Authentique and Petaloo are a perfect combination. For this project, I created with the Explore collection. I love how the Petaloo flowers brought out the colors in my favorite paper collection and added a soft, lovely touch.
I'll be honest....creating with flowers really intimidates me. They are so beautiful and amazing in the package, but I wonder how I will use them to accent and not overwhelm my projects. The secret, for me, is to create clusters, whether large or small, that frame the focal point of your project. I start small and continue to add flowers and leaves until I get the look that makes me happy. My favorite thing about Petaloo flowers is the variety. There are so many great styles that blend together beautifully with colors to match any project.
I began my project with a great cork background and added wide strips of paper from the Explore collection. Next, I chose a fantastic photo of Marilyn Monroe for this project. I love how carefree and happy she looks. After adhering to the background paper, I simply starting building accents around my photo. The detail stickers and life cards in the Explore collection add so much fun and personality to any project.
