This is a layout on Chloe's first birthday. The inspiration for this layout is from the photographs. I've used the colours and the mysterious feel of the photographs in this layout.
First of all, I've used the 3D blocking techniques here. (Refer to my topic "3D Blocking techniques" in my tips and tricks section)
Secondly, I've used the "Using Flowers within Flower" technique for the huge bloom in my layout. (Refer to my tips and tricks section)
I've used various chipboard pieces in this layout. I've painted the flourishes chipboard pieces and stamped it. I've also used some chipboard letters to create the title.
I've piled up three heart shape tags or frames and used various different pattern papers and vellum to add some colours and interest to it. To soften the look, I've used some fibers to tie them together to part of the chipboard flourishes.
In this layout, I've also doodled as well as using some flourishes rub-ons on the photographs. I've also hand doodled the huge white flourishes on the lower left hand corner.
It has been interesting doing the 3D blocking design! Try it!
