What inspires you? Floating around Pinterest can lead to an overload of inspiration, right? Why not use those PINS to give you a head start on your papercrafting ideas? Today Vero is going to show us how she took beauty from a floral arrangement and converted it to a GORGEOUS layout!
“Midnight Garden is the most romantic collection. These red colors and vintage designs have truly enchanted me. Inspired by a Pinterest floral center (above), I made a layout using my favorite Prima products from this lovely collection.” ~ Vero Atienza

Pull out one or two colors that you love from your Pin, then find Prima flowers to match! You can build up your own bouquet by placing the largest flower around your photo first, then filling in with medium, and smaller flowers. Tuck paper leaves in to fill gaps.
Stamp butterflies and leaves with Finnabair’s new stamp sets on white paper to create inexpensive embellishments. The black and white composition provides contrast and a restful place for your eye to land.
Finish off with a bit of gel and beads to add gorgeous texture to your piece! Just dab a brush into gel, dab onto your layout where you feel a little touch is needed, then sprinkle beads over.
