Love the color combo here. The reds and yellows pop without overwhelming.

love how the flowers follow the circle border

This is just gorgeous, Anna-Karin! The colors are so fantastic with that wonderful photo, and how awesome that you had that tapestry piece! Love all your flowers and how they curve around the circle!

I think this layout turned out just amazing with all the colors and flowers on it. I like the stiching around the circle and the piece of the fabric- fantastic challenge to do and fantastic layout of yours.

Here's my layout for the How Much Is Too Much challenge #174 (Sunny flowers). It is my turn to host and I took Midsummer celebrations as my inspiration for the challenge. The challenge is to use: mainly light colours, and it must include at least a bit of yellow, 1 circle, 7 different types of flowers (if you want to, try making one or more handmade flowers),7 rub-ons or stamped images, 24 other items. Check out what the team did on the blog at [] . I hope you will play along with us!

I made a difficult challenge for myself! I wanted to include a bit too many things on this layout: an enlarged photo, a woven piece of fabric depicting a Midsummer celebration, a rather big stamp and then of course the flowers. I struggled a bit to pull it all together. The seven flowers are all different: cut from paper, die cut daisy, layers of watercoloured canvas, die cut from patterned papers, made of twisted and inked sticky-backed canvas, embossed and coloured vellum, die cut and embossed Core'dinations cardstock. The stamps are: music, script, strawberry, silhouette children, date, month, and a flower stamp. The photo is from a midsummer celebration when we were children. Midsummer is celebrated in a traditional way in Sweden in June, and includes dancing around a maypole and eating traditional food, and always strawberries. A lot of people wear flower wreaths on their heads. There is also a myth that if young people pick 7 different kinds of wildflowers, jump over 7 fences, and place the flowers under their pillow on this night, they will dream of the man/woman they will marry. Journaling is behind the layout.
