Hello everyone! My name is Zinia and I am really thrilled and honored to join the Pink Paislee Design Team for 2017 and share my work with you. Before I get carried away and start tiring you with my excitement let’s get down to business!
This first week on the Pink Paislee blog, we put ourselves under the spotlight, so I thought I would use this opportunity and introduce myself through a layout.
For a few years now, I keep a big corkboard in my room where I pin anything that I cannot get rid of. That includes photos, memorabilia, pretty packaging, stickers, ribbons, keychains, and more. It can be anything that holds a memory, serves as inspiration, or just looks too pretty to throw away. So inspired by that I decided to create a pinboard-inspired layout.
I chose some of the gorgeous papers from the Pink Paislee “Oh My Heart” collection to use as my background and to use as the frame of my board. Then for the middle section, I just used a piece of white cardstock.
To fill my board, I went through all the embellishments from “Oh my Heart” and picked a few of my favorite bits. I tried to focus on elements that brought a special meaning to my layout like the chipboard fairytale book cause I still believe in fairies, the washi tower sticker cause who doesn’t love washi, a makeup palette I cut out of a 12×12 paper cause it looks like watercolors and I’m obsessed with paints and mixed media products.
I also used the stamp and notepad set to create a customized note for my board for my journaling. I filled in the gaps with other small embellishments that worked with the concept like the tiny clipboards that came in one of the cut apart papers and some phrase strips.
I really hope you enjoyed this layout and got inspired to create a beautiful page about yourself. Until next time, happy scrapping :).
