watch how I made this step by step

This might be one of the projects that took more time to make than usual. I had to use a new product to adhere all my heavy embellishments, so fingers crossed.

Fucshia, teal, feminine (butterflies and florals), unique, dreamy with some gold accents. Yep, I think that sums it all, end of this blog. Kidding!

When I was looking for the inspiration to make a housewarming gift, I was going through my stack of scrapbooking paper and found this!

Oh, the colors got me excited because I haven’t worked on pinks and blues in a while and this paper spoke to me. Yes, they do speak.

Quick disclaimer again, all of the products that I have used in this project are not sponsored and were bought from my own pocket. So, without further ado, let’s get to the materials list, shall we?

The idea to do this project was to achieve a very sophisticated look. The person or family that I was giving this project to has two little girls, that’s why I wanted a very girly look.

A softer look was achieved by combining the colors in a very smoother look that is very pleasing in the eyes. This canvas didn’t need any dark colors to emphasize the details of the textures. The light palette of softer pinks, blues, and creams really made this project neutral but elegant at the same time.

I love how the gem embellishments complement the color scheme by giving little dimensions of each color.

Since this is the family’s first home, I was happy to include a bible scripture from Luke.

This verse is true when you want to describe a home.

I love how this one turned out! I encourage you to watch the video on how I made this project for more descriptive information.

Have a great day everyone!
