Hey everyone! It's Melissa here today to share a layout with you. I really love the new "Buttercup" collection. Yellows, blues, & grays are prominent in this collection and those colors just make me happy!
To create the foundation of my layout, I took a piece of white card stock and then started layering sheets of paper from the 6"x6" pad in the "Buttercup" collection. I used white gesso to help adhere the papers down and when I had all the paper where I wanted them, I swiped some more gesso over the top of all of the papers to give it a slight white washed effect. It helped tone down all of the patterns and colors I had used just a bit. In between some of the layers, I tucked in some index cards. I used my tiny attacher to help hold everything down.
At the top of the layout, I stapled down some twine and then used the pennant stickers from the "Buttercup" collection to create a banner across the length of the layout.
