Chillin’ in the Flowers -Raechelle Bellus

Hello! 🙂 Do flowers make you happy? They do me! And our cat. 😉

We live on the second floor in an apartment and fortunately we have a nice little deck area where I am able to creatively surrond myself with plenty of pretty flowers. To maximize our space I used some baskets that hang over the railing of our deck. And since our cat likes to sit on the railing, it was only a matter of time before she would also “have to” sit in the flower baksets. If you are a cat owner, then you know how this goes… you try and try to stop them, but in the end you are facing a losing battle, and well… there comes a time when you just give in. It’s tiresome to fight a battle with a queen. lol



After cutting the oh-so-perfect Wedding Boquet cut file I set it on the base of my layout and lightly traced around a few areas to capture the general shape. I then created a mixed media background using the packaging technique and finishing off with a few splats of a contrast color.

It took a bit of time to back this file with seveal coordinating colors and mixed prints, but the effort was well worth it.

At the end of the day, my flowers weren’t too much worse for the wear and our cat also got to enjoy them, so I suppose it’s a win-win. At least for her.

I hope that you have been inspired by my layout to create! Head over to the store and start creating!

We love to see what you’re making so don’t forget to share on the CUT to YOU HQ on facebook!
