Monkeying Around Floral Layout

Other Products: Cardstock (white, brown, green), Tombow Adhesives (Mono Aqua, Xtreme Adhesive, Mono Permanent, 3D Foam  Tape), Tombow Dual Brush Markers (DB 992, DB 177), Hot Glue, Wood Embellishments, Ink- Stampin' Up (Crushed Curry), CTMH (Chocolate), Chameleon Markers (YG3, YL2, BR5), Scrapbook Adhesives Photo Corners, May Arts Brown Mesh

Instructions: Use the brown patterned paper as your background. Cut white cardstock to 11" x 11" and the yellow patterned paper to 10.75" x 10.75". Cut a strip of the dark green patterned paper to 3" x 10.75", and a piece of the light patterned paper to  2" x 10.75". Adhere the 2 strips together and adhere to the middle of the yellow patterned paper. Adhere the yellow patterned paper to the white cardstock layer. Add the mesh ribbon to the layered border across the layout and adhere in the back of the cardstock. Adhere all of the layers to the brown patterned paper.

Stamp and die cut 9 of the floral images. Stamp and die cut one of the hanging monkeys. Stamp and die cut one of the hammock monkeys. Stamp and die cut 3 bananas. Shape your floral pieces.

Trace a large circle onto your layered background. (If you do not have a large circle template to use, a dinner plate or large bowl will often do the trick.) I used hot glue to adhere the floral pieces around the traced circle, you could also use a liquid adhesive if you prefer. In between each floral piece I added a wooden embellishment. Erase any pencil marks that still show. Add the hanging monkey die cut to the upper right hand part of your floral circle, using 3D foam tape. Add the monkey in a hammock to the bottom left hand corner of your layout, also using 3D foam tape.

Cut a strip of the polka dot patterned paper that is 2.5" x 7" and adhere up the middle of the layout. Cut a strip of the lighter green patterned paper that is 1" x 8" and adhere on top of the polka dot patterned paper. I cut the photo to 4" x 4" and matted it in white, green and then brown cardstock. I added photo corners to the photo and adhered it to the layout using 3D foam tape. Find and cut out the “I'm Bananas Over You” sentiment. Add a banana to each end and adhere just below your matted photo. Using liquid adhesive I added gold Prills to the middle of each flower.
