this layout was actually on the jillibean soup blog last week. just didn't get around to sharing it. i really love this layout! it's got my cute girl on it. it's got all my favorite colors. it's a fun take on the collage style i love to do. it's got fun embellishments. and i even tried out some new techniques.
this page design was a long time in the making. a few years ago, i had sketched out this page that i wanted to do. it had random blocks of paper, all different sizes, with two photos mixed in. i had where the title should be, and which papers would have embellishments on them. and i saved that piece of paper, which has been tucked in to a basket on my magnetic board on my wall. when i pulled out these papers and product, i knew i finally wanted to use that sketch.
and check me out. i machine stitched on my papers. i LOVE the look of machine stitching. i even bought a nice sewing machine about 5 years ago. i had used my profits from one of my classes i taught at the lss to purchase it. and then i used it once, and that was it. lol! but we now have an empty desk upstairs in the loft, and i figured it was good spot to set it up. i'm thinking if it's out, i'm more likely to use it. ignore the wonky stitching on these blocks of paper. first time on a machine in years, but i'm learning.
for the flowers, i used some of the jillibean soup canvas flowers and the corrugated flowers. i used studio calico mister huey's color mists on the canvas flowers, and then used a coordinating acrylic paint from making memories on the corrugated flowers. used a few tiny white flower brad to secure them all together.
and i didn't forget the giveaway winners! thanks to everyone for participating. i turned to the random number generator, to pick two numbers.
