Hello everyone! Eva Pizarro here today bringing you a layout inspired by the beautiful fruits from Pebbles and Jen Hadfield’s collection: Everyday. Growing up I lived in a house with a big garden. Thanks to my grandmother (she took care of the garden) we had all kinds of fruit trees, herbs, vegetables and even chickens! I always remember the vases with fresh cut flowers, the smell of fresh mint and the taste of home grown green beans and apricots. Now I live in a house with a small garden and my dream is to continue my grandmother’s tradition.
For this layout I got my inspiration from pictures I saw online. They reminded me of how I want my backyard to look! I also got inspired by the fruit designs in the Everyday collection and drew 3 fruits following the paper’s designs. I used a glass to trace 3 circles and sketch the fruits on American Craft’s cardstock. Don’t be intimidated by drawing – if I can do it, you can too!
I wanted to have my picture on one side and patterned paper on the other so I cut the inside of my fruit in half leaving a small border.
To embellish them I used flowers and pineapple leaves from the same patterned papers.
I placed my photo on the other half and finished my layout with my title and some strips of paper on the edges of my page. I thought the fruits were already big embellishments, so I kept my design simple.
I love the BIG alphas from the Home+Made collection – they add a graphic and modern feel to the page.
Here’s a close up of my fruits. I think they turned out great! Exactly how I wanted them!
Have a great day everyone!
