Beautiful Layered Florals

Seeing how other people mix and match the different papers together is always so fun for me! I definitely have my favorite combinations of papers, but it’s also great to be inspired by other people because they often combine papers I might not have put together! I’m loving how design team member, Jessy, combined some different floral papers on her scrapbook page. She cut the flower shapes out individually and then layered them in such a beautiful way!

Dream Big!

Hello! One of the things about being an artist is there is always a lot of trial and error and also creative practice! Sometimes we try an idea and it doesn’t work exactly how we envisioned. Or we try a new technique and it takes a while to get it down. But the great thing is, that none of it truly has to go to waste. If you save onto those scraps and “mistakes” they can often make their way…
