Cocoa Vanilla Studio: Throwback Thursday - Hello Lovely!

Hi Creative Friends!

Time to share a lil  Cocoa Vanilla Studio love, 
& today I am celebrating Throwback Thursday with the gorgeous Hello Lovely collection!
I made SO many beautiful creations with this line when it was first released back in 2015, 
but it seems I'm still LOVING it as I had no trouble creating with it again! 
It's just soooooooo preeeeeetty!!!

Here's what I came up with,
"Love You"

Ga ga gorgeous!!!
You'll spy lots of pretties here!
I start with a white cardstock base, to which I add a scalloped punched border trim with pattern paper, CV-HL002 GLIMMER.
Next, I cut out that divine Butterfly Ring cut file (from Citrus Twist Kits) with our super beautiful CV-HL006 FLOWER PATCH pattern paper.
 Absolutely gor-jus!!! This pretty floral paper is simply heavenly! I draw on the colors to inspire my mixed media base.

The media is a simple series of coordinating watercolor rings, paint flicks & splatters. Lots of fun! Once dry, I apply the Flower Patch butterfly ring, and begin to embellish the cut file.
First, I frame my darling photograph with an DIE CUT EPHEMERA frame, and then adorn it with pretty blooms....

Oh how darling is this?!! 
So super sweet!
Next, I take as many butterfly embellishments that I can find, and add them to my page! I love the look of layered butterflies, so I use a few DIE CUT EPHEMERA ones on my cut file butterflies. Cute! For a bit of 'wow' factor, I also fussy cut that beautiful Monarch butterfly from pattern paper, CV-HL005 LUCKY DIP and add it to the largest butterfly in the ring. Talk about a feature piece! This is such a beautiful detail!

Isn't it something?!!
If you look carefully, you'll also spy a few teeny tiny WOOD VENEER butterflies layered on the cut file, as well as scattered around the ring, too! Speaking of veneer, I use the exquisitely cut 'love you' WOOD VENEER as my layout title. So awesome!

To draw a lil more attention to the title,
 I add that stunning brass LUCKY CHARMS arrow to direct you in!
For the remainder of my layout, I simply decorate and embellish on and around the butterfly ring with SEQUINS, ENAMEL DOTS, DIE CUT EPHEMERA & more WOOD VENEER. With such a darling photograph, I can't resist adding a few DIE CUT EPHEMERA & VELLUM HEARTS. So Beautiful!

Such a simple design, and yet so incredibly detailed and beautiful!

All the butterfly LOVE!!!
I hope my layout has inspired you to go back and revisit some of the older 
Cocoa Vanilla Studio collections! 
I think it's safe to say that they're still winning my heart over! 
Hello Lovely, indeed!

til next time, 

Happy Arty Days,
