How To Make Flowers for A Delightful Sunshine Layout

Charity here with a post on how to make flowers for a delightful sunshine layout. I like to give my projects the personal touch of matching embellishments. For this one pager I was able to coordinate my flowers with my title as well as my background cardstock, all from The Robin's Nest.
~ Hello Sunshine ~
This layout began with a 2.5" strip of dark grey cardstock stiched to the far side of my background paper. I added strips of washi tape and then three layers of patterned grey cardstock to mat the photo.
 I stitched these layers down then added two ephemera cards. The card tucked under the photo I cut in half to offer multiple focal points.
 Now that my basic layout was ready I made the flowers. The sticker set was just the right colors for my theme. I punched two sets of the same flower in a similar print and one of the smaller flowers in a contrasting color. I stacked the larger flowers with the petals opposite of each other. The small flower went on top with a Dew Drop for the center.

   To hold these layers of flowers together I used the Best Glue Ever. This super strong yet fantastically flexible glue from ScraPerfect is wonderful for hand made flowers.
I punched flowers from yellow cardstock to coordinate with the ephemera cards. The smaller centers are topped with dew drops in a contrasting color.
 Embellie Gellie made it super easy to place dew drops at the flower centers and with the cork chevrons.

For a little variety I added a pre-made flower as the center of each flower cluster. The final touches of wood leaves and chipboard vines are held of with just a drop or two of BGE.
The ephemera cards were perfect for accents as well as a title. They had just the right hues and delicately flourished letters.
The blues and yellows of the flowers add to the elegant look of this one page layout. Their mild tones create the perfect foil for this poignant black and white photo.
