As I get ready to attend another crop next weekend (Scrap Cafe in Bracknell), here I am sharing another layout that I made at the Artful Angels crop last month.

I added the stitching at home only recently, as I thought that it needed something else and it was looking a bit bare in the edges. And so glad I did! It really works very well.

I just used my watercolours directly into the cardstock, I didn’t prime it with gesso first. But it is a 300gsm cardstock, so very thick, and I knew that the watercolour would be fine on it.

I then borrowed a few tiny punches from the crop table and went through my stash looking for papers that would match the watercolours. The papers used under the photo and for the photo corners are from the gorgeous Sunshine and Happiness collection by Simple Stories. It is such a bright and colourful collection, I love it!

So, as you can see, a very simple layout, but I just love the simplicity of it and how the photo is still the focal point. I hope you like it!
