So after wearing my green heart (read about that here and here) I knew I wanted to add it to a layout.
And I was obviously feeling really green! I do love the colour green and find it fun to use but, as you know, I like a good dose of white with any colour I use. This one has a maximum of half a dose of white!!
I used Spun Sugar Shimmerz Dazzlerz texture paste through a stencil in the backgound and scribbling with a white Posca paint pen. I used vellum - a sort-of shade of white - along with glassine bag (another white) and doily (yet another shade of white) layers. I used white, silver and green 3mm ribbon. And the silver bugle beads are practically white too... (they aren't. They are definitely silver.)
I decided to be brave and journal straight to the vellum. Mistake. The paint pen did a little wee and I was left with a puddle instead of an 'a' - I blotted and made the best of it, but, sigh!
Looking at my style/trend I would say I am currently enjoying doilies, glassine and vellum, and lots of dimensional layers. Obviously I still love ribbon and try to work it in to most projects. Also I notice layouts without or with very little patterned paper flow so much more easily out of me than layouts that are patterned paper heavy. Always interesting to notice how I am changing.
Thanks for stopping by!
