FULL OF JOY - Scrapbook Nerd
Spring is finally here, and that means lots of color starting to pop around my part of the world. I love having colorful papers to work with, so i pulled the Spring Farmhouse collection from Simple Stories to create a new project for Scrapbook Nerd.
It all started with some mixed media to the sides of a gessoed Bazzil Marshmallow cardstock. A bit of black art Crayon and gold glaze from VIcki Boutin create the perfect background for the soft lines of the cut file from Handipaper (which was backed with some vellum).
Once the background dried, two strips of paper from the collection were machine stitched to the page, and the cut out was also glued to the background so that it looks as peeking from behind the paper strips.
All the floral pieces from the Spring Farmhouse ephemera pack were fussy cut to reduce the white edge on them. These were combined with stickers from the same collection to create clusters around the picture and form a diagonal design on the page.
For the title, a phrase was chosen from the Simple and Sweet gold puffy stickers from Pinkfresh Studio. This sits next to a small cluster of fussy cut florals. A few lines of journal and some gold ink complete this page.
I love the contrast of the mixed media, vellum and the colors of the collection. Remember to stop by Scrapbook Nerd to check this collection and lots of new lines arriving to the store. If you have questions about how this was put together, please contact me!
Now i am off to enjoy Spring!
