Hi Scrappy Friends! I’m a bit late this morning, but I have another guest layout for the Use Your Stuff to share with you today. The challenge for this week is Bohemian with lots of rich patterns and embellishments. I’ll be very honest…this was really a challenge for me. I am generally a clean and simple girl so what I tried to combine the two styles and I think I did ok!
The base is American Crafts black textured yardstick. I buy their big packs so I’m not running to the store every week for more base colors. The patterned paper and embellishments are from the Carta Bella collection Amour. It’s a very french collection and the rich patterns suited the theme well.
The doily base is from Amazon, and you’ll probably see a ton of those on my layouts going forward as you have to buy them in packs of 1,000! White was too stark against the black background so I sprayed it with some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Bush…it’s my favorite girl color lately.
The layout is finished off with some of my homemade enamel dots, gold color shine splatters, gold thicker title (by Crate Paper) and some Tim Holtz tiny word stickers.
So tell me….did I mix enough to meet the theme!?
