Hello everyone! My name is Zinia Amoiridou from Abstract Inspiration and I’m really thrilled to be here and share with you fun creations using Amy’s gorgeous designs.
The layout I’m gonna share with you today is really sweet and whimsical. I used a mix of the two most recent collections Amy designed “Oh happy day” and “Oh a whim”. On a first glance, you may think that these collections don’t work well together but if you isolate the colors a little bit, they complement each other beautifully.
So to create this page, I used a few of my favorite papers from “On a whim” to create an ice cream on a stick. Instead of using my Silhouette, I decided to free hand the design and make it look a bit more playful. I drew the ice cream on a scrap piece of printer paper, cut it down to pieces and used it as a template to cut my paper. As I was cutting the pieces I decided to do some decorative drips. After I put the pieces together, I cut off any excess from the sides and rounded the bottom corners.
For my background, I picked a paper from “Oh happy life” and I started building the final page. I placed the ice cream around the middle and created a small cluster to help my photo pop. I used a couple of ephemera pieces and paper scraps to layer behind the picture and embellished around with products from both collections.
I really love mixing different materials so I included clear stickers, puffy stickers, chipboard, washi tape, rubber shapes and even a little bit of stamping. I also fussy cut some hearts from one of the cut apart sheets and used them around the page as ephemera.
As a final touch, I added some big splatters around the ice cream. I used hot pink next to the blue and blue next to hot pink to keep the colors balanced across the page.
I love how this page turned out. Both collection scream summer and fun and this design really captures that vibe. I hope you will give it a go.
