Hello there! It’s Elodie on the blog today and I’m delighted to be back to share a new Pink Paislee project with you. I had fun with the beautiful Pick-Me-Up collection and made a bright page all about my youngest daughter dressed up as a flamenco dancer for Halloween a few years ago. So sweet!
To go with this happy photo of my girl, I went with a colorful background and chose the reverse side of Paper 5. How pretty is this combination of colors? I love it!
First, I cut strips at the bottom of several 12×12 papers, cut them again in different sizes, bent them up a bit and placed them on the background paper following the stitching pattern. I then matted the photo with a sheet from the 6×6 paper pad and I adhered it at the bottom of the page where the paper strips meet.
For this layout, I wanted to focus on color and went with a tone-on-tone design. Using die cuts from the Pick-Me-Up ephemera pack as templates, I drew hearts in several pink, red, and beige papers from the 6×6 and 12×12 paper pads. I cut them using craft scissors, bent them up to make them stand out from the background, and placed them on their matching color. I like the dimension they give to the page!
I embellished some hearts with cute rub-ons, a couple of die cuts, and cardstock & chipboard stickers.
I also adorned my sweet picture with tone-on-tone embellies. I tucked a doily, a journaling card, a sticker, and a floral die cut under the photo and I used another die cut for the title.
Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope you are inspired to give this tone-on-tone technique a try and play with the colorful Pick-Me-Up collection!
