It's week #3 of the Natural Living kit! Time sure goes fast!
There were so many beautiful Basic Grey papers in the kit I wanted to showcase them all, but if I layered them, it might get overwhelming. I figured the best way was to use 3x3 inch squares of each piece and get the quilt effect. This layout will be a wonderful addition to my family album, such a perfect way to showcase so many pictures!
To make the letters pop, I used a white pen and outlined the Basic Grey alpha's. I don't know about you, but I have tried white pen after white pen. Sometime I can get it work for a while and they quit. Some pens dry up and some just don't work on certain types of paper. I think I have found a true and tried white pen. My white pen of choice is the SOUFFLE-3D OPAQUE PEN. After the ink dries, the ink comes out in a raised embossed look and really pops!
Check out the detailing on the felt embellishments!
and of course, I can't have a page without stitching. Notice the brown and green thread. This is what's happens when you forget to change the bobbin thread color. I guess we'll call this a happy mistake because I like the end result-give the thread more texture.
Next week is our Monthly Challenge at BlueMoon and I have to say I had a great time with it ! I'll share 1 ity bity peek of my project...
Can you figure out what the challenge is from this peek?
See you later!
