My Love | Kelly Pyron

Sometimes you just need a little floral beauty and creativity to brighten up your day! This was one of those days. The Simply Flora cut file made me happy just looking at it! I imagined bright and cheery blooms and colorful patterned paper … and my mood was instantly brightened and inspiration struck! I knew the perfect photo to go along with the cut-file and a layout idea was born! 🙂

I cut the file on textured white cardstock and then used bright and cheery colors and patterns to back the cut-file. As I was going through my stash, I came across this whimsical hedgehog and bird element and knew they had to make it on this layout. I mean.. just look at all that cuteness! ❤

I used clear gesso on my backgroud and added some watercolor splashes and gold mist droplets under the cut-file for another layer of happy color and loveliness.

I layered more floral stickers, gold leaves, and hearts for more dimension and interest. (You can never have enough layers, can you?)

And taaa-daaa! A completed layout of my darling grand-love that makes me so happy and creatively satisfied! If you are in need of a mood lift, go check out all the lovely floral cut-files in the shop… it won’t take long before you feel inspired and perhaps a bit happier! ❤

Splish-Splash | Kelly Pyron

Hello Friends! Kelly here with a new layout of my grand-love, Carson. My daughter recently sent me pictures of him at the swimming pool with pure delight on his face. I knew the Splish- Splash Cut File would be perfect for this sweet photo!

I wanted a very organic, fluid feel to this page. So, I went full-on mixed media with this layout. I used gesso, inks, embossing powder, water soluable crayons, and Nuvo drops to get a liquid, watercolor vibe.

I also did some hand-stitching on each water droplet for a litte more defintion and texture.

I used dimesional foam tape to pop the water droplets up to create more depth on the page. I also used some sequins and clear gems in clusters around the page as my finishing touch.

I must say, I LOVE how this turned out! Using this cut file was my inspiration starting point and the entire creative journey of this layout was so fun! I have a process video if you would like to see the step-by-step process of how I created this layout.
