Scrapbooking | FTLOPP

Happy New Year!  What better way to start than by kicking depression in the butt and scrapbooking?

I've been joining in with the FTLOPP Birthday Party challenges.  This one is 'use lots of a single embellishment' - I plumped for paper stars.

This layout uses some of what I think is my oldest paper.  It's from Studio Calico circa 2012.  Just a tiny bit left now which will go in my scraps box.

The feature of the layout is these origami stars.  I was inspired by Morag who recently used some on a layout.  The tutorial she followed is here.  When I try a new origami pattern I see how small I can make it.  I got to a finished size of 16mm... I attempted one that was 15mm but it really didn't have the definition or crispness.  Paper folding is also the theme of the month at UKSA so it ties in nicely with that too.

Supplies are pretty minimal besides the patterned paper.  Less but chosen well, I hope.  Gold Shimmerz paint in the background, thread nests in yolk-y yellow, sequins aplenty... 

and a sentiment sticker.  To be honest the whole layout for me is about the sentiment sticker.  It is from Pretty Little Studio as are the alpha tile stickers which spell out 'just the way you are'.

No video for this but I hope to get backing to making them soon.

Thanks for stopping by.
