How to create a simple layered flower look:

To create the layout, I started by die-cutting various flower and leaf shapes from leftover pieces of cardstock and patterned paper. I had lots of 6×6 Altenew Paper Pack scraps and I don't like throwing them away so die-cutting is a great way to use up those leftover bits and bobs.

Once I had finished cutting out all my pieces, I created the background. I used an 8.5″ by 11″ white cardstock and used Altenew Artist Markers to create a striped pattern. I love using this technique in my background. Instead of artist markers, why not try watercolors or the Altenew Watercolor Pencils?

Once I had my backdrop done, I placed a piece of embossed white cardstock which was in my “to use” bowl, and added the floral elements. I constructed two clusters. One with yellow and orange tones to match the yellow of the artist marker and another with pink/blue tones. I opted to use a black and white photo as it will not clash with the colors chosen for the layout and at the same time, it will add contrast to the page.
