Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend! I know I've been super busy trying to clear as much space in my scrapping area as possible to make room for all the new collections. Yikes - everything is just gorgeous! (do scroll down if you haven't had a chance to see all the new collections). I just adore the new papers, the color combinations in the collections, more ABC alphas (these are super addictive and perfect for all types of projects), those super fun journaling card/tabs -must have - and my most favorite, more STATIONERY colors. sigh. (please excuse me for a few minutes as I need to dry up my keyboard).
In my fatally attempts to clean up my scrapping area, I discovered that I still had a few pieces of chipboard accents left from the Domestic Bliss collection and love how these coordinated perfectly with the new Happily Lost collections and therefore, inspired me to create this layout about various textures (and also challenging myself to include as many as I could find/fit).
Then came the tissue tape which added design elements without taking away the original design and colors of the pattern paper. In which I then paired with a transparency as a background to provide another subtle design element.
Lily Bee Supplies used:
- Domestic Bliss Chipboard Stickers
- Happily Lost Pattern Paper - Stroll
- Happily Lost Mix Cardstock Stickers
- This & That Pattern Paper - Brooch
- Stationery Pattern Paper - Slushie
Hopefully all this makes some sense as i attempt to share my thought process (atleast it did when I was creating it, not so sure now..lol). Thanks again for stopping by everyone and don't forget to check back soon to see if you might be one of the lucky winners for the CHA-S 2011 reveal giveaways!!
