Today I'm sharing two pages that were featured on the American Crafts blog last week.
On this first page, I took clues from the photo for my color scheme, and ended up with lots of blues, as well as a few distinctive pops of red. A fun accent is the garland that runs across the page, where hearts, punched from one of the patterned papers, were sewn together and popped up with adhesive dots. The title combines a negative die-cut with corrugated Thickers that were embellished with a brushing of glitter glue.
The second page combines one photo with two decorative elements.
Supplies (all by American Crafts): Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm patterned paper, 5th and Frolic patterned paper, twine, Knock-Outs border punch, Precision Pen, and Thickers.
A layered circular accent features a fussy cut mason jar with heart, branch, banners and twine, a punched border and lots of machine stitching to hold it all together.
The bottom half of the page holds a fringe of woven paper, whose colors bring out those in the photo.
Both of these layouts demonstrate ways to embellish a page using nothing more than patterned paper!
