Here is the second page I created Scraptastic's October kit, Never Tear Us Apart. Although it features a photo of three boys, my son and his cousins, I didn't hesitate to use pink.
A large swath of pink woodgrain paper was layered over the background sheet of kraft. Corners of the paper are turned in to expose the pink and grey chevron print on the reverse. I love how the mix of soft colors compliments my photo.
A cross-stitcher from way back, I couldn't wait to punch holes and stitch over the heart shape on the woodgrain accent card (cut from one of the patterned papers in the add-on). Thread was chosen in a blue color pulled from the other patterned papers. It really stands out against the dark woodgrain print.
Do you see those colorful "diamond" print strips that run across the top and bottom of the pink woodgrain patterned paper? They weren't originally diamonds.
The strips were strategically cut from the hexagon print paper in the kit. The hexagons were too big and busy for what I wanted to do with them. Cutting them down into diamonds was the perfect solution!
When scrapping the guys in your life, do you embrace the pink?
