Hello again crafty friends!
So January was pretty awesome. Thanks to my friends at Treasured Memories, I got an invite to Creativation 2020 and got to meet and hug-it-out with sweet and lovely Paige Taylor Evans!
Naturally, I wanted to save that special memory to a layout and chose to design with Paige’s colourful Pick Me Up collection. It’s from a bit ago but I still love working with it.
I wanted to use one of Paige’s Sketch & Stitch® files to design something as special as the moment was to me. I went with her gorgeous Geometric Background. If you haven’t already, do watch this video where Paige shows you how to set up your Cameo 3 to use these fabulous files.
Once my Cameo was done, I used Prima watercolours from Pastel Dreams to add a loose triangular shape to my background. Can you see it?
After a fair bit of stitching with three colours of DMC floss and metallic thread, I was thrilled with the results.
Adding all the pretties is always so much fun. I made the gorgeous flowers with more of Paige’s cut files, Layered Flower and Leaves #311424 and Layered Flower #271164. They add so much dimension and texture to my page. Then, I piled on the goodies from the Ephemera Pack to fill in my vignettes.
Please join me at Paige’s Blog for all the product and paper details. While you’re there, you can check out other Design Team creations. These talented ladies continue to inspire me every single day.
Thank you so much for coming by, see you again soon!
PS, Here’s what I do to iron out any wavey paper after watercolouring 😀
