Here is a (long time un-blogged) layout created for NSD. The Like For Ever challenge was 'use your STASH' - so use something beginning with each letter of the word stash.
I picked Stitching, Triangles, All of the rub ons, Stickers and Handful of sequins. I used up the rest of a sheet of rub ons and then used the backing cut in to triangles - nothing goes to waste here!
My stitching is rarely straight. ;)
I felt the green sticker on the photo was screaming out too much being the only green in the layout so I added a few enamel dots in the same colour in a couple of places around the page.
These sequins were part of a Things That Shine kit.
And the pink floral pieces - yep, I cut up a stencil. It was a Dear Lizzy stencil and it just wasn't up to the job. It was too flimsy for anything other than just spraying mists through. I like to scrape paste over stencils, this stencil was just getting bent and ruined by my heavy-handed-ness (not that I am particularly heavy handed!) I actually really liked it used like this and contemplated buying another stencil purely to cut up!!
Overall I am really not sure I like the layout... Constructive criticism very welcome (please!)
