Hello again sweet friends! You’ve probably heard, I got to spend time in Denver this summer with Paige Taylor Evans and Andrea Lake at their Splendid Weekend Event. There were lot’s of fun classes and a magical visit to Paige’s beautiful craft room too! Yes way!
I also got to meet so many crafty friends including this sweetheart, Ramie Gibbs of @Justramiebeingcrafty. This is one of the most kind and generous girls around who also just got a new grandson! We took this photo just before I had to leave. Of course I wanted a layout to celebrate our time spent together. The smile banner, from the Epoxy Stickers, is perfect because Ramie has the best smile!!
I have two new Youtubes up today, the first will show you how I made my background in the Silhouette Design Studio using Paige’s Doily Cut File #228016 .
I paper-backed the Circle Doily with beautiful colour from Paige’s Splendid Collection with the idea of making a colour wheel. For example, green and yellow makes lime, pink and blue makes mauve and so on.
After the papers where added, I chain stitched the entire doily with complementary DMC floss using only 5 strands on my needle.
Layering everything as I went along with either liquid glue or 3D foam tape for extra dimension.
For the most part, I tried to keep my embellishments tone on tone so it wasn’t too busy looking. Finally, I added the tiny bits I add to every layout, Sequins & Enamel Shapes , dots of gold paint and gold Stickles and gold thread from my stash.
You can watch it all come together at my Process Video on my YouTube Channel!
