Pink Paislee Portfolio Layout
I was in the mood for creating something NOT girly (for a change), when the Pink Paislee Portfolio collection caught my eye yesterday. I thought it would really suit a photo of my handsome stepson Jayden. I'm so lucky to have such a lovely, photogenic boy in my life and I didn't even have to give birth to him!
The adorable Maya Road banner had been calling my name so I grabbed a pack of those and some Pink Paislee Artisan Elements that I'd also been wanting to try. There are lots of ways you can customise the white Artisan Elements to suit your projects. I simply dabbed these border strips with an ink pad and cut them up. I really enjoyed using them and plan to try some of the other varieties now. The alphas I've used are Prima and American Crafts thickers, and then I embellished with a few cute little wood veneer stars from Studio Calico (coming soon).You might have noticed the newsprint acetate peeking out from underneath the layers? That's actually from the Kaisercraft Periwinkle collection and it's so versatile. I must have more.
Well that's it for now. I've been feeling super inspired to make lots of cards lately so that's probably what I'll have to share next time. I have a few Twiddleybitz beyond the page ideas floating around in my head too. I hope you're having a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
