Cocoa Vanilla Studio: One Of A Kind

Hi Everyone!

Welcome back for more Cocoa Vanilla Studio inspiration!
Today I am sharing my latest layout with the gorgeous Bohemian Dream collection.
And because I was team 'Blue' for the team theme post earlier this month,
I wanted to pay respect to the other colours in this collection.
This time I am focusing on all those pretty purples and pinks.....

Here's what I created,

"One Of A Kind"

Swoon! Oh so beautiful!!!
And how cute are my two in the pic?
Always happiest when they're together!
& let's not forget to mention that PINK wall backdrop!
I know, right?! Everyone needs a hot pink wall in their life!

When it comes to using purples and pinks I like to use complimentary tones and lots of pretty layers! I wanted to create a real feature of such delicate colours -
 and the diagonal design was just perfect for this!
 I start with that gorgeous triangle of patterned paper, CV-BD003 ABSTRACT (B side), I just LOVE this paper - the colour and the print are just divine!!!
The school teacher in me dictates that the focal point must be top left, as we read left to right, top to bottom. This ensures that your eye is drawn to the photograph immediately, and forms a much greater impact too!
I've used white cardstock leaf die cuts to soften that sharp triangle edge, and then layered it with pretty butterflies, blooms and my photo cluster. So many pretty layers to create more texture, dimension and interest for your eye!
A few scattered ENAMEL SHAPES, a super sweet FLAIR BUTTON & journaling in the bottom right corner complete this lovely layout.
Let's take a closer look......

 Oh that butterfly!!!
 It's been fussy cut from patterned paper, CV-BD006 BOHO BITS,
 and is just the prettiest adornment to my sweet photograph!
 And speaking of pretty, those pink 3 x 4 cards beneath my photo are from patterned paper, CV-BD004 BEAUTIFUL MESS
My photo is also supported by some white tissue paper, and a DIE CUT EPHEMERA frame, bloom and printed tab. Gorgeous!
With the base layers beneath my photograph sorted, I turn to embellishing the photo with an ACCESSORY STICKEROne of a Kind,
and that super cute CHIPBOARD ACCENT STICKER heart!
Here's another view for you......

Lovely, indeed!
You'll spot more butterflies, this time from the DIE CUT EPHEMERA pack, as well as a few ENAMEL SHAPES. I add some white cotton floss for a gentle textured look.
 That LOVELY sentiment is also from the CHIPBOARD ACCENT STICKERS -
how fabulous is the ombre finish on it?!! LOVE!

Gah! SO pretty!!!! I NEED an entire packet of those butterflies! So good!

Pink & purple never looked so good together!
For a polished and finished look, you'll spot that sweet FLAIR BUTTON, and the typewriter font journaling from the ACCESSORY STICKERS.......

Blue may be my favourite colour, but the pink & purple in Bohemian Dream has definitely won me over!
I hope you liked my pink and purple page, and feel inspired to create with these colours too!
Thanks so much for visiting today,
til next time,

Happy Arty Days,
