Sooooo, here is the last page I managed to make for Shimelle's cropping weekend. I enter it for challenge #11: Two Patterns. The goal was to mix two contrasting patterns. I chose a photo that had been sitting in my stash for quite a while because I knew which PP I wanted to use: the "Olivia" collection by BG.
So, here is my take:
And a few close-ups:
|To make this embellishment, I folded in 4|
four doilies, I put some ink. Then, I covered
a circle with silver paint and wanted to heat-set it.
I ABSOLUTELY didn't know this would happen
but I was REALLY happy with the results! Love
|Also made those embellies. I used Shimelle aka Glitter|
Girl's tutorial to create them. The brads are all from the
Kraft Funday collection by MME.
|Made the small tag with a Tim Holtz Alterationsdie.|
For the big one, I stamped the back of a MME one
with a Fiskars stamp and Jenni Bowlin ink in Cough syrup.
|Cut the small letters with my "Blackboard Blues Alphabet" |
|Those small beautiful letters are from the|
Fabulous collection by Simple Stories
* The Olivia papers
* The paint behind the picture
* The doilies
* The tag
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THIS LO
* The bold colours
* The washiiiii (under the red PP)
* The handmade embellies. I think they had a lot to this LO without costing much
* I used a border PP as a background, and I think it totally works
Thanks for looking and have a great week! :)
