Sesil here to start off the week. This week's theme will be "SO LUCKY"
Here is my take on being 'lucky'. I wanted to challenge myself to use a mix of old and new. So that is what I did. I grabbed some green pattern papers from the Teresa Collins Spring Fling Collection and mixed it up with the He Said Collection. Another challenge I did was to make a simple layout in less than 30 minutes. I wanted to show how easy it is to scrapbook in a short amount of time.
As you see I didn't have time to sew on my page so I simply just took a black pen and drew my lines on the perimeter of the papers. I also outlined my title to give it the consistency and to make the title pop off the page. I love using my electronic die cutter for my titles. It insures that the title will match my layout.
When I adhered all my elements to the page I used foam squares through out my page. I wanted it to make the layout feel like it had a bit of movement and dimension and not so FLAT. Using foam squares gives it just the right look.
Another thing I used in the layout were sequins. I don't like using sprays because it stains my hands. But I love the look so I created the same look with the sequins. It gives it just enough interest and a little sparkle.
Who says you can not mix up collections? The beautiful thing about Teresa Collins Designs papers is the collections can interchange with other collections and still have a cohesive look and feel to the whole layout. Give it a try. I challenge you to use different papers from different collections and post them to our Facebook page or post a link in the comment section of this post. You never know. We may feature your work in one our or posts.
