This was by far one of my favorite page spreads to work on!
Ingredients: Sewing pattern paper, Kelly Bangs’ “Let’s Get Crafty” collection, and…well, that’s about it!
Actually, I added some white paper doilies to fill space. My pages tend to get a bit busy and I really wanted to pop the hexes I cut out of that scrapbook paper you see in the background. The tag was a paper piece from another sheet of paper from this collection. I just trimmed it, punched a hole at the top, added the spool ephemera, a flower and a phrase strip. Boom, done!
As you can see, I added a bit of embroidery thread to the tag for a fun touch. That’s my idea of mixed media! When you break my pages down you realize they are actually pretty simple. Just a bit of layering with elements pulled to the edge of the page to give an illusion of movement, pulling your eyes around the page…well at least that’s the best way I can explain it.
As usual, if you need clarification please leave a question in the comments. Sometime I don’t even know what I’m talking about!
I hope you are liking this series as much as I am!
And as always,
Thank you for stopping by,
Have a great day,
