I decided to work on one of my layouts for my April layout class at the LSS next month. I pulled out some papers that I picked out at the store last night. I wasn't sure how they would work, but I am super happy with the end result.
Lately I've been doing a little more mixing of manufacturers in terms of paper choices. Sometimes for my class I need to use some older papers that we have plenty of and pair them with something to make them look fresh and new again.
Here I mixed a Spring 07 release from Scenic Route (the tree) with some new Dream Street (blue polka dots) and new Pink Paislee (graph paper and stripes). I also added in an Oliver owl stamp from Sassafras Lass (just because I can't get enough of them!). The tree was cut out and mounted on foam tape to give it a little extra dimension. I also punched some holes and threaded some orange rick rack through. The title is drawn freehand and cut out.
Thanks for peeking!
