Scrapbook Layout created for Simple Stories - SHINE -
I am up on the Simple Stories blog with two new projects using the new and gorgeous, "BEAUTIFUL" collection. Here is the first project:
You know that feeling when you see a patterned paper, and suddenly the entire layout comes to mind, picture and all! This is what happened as soon as i saw the "Shine Bright" paper from the Beautiful collection. For starters the name of the paper, and all the gold foil gave me the idea to create a star filled page.
Next i wanted to incorporate one of my favorite and most used techniques, "a large stitched title". For this i used one of the Simple Stories' Silhouette Store designs to cut the large "SHINE" word from one of the papers from the High Style paper pad. It was then backed with the Shine Bright paper, and then stitched together with pink and gold embroidery thread.
Once the stitching was completed, then I trimmed the page, and stitched on a slant to another of the High Style papers from the pad (I love that all these papers combine seamlessly), and attached the picture to the bottom of the page.
Using the same cut file, a lots of stars were created from different papers from the collection (all the leftover pieces from previous projects), and these were scattered around the page, so that they look as exploding from the bottom corner of the page.
Using pieces from all the embellishment add ons, small clusters were created along the page, so that they form a visual triangle, and bring attention to the picture, and title of the page. Here is the final
I love the combination of colors, dimension, and texture in this page. It came together in a heart beat (though the stitching took some time), and the end result is just worthy of the title.
As always let me know if you have any questions on how this came together!
See you in the next post!
