A little thing called happiness


Following on from yesterdays layout using strips from the doodled borders paper in my July Like For Ever kit, this layout uses the little bits that didn't make it on to the first page!


I played around with Shimmerz on the background, and added quite a lot of black ink splats.


The offcuts were matted on to vellum or tissue paper, and some carried the title and date.


I thought, even though the black is integral to the design, I had over done it, and lost the balance.  I felt it needed more white so I added a few messy tangles of white thread, and I think I pulled it back!

The rub ons I used for the title were lovely to use.  It's always a worry when you pull out the rub ons - will they work?  Will the crack and be patchy and ruin my layout?  Luckily these one were good.  Now to use up the rest of the packet before they go off!!

  2. Lovely LO! I like the the stack design and the texture the threads give.

  3. I think the black splatters work well. They pair up with the black in the patterned paper, but because there's so much white space, it's not unbalanced, I don't think. Pinning this -- really cool design. :)
