Fun with polka dots and circles!

>> Tuesday, March 13, 2012

There is no doubt that Lily Bee has the best range of polka dot papers.  Not only are the polka dot designs in the ranges, but then there is a great range colors available in coordinating papers for each range with ledger on one side and great monochromatic polka dot designs on the other.

Polka dots are one of my favourite pattern designs - so I decided to make a layout using primarily polka dot papers (I did sneak a tiny bit of stripe in there!) and also incorporating more circles into my design.  This is what I came up with ...

You can see that I have used a divine orange polka dot from the Head Over Heals range as the base, adding some swipes of gesso to create a mat area for my photo and journaling.  I have then added the green polka dot in various sized circles in a splash across the page.  Three grey rings completes my collection of circles.  I do love a circle (or two or ten!).



I really like the Polaroid theme for photos that is around at the moment, so I converted my 4x6 inch photo into a Polaroid by trimming it square and mounting it onto a Polaroid shaped piece of cardstock - simple and effective.  I have created a banner using the banner stickers from the mixed cardstock sticker sheet from the Harvest Market range - finishing it with brads and twine bows.

One of my favourite techniques with the ABC Stickers is to create a long title - often curved around circle shapes.  For this layout I have an extra long title that curves around three of the larger circle shapes.




This is a busy layout, but I love how it turned out and it is very reflective of my busy 6 year old son!
