I love the look of kraft cardstock with red and black. I love the colour kits from Gauche Alchemy. I love glimmer mists. I love machine stitching on scrapbook pages. And I adore my niece’s little girl, Tess.
So I couldn’t fail to make a layout that I love:
First I made a shield shaped mask out of copy paper and temporarily adhered it to the cardstock. Then I used the plastic grid mesh (from the Wholey Sheet kit) as a stencil to spray the glimmer mist through. I love the imperfections you get spraying the mist through the grid. I then machine stitched around the shape to help define it.
I used some of the sequin trim as a centre for the flower and machine stitched the flower details around it. Similarly, I machine stitched around the fruit punch embellishment at the top.
Lastly I added some extra embellishments from the Scarlet Fever color kit and the journaling.
It’s a simple layout, using lots of my favourite things, and it’s now one of my favourite layouts.
What things do you love to use on a layout?
