Sunflower Love

Happy Sunday!  Today I wanted to share with you an autumn layout of one of my favorite flowers...the sunflower.  I love their cheery yellow petals.

I love the new "Sunshine In My Soul" Collection that Glitz Design has recently come out with.  The colors are so autumn and so rustic.  They were the perfect choice for this layout.  I used the "Suns" paper from the collection to cut the yellow sunflower's petals.  If you will see next to the right side of the photo, I have used the Kreaxions 4 in 1 Punch #311 with insert A to punch a border design.  Kreaxions punches are so versatile and fun to work with.

The wood embellishments right now are so fun and I wanted to keep with the warm, rustic feelling of the layout so I added some words for the title as well as the dragonflies that I stained with Tim Holtz's Tea Dye Distress Stain.

Sequins are also very trendy too and I added them to the center of the flowers and also some fall leaves and applied them randomly to the page to give some bling and shine.  I also used some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Mustard to give the center of the yellow petals of the flowers a little more pop.

To finish off the page, I took out my vintage sewing machine and my Distrezz-It-All to give more texture and dimension.  The sketch I was inspired by was created by Laura Whitaker.

Thanks so much for sharing your day with me.  I hope you are inspired to go and do a little creating.  Have a great day!
