Our Layout of the Week, Dreaming, comes from our member Maria (username Mariabi74). We love Maria's bold use of color and the stamping throughout her layout! To keep up with Maria and see more of her work, be sure to follow her here at SC and on her blog.
Here's what Maria has to say about her project:
I'm thrilled to have my layout chosen this week! It was inspired by the delicate yellow flowers from the picture. I wanted to highlight the color using matching paper and subtle ornaments. The stamp from the Summer of Sketches class kit stands out, which has become a must in my latest pieces of work. The title continues with the same color palette, some small color touches with the chipboards to frame the picture, and voilà! A sweet and inspiring layout to appreciate the small things which surround us. Thanks so much for this opportunity.
