HI! new phrase at our house popping up is cra-cra! (public school gotta love it LOL) Anyway, I took this picture of Tucker in the backseat on our caride to the farm Easter weekend and it really sums up when he does his best Cra-Cra faces.
This was totally just an artsy experimenting design. I have been noticing sea scallop layers on everything lately and wanted to try my hand at my own. I love how it turned out!! All I did was take a glassine bag and cut it into 1 inch strips. I then accordian folded the stips and rounded off the end while it was folded. I unfolded the strips and layered them with adhessive one on top of the other and then stitched the top layer on for effect. I think it looks really cool and gives a fun texture!
See all the scallops featured in good old BHG magazine this month, that is just one spot I have seen them popping up. Keep your eyes peeled they are everywhere, especially in fashion right now. Next I am going to do a more girly layout with this same technique I came up with but out of pink tissue paper. I will share that in a future blog post here.
another fun element to the page was cutting up the handwritten text from Maggie Holmes Crate Paper collection sheet of paper to get it to say just what I wanted about these little moments and then sewing them on the layout.
Hope you enjoyed this and got some inspiration! Try it on your layouts, I would love to see what you come up with. Click on the paper and art tab above to see more of my work. Until next time, go make a beautiful mess of your paperlife!
