I love paper. And stationery. And arty things. So many things I love and so little time to make all the projects. 🙂
One of the recent releases of paper at my local scrapbook store was from Penelope Dee (Indigo). It was just too gorgeous. Soft, watercolour-y and just beautiful.
I have so many photos I need to scrap, and just have not had the time. In fact, it is worse than that. I have not even printed them yet. this is part of what makes it difficult to scrap because I am not an experienced scrapbook-er and so far, have copied layouts or been to classes. I am feeling more and more confident even though (arguably) my skill has not improved, and so I am just pushing forward.
Today Colin and I spent a lazy day just sitting together doing our own thing in the same room. He was fiddling with his PC and I was scrapping.
Here is my one-page layout using the paper. I inked the edges of the pieces, and also cut out the white frame along the flower lines. I am not usually a huge fan of fussy cutting, but it seemed to need something and I think it worked out quite well. I also fussy cut the hydrangeas from the element sheet and stuck them as a focused cluster on the right bottom portion.
The white flowers also seemed a little plain so I used my watercolour pencils to darken the points with dark blue and a soft orange for the inner petal. I used a wet wipe to move the colour around and get rid of most of the pencil lines.
I think it turned out quite well.
Wishing you all a lovely and peaceful weekend, and if you are celebrating Easter, may it be a blessed one.
Thank you for popping in, and see you soon.
