Funny combination, right? LOL! THis is what happens when you jump around when you scrap AND you want to use the items you pulled from your stash for the Use It or Lose It challenge!
First up, I used the MME “29th Street Market”. It was a solid purple, but flipped it over, and it was this really pretty (busy) damask print. Kind of vintage looking. So I used that piece, tearing it into a wide strip as part of my background.
I went with the whole purple monochromatic look for this layout, to match the dresses in these pics. They were take a few years ago at a wedding. I also used twine (wrapped around the photo) and my WRMKs SewEasy Circle to stitch the very large circle. Both the SewEasy and the pattern paper are from my March Use It or Lose It post.
The other items I used on this layout are washi tapes (Queen & Co), a stencil I created using my cricut, mists (Tattered Angels), paper clips (Freckled Fawn), flowers (Bo Bunny), bling (Zva Creative) and alphas (Webster’s Pages).
Here is a close up of those flowers:
My second layout is about my cousin who passed out after the big Thanksgiving Dinner from 2014. His mom took this picture and its priceless! I used gelatos in snow cone, metallic blueberry, pistachio, and aqua dolce to create my very messy background. I chose to use the packaging technique:
I then added several little stamps from Basic Grey and Close To My Heart (LOVE those splatters!)
The stickers are all from Bo Bunny – “Welcome Home” and “ETC” collection, both items are from my original March Use It Or Lose It Challenge. I did try the Bo Bunny rub-ons from my February Use It or Lost It post and those rub-ons would not work at all. I guess they were just too old.
My alphas are from SEI and washi tapes are from Glitz Designs and Love My Tapes.
My messy background was perfect for the Make a Mess Challenge over at ACOT. You can use gelatos, mists, inks, watercolors – just make a mess!
