Scrapbook Layout - Happy Easter -
|a close up of the layout|
I am trying to kill all the collections from my stash, as i need to make room for all the goodies that are on my way (trust me I have pre-order enough paper to wallpaper my apartment twice). One of the collections I want to use up is Pink Paislee's Fancy Free collection (which i love, but couldn't get all the papers and add ons). Since the colors of the collection remind me of happy times, I chose to use it to document a picture of my son and sister on Easter Day.
|A little bit of machine stitching can add lots of texture, and dimension to a layout|
I started by cutting papers of the collection to 2x2in squares. I lined them up, slightly slanted, on the mat, and proceeded to machine stitched them at about a quarter of an inch inside each square. After they were all properly attached, I raised the edges of outer edges of the squares ( as seen on the picture).
|black and white pictures are my to go choice as they lend to all color combination|
I used papers from the collection to mat and layered the picture; all accents come from small clusters of ephemera, stickers and cut-outs.
For the title, I used a combination of Thickers and ephemera pieces. I added my journal lines at the bottom of the page, and added some extra details. Here is the final layout:
Though I love this collection, I also love all the new goodies coming my way, so I rather enjoy the pictures, and lovely papers together.
Till next time.
