Pink and Polka Dots

>> Thursday, January 20, 2011

During this time of year, as the temperatures drop and "brrr" becomes a way of life, the more important it becomes, I believe, to surround yourself with color and to infuse as much warmth and energy as you can into your layouts.  One of the perks of having Lily Bee products at the ready is that you won't need to search very far for papers and accents that pack a punch.

Lately, I've been thinking pink -- as in, bright pink, bold pink, cheerleader-on-caffeine pink -- and polka dots.  Yes, polka dots, which we all know Lily Bee does like no one else.

To create this layout, I layered Lily Bee papers in black, white, and pink, and added banners using stickers from the Domestic Bliss, Christmas Town, and Catching Fall lines.  A little tan polka dot action adds some neutrality to the mix.

The pink fixation continues on my next layout, with polka dots making an appearance once again as well.

This photo of a "Love Lasts" candy heart speaks volumes to me.  The first words that pop into my head whenever I see this photo are "I believe it," and so that became my title.  I shared some of the love with each of the Domestic Bliss patterned paper rectangles on this grid layout (which is, incidentally, one of the easiest kind of layouts to put together and one of most enjoyable to create, as each rectangle is its own little domain).

To ensure that the pink and yellow color scheme would work all the way across the layout, I added a bit of yellow paint to a few of the papers, as in the polka dot paper and the floral paper below.

I'm telling you -- the best cure for the winter blahs is COLOR, care of Lily Bee!
