We start a new week here on a Daily Inspiration and we are going to showcase different techniques for your layouts and projects. Today Lucy shares a gorgeous layered look by cutting out the flowers found on the BasicGrey "Sugared" line. By bending each individual flower and layering them, she adds dimension and a pop of color to her layout.

Papers: BasicGrey-Sugared and My Mind's Eye Wild Aspargus-Home
Die-cut frame: My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus-Home
Love Die-cut: My Mind's Eye
Distressing Tool: Heidi Swapp
original vintage buttons

First distress the edges of your photo using the Heidi Swapp distressing tool.
Place it on the frame.
Cut a strip about 12 cm from a basic grey patterned paper, make some free hand scallops that follow the pattern of the paper and place it over your background.
Choose a BasicGrey floral paper and cut out the flowers and leaves.
Place it in one side of your photo and curl the ends of various flowers and leaves up for added dimension.
Add vintage buttons and a small title (Love) and it's ready to rock.
