Do you like making grid design layouts... ? I don't know if it's something for everyone, but I LOVE them and it's been quite some time, since I made one, so I really enjoyed making this layout.

What I love about grid designs, is that they are so easy and they come together super fast, plus, they always turn out fun.  For my layout, I started by choosing the patterned papers that I wanted to use. I used the Fairy Garden collection for this layout which has amazingly cute papers. I chose four that have a white background and colorful pattern and then five that only have one color. I backed them with white paper and distressed the edges. Then I backed them with white paper once more but used foam tape this time, to make them pop and to create some shadows. I distressed the edges again to make the whole thing more fun and interesting. 

I adhered my nine squares to a blue patterned paper with clouds that I had splattered with white paint just before.  I used a photo of me and my girlfriends, matted it on white, then colorful patterned paper and adhered it to the layout. Then I went through all of the embellishments from the collection and spent some time choosing and deciding what I wanted to do and where I wanted to place everything. 

I kind of did a vertical design by leaving the upper right and bottom left corner a bit more empty. Just those two blank spots help the whole layout seem less overcrowded and give the eyes a place to rest. For the rest, I used die-cut pieces, enamel shapes, enamel dots and jewels. I also used a Doodle Pop rainbow with clouds, love it!!  I adhered some of the embellishments with liquid glue, directly onto the paper, and other ones I adhered using foam squares. I love it when the layout has different dimensions and has those shadows you create when you use dimensional adhesives. 

I love the word die-cuts from Doodlebug. There's always a word you can use for your title. I love to pair those with alpha stickers in different fonts. 

That its it for today! I hope you enjoyed it and see you very soon!
