Tutorial: Anything with flowers and ribbons - Donna's take

Hi all! Donna here to share with you a layout I created for this month's challenge: "Anything with flowers and ribbons."

I also prepared a step-by-step on how I came up with my layout, hope you like it!

1. Choose a patterned paper with flower/floral prints. This is one of my favorite papers in the On Trend collection by Crate Paper.

2. Cut small and big-sized pennants/banners from various patterned papers. I LOVE animal prints! Still one of my favorites!
3. Spray some glimmer mist on your background paper/base cardstock and arrange the papers like so.
4. I don't usually adhere stuff yet until I like or know how they would look like when layered together.
5. Now to make the flowers pop even more, I created these flowers using the black gesso and Studio Calico  stencils which I always grab lately. I just love the small circles it creates on the background. 
Since I don't have a circle cutter, I used these to draw small and big circles on the stenciled cardstock
6. Fold, cut and snip to make the flower, as seen in the image below. Then use to mat the On Trend paper flowers. Love the added effect!
7. I also used one of the ribbons in the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection. Just adhere it at the back of each flowers.
8. Layer and adhere everything in place. I scattered enamel dots and then brushed some watercolors on the stenciled parts to make it pop a bit more. 

I hope you got inspired by my page! Do join us in this month's challenge! Thanks!
