Hello wonderful scrappy friends!
Today I have another layout to share with you. I’m especially in love with this one because I experimented with a few new things and I also used some beautiful pieces I’ve been hoarding for some time now.
But first thing first. The main inspiration came from a Heidi Swapp paper (from her Memory Planner, Hello Gorgeous collection). The paper was full of little pastel rectangles and I thought it will be fun to cut some of them to put on my page.
Most of the supplies I used for this one can be found at theinkroad.com and you can always get 10% discount on the shop using the code “ZINIA10“.
I started on a white base and did some hand-stitching to add some texture to my background. I wanted it to look like playful balloon strings without the actual balloon at the end.
Then I started playing around with my photo cluster. I pulled my color palette from that Heidi Swapp paper so I grabbed some scraps and embellishments that were matching with those colors. I mostly kept things light and slightly muted, with a little bit of brighter shades here and there.
I used some neutral pieces from the Maggie Holmes Confetti ephemera pack and layered them together with some scraps from the Goldie collection journaling cards.
I also used a book page to add even more interest in my cluster. For the embellishing part, I used a couple random bits I had in my stash like the floral chipboard piece and the wire vine.
To cover a bit of my white space I added some delicate black ink splatters and also use a couple enamel dots.
Then I wanted to mount my page on a dark paper to add some border around it but I decided that it will be more interesting to bring that darker color only from the corner. I took a deep breath and ripped my page and then stuck it on top of a black and white striped paper.
I have to admit that ripping the page was really scary but luckily in the end it all worked out perfectly.
