Guest Designer: Nina Ostermann

Today I feature another page is by Nina OstermannNina's Instagram. I "met" Nina through my art classes on 2peas. when she posted her pages in the class gallery, I immediately saw that special something. She is an amazing artist and I admire her work greatly.

What Nina said about this page:

Flowers are so beautifully, so individually and unique. There are thousand different shapes, sizes, colors and I think most of us can never get enough of them. Flowers can change a home into a cozy place. 
Next to my kids, husband and doggy they are one of my favorite photography subject and I love doing layouts with those pictures, of course.
For my first project as the "I Heart Studio" guest designer I decided to use one of my dearest last weeks flowers pictures in combination with a sentence and also some leaves Cut Files. 
Both are cutting on plain white cardstock. This is the way I mostly cut with my Silhouette Cameo because I can use those cuts untreated white (yes I´m a white lover ;-) and also painted in different colors who works best with my projects. 
For todays page I used the white word cut file onto a watercolor painted background and it pops restrained out of the page. I like the effect. The leaves are uneven painted with green watercolor. They are layered involuntarily together with the square picture and some layers of white silk paper. That´s a great keyword. Layering. To create different levels makes pages, mini albums or cards a little bit more interesting, I think. Therefore my pictures are mostly layered on the back. With this simple thing we can create a first layer without any complicated technique or anything like that. Easy, right?!
