I don’t know about where you live but these last two days have felt like spring – we’ve had such a mild winter I think I’ve been in the spring mentality for a while now.
When it comes to scrapping, I’ve really been working to rediscover freedom in what pictures I use. So far, I’ve done almost too well keeping up with Project Life – I sorta don’t have much to scrap that is super current. So, to make sure I’m still having fun and not letting creating become too regimented, I’m making a point to scrap whatever just to play!
This is one of those projects. This picture was taken on a trip I led last summer to Colorado. It’s so fun! I had lots of products I wanted to use with it.
The background is composed of lots of Shimmerz splatters – with yellows and blues (You could also use this one + this one) along with stitched sequins. The stitched sequins are the one element I really had envisioned and wanted to build from. My sequin mix of choice for this project is Rockin‘ Pink Ombre. I really really love monochromatic sequin mixes.
I also painted some Corky Cumulus clouds white and stitched them onto my page too.
I wanted the paper layers I chose to be a nice complement to the embellishments without being too distracting – I used several products from the Shimelle “Little by Little” collection along with a few Crate Paper things. I also had a “Wish” Thicker in my stash that went perfectly with this layout.
I tied in the black with some black stamping and then I was done! I really love how light and airy this project feels – perfect for spring.
Thanks for stopping by!
The Monday after losing an hour of sleep is always a hard one.. I’m here today with a colorful spring spread hoping to brighten the first day of your work week!
I really love capturing the details of our home.. I wanted to incorporate some floral prints into this spread of the new flower arrangement in our kitchen. I used several papers from the Felicity Jane “Jane” March kit.. my first one. I made a deal with myself that if I were subscribing to a new kit, I would do a better job of incorporating products that I already have.
I have lots of Shimmerz products from the shop hanging out in my craft room. I chose this shade of green to add a little detail to my spread (like those dots highlighting the “photos I love” journaling card) and create an ombre filler card. I absolutely love using Acri-Tonez with water – it creates a water-color look that still has a matte-like finish! So great!
Do you have some shimmerz Acri-Tonez in colors you struggle to use? Try using it in combination with water for a water-color effect. It really softens the color!
I thought cork products were the perfect balance for this spread – the natural tones worked well with the pastel color palette! I used arrows and hearts from the shop.
I love the layering of sequins (this mix!) on cork – and the staple just adds some whimsy! Fun fact, I keep forgetting to order tiny staples for my tiny AC stapler, so those are full sized staples.. HA. Also on my page are thickers from Amy Tangerine’s “Finders Keepers” and Dear Lizzy “Saturday” collections.
I really like how the page on the right looks without any pictures, really functioning as a pretty title page. Especially since the left side is so full of color.
Hope you felt inspired today!
