“Ska Vi Ta En Fika”…it’s such a gorgeous collection! I have a crush on purple, so I just love to focus on the purple papers that are part of this collection. Since I am not a big fan of coffee (“fika”) I decided to use the “Fika” collection in a slightly different way. Thus, I made this feminine and elegant lay-out with it.
I titled my lay-out ‘In de wolken’, which is a Dutch saying that is similar to the English expression ‘On cloud 9’. Just before this photo was taken, I got my hair treated with a curling iron. Since I was a little child, I always wished to wake up with curls some day, so I was really excited to have curls in my hair – even though it was only for one day.
The basis of my lay-out was made with two gingham papers from the “Fika” collection. I then cut out two squares from cream papers and punched along their edges. I layered the squares on top of the gingham papers. Then, I started doing some of my typical layering with doilies, papers and a cut out grid pattern from the “Hybakat” paper. In the end I also added some embellishments, clouds and a title to finish off my lay-out. Supplies:
