Dynamic Duo: Painted Blossoms

The Dynamic Duo: Painted Blossoms Stencil Set features a beautifully crafted 2 layered flower and leaf arrangement, giving them a stunning painted look. Stencil 1 includes the 2 flowers and their layers, while stencil 2 includes the leaves and its layers.

 

The 3″ x 4″ Dynamic Duo: Painted Blossoms Stamp Set goes hand in hand with the Painted Blossoms Layering Stencil Set. It includes layered centers of the 2 flowers, followed by elegant inspiring sentiments that help spread positivity and encouragement.

I love the movement in the design of the new Dynamic Duo: Painted Blossoms,  it is the perfect size for all kinds of projects.  So, what better way to use it than to create the title page and journaling cards for an interactive memory-keeping layout? Let's take a look at today's project.

Creating an Interactive Memory-Keeping Layout

I love how the stencil set and stamp in the new Dynamic Duo: Painted Blossoms create floral branches in minutes.  Creating a few of them to showcase in this pocket page spread was effortless.  Here is how this came together.

Creating the Embellishments

I started this layout by creating die-cuts from the Dynamic Duo Painted Blossoms set.  And since the main photos I wanted to showcase are the ones of my husband and son, I chose a masculine color palette.

For this, I used the layering stencil, with Sweet Dreams Fresh Dye Ink, Blue Mountain Fresh Dye Ink, Nature's Wonder Fresh Dye Ink, Forest Trail Fresh Dye Ink, and Wood Warbler Fresh Dye Ink to bring tones of blue and teal for my flowers.

I trimmed parts of the floral branch to help me create my journaling and sentiment cards for my pocket page, along with the focal point in my title/interactive page.

Bringing Interest to the Background

Though the Dynamic Duo: Painted Blossoms florals are beautiful on their own, I chose to bring a little extra detail to the background.

The Honeycomb Daisies Cover die adds a subtle layer of texture and interest to the background without adding more bulk.

Time To Go Interactive

I love keeping my pages airy and light, especially with florals.  So, creating a pocket for one of the photos helps keep the focal points of the page together, as the pocket's design encases one of the photos in a tag.

For this, I chose the Ornate Nesting Die Set to create the pocket for the title page.  I used thin lines of tape to adhere it to my title page and create the pocket.

The size of the pocket opening helped with creating the tag that houses the picture.

Finishing with Style

I always work down to the last details whenever I create an interactive memory-keeping layout.

This time,  I created my title and journal card sentiment with the One-Go Loving Sentiments die set and Dynamic Duo Painted Blossoms, using Obsidian Pigment Ink.

A few Sweet Dreams Enamel Dots sprinkled throughout the spread brought the spread all together.
