do a layout as a gift to his girlfriend on the 14th Feb which is also her birthday.
In this layout I used the old collection by MME ranging from background to a heart-shaped paper, I also use paper by Fancy Pants, flowers by Prima, Wood Veneer , Masking and Mister Hueys by Studio Calico.
The hardest part and most time consuming in this layout is to make a heart-shaped piece. I made two big heart shape in the background and also the small one a sweetener and to make some volume in this layout. I stamped the big hearts paper using stamp by Prima new collection. After that I attach some small heart-shaped paper which has some white pearls in the edges.
I give some garlands as a sweetener at the top and also the bottom.
Actually a bit hard to play with just one primary color on a layout. The easiest way to make this layout comes to life is using white and gray paper on some parts.
I also never be afraid to use some flowers the big or the small one and combain it in my America-style layout as long as you can use it not too much and in accordance with the base color that you used in the layout.
This is the full page hope you like it!
