Hello again crafty friends!
Today, I’m sharing a layout I did as a fun challenge for International Scrapbook Day.
Challenge #1, at Paige Taylor Evans’ Facebook Group, Happy Scrappy Place, was a monochromatic design.
Naturally, “think pink”, fell from my lips as I sorted through all the delicious Paige Evans’ collections.
This mix is mostly from Paige’s latest collection for Pink Paislee called Horizon. I am entirely smitten. I was inspired to choose Paige’s Layered Heart cut-file. Find it at her Etsy Shop and at the Silhouette Studio Store.
I also appreciated how fast it cut out because I decided to make a wreath using eight layered hearts. I planned to sew the layers together and gathered my tools and threads.
Initially, I choose a pink embroidery floss but decided it got lost on the pink paper and changed it to gold. What colour would you have use?
After sewing the hearts together, I lightly traced a lunch plate onto white American Crafts cardstock. My plan was to create a mixed media background to lay my hearts on.
Guess what? I changed my mind again. For me, the page became too busy. It’s all part of the process and I never feel like it’s time wasted. It’s just fun to try new things and I’ll save it for another layout.
In the end, with the background white, I played up the boarder by framing it in a bright pink and sewed on sequins. Even though my wreath is round, I added all the other items in a diagonal, from top left to bottom right. The hearts were also mounted on foam to add depth. Finally, I ruffled up each heart for maximum texture. Again, here’s my finished layout.
Thank you so much for coming by!
