Hi friends, it’s Lisa back on the blog today! A few weeks ago, I was scrolling through Pinterest looking at all sorts of things when this layout by Paige Evans appeared on my screen:
I’m sure I’ve seen it before of course but in that moment I was so amazed by it and I loved it so much that I saved it on my phone and decided that I would scraplift it. So here’s my version of it…
Paige used a patterned paper with this ombre stripe pattern. I didn’t want to use the same one and of course I wanted some pinks in my background. So I chose five different patterned papers, cut them into strips, and adhered them to my 12×12 sheet.
Then I took my white paint marker and splattered some white paint on the whole background.
To write my message/title, I used a lot of papers from the Whimsical collection. First, I cut out rectangles and placed them on the different strips to see in which order I wanted the colors and patters to go. Then I hand-cut the letters out of them and adhered them on the background.
For my pictures, I used a couple I took at Creativation a week before. There’s one of me with Paige and the other one shows Missy, Enza, Paige, and me. I had such a great time there!!! I matted the photos on some scraps of patterned papers and placed them on the layout.
I used some of Paige’s mini foam Thickers from the Whimsical collection to write “Creativation 2019” beneath one of the pictures and then I used a whole lot of different embellishments to decorate the page. I took some puffy stickers, some chipboard and cardstock stickers, and ephemera pieces and placed them on or around the letters. I really love how it turned out!
Thank you so much for being here!
