Olivia Workshop Layout #4

I was so inspired by this paper set that I did a little creative cutting on this layout. Even though I cut the tar out of the light floral B&T, I still had a 4 x 8 section leftover to use on my first layout and was able to cut that flower out of the leftover.

Sometimes when I do these free-handed cuts, I start with a basic square cut, but I didn't with this one. I just followed the lines that were already part of the design. Once they are cut out, the 4 x 8 is square cut, avoiding the large flower that I used on the 1st layout. As for the est of the page, I cut a 4 x 12 and a 4 x 2 of the polka-dot Sunset B&T and tore the long edge of the 12 x 4 and 2 edges of the 4 x 2. All these edges I distressed by scraping them through Bamboo ink. (Gold ink would've worked better for it if I had any!)
I added a couple of Shimmer brads to opposite corners of the layout. To decorate the top right I stamped on a scrap of some leftover B&T in Barn Red. I overlapped several large leaves and then cut out the whole grouping together. If I had it to do all over again, I would probably have matted this grouping on a lighter color of cardstock, like Bamboo. That would really make it pop!
