cocoa daisy: february reveal!

the cocoa daisy gallery is live and there is lots of beautiful inspiration there.  the design team just can't get enough of this month's edition, journal entry.  i am especially enamored with the exclusive floral paper and have used it on all five of my projects so far (it's that large floral you see on the bottom right of the layout above).  i'm sharing a couple of the projects on my blog today, but all five can be viewed over on the cocoa daisy design team gallerycocoa daisy journal entry, day in the life, and daisy day planner kits can be purchased now as subscriptions.  add-ons and exclusive items are available to members only at this time, but will be available to the general public on the first.

design: this one has a lovely quilted feel about it.  my favorite part is the look of the floral patterned paper in the glassine envelope overlayed over another piece of the same paper.  the paper in the envelope holds my journaling on the flip side.

technique: i may never buy kraft cardstock again.  oh my goodness.  i am in love with the brown paper bags (and glassine envelopes) that the kits come in.  i can think of a million uses for them.  this layering a large piece of it over colored cardstock (that i never, ever use) is a win, win.

photos: i went back to the farm a second time in one week to get that picture of the blooming onion.  who knew an onion blossom was so very beautiful.  breath-taking, really.  g took the picture of me in the peas.  please and thank you, i said.

journaling: it's all about my love for flowers and how this was the year that i  loved them more than ever, growing my own, buying a few at the grocery, getting armfuls at homer's farm, and stopping on the side of the road to photograph my favorites, the wildflowers.

product:  cocoa daisy, of course!  main kit only!

an accompanying project life page.  i pulled in a bit from the add-ons for this one.

lots more flower love on this page.  happiness.
