Hello sweet friends! It’s so close to spring and all the beautiful new collections have arrived in my craft room. The most anticipated is by Paige Evans, it’s called Horizon.
It’s a gorgeous mix of rainbow colours with travel and garden inspired ephemera. As always Paige’s collections are very versatile. I’ve used it this week with a brand new cut-file by Paige, gifted in her first New’s Letter. Be sure to sign up!
Of course, I needed the background to complimented what I planned within the cut-file and tried a number of Paige’s papers from different collections. Do you see any you would pick?
I almost always like to use a patterned paper in the background but nothing jumped out at me. Then, I dropped it on a white sheet of cardstock.
“Yes, that’s the one”, I thought. I’ve often admire this ‘white on white’ technique done by some of my favourite designers, including Rachel Lowe of Scrapbooking Our Journey and Lorilei Murphy of Rosey Posey Studio’s. They’re so talented and generous, you’ll want to pop in on them too! I decided to add some light touches of water-colouring. It’s a new thing for me, so I was gentle.
I added colour with a plan of, tone on tone. Pink behind a pink flower, blue behind blue and so on. I was apprehensive, but was happy with the result.
It’s your’s truly having a flat white in Sydney, Australia last February 😀 Now, that’s my idea of a great adventure!
Thank’s so much for visiting, see you again soon.
PS, This made my day. Paige included me in her stories yesterday!!!
I’m still walking on air ❤
