Hello there, My Scraps friends! Missy back with you today. I have a layout to share that I created for last week's Mix it Up Monday challenge over on our forums. The challenge was to create a diagonal design of some sort, write your journaling diagonally and to include some triangles. I have been waiting to dig into the new Pinkfresh Studio Happy Things collection, and this triangle paper has been calling my name! I love the colors in it, and so I used about half of it and adhered it to white cardstock. Using only part of a busy paper is a great way to not overpower the entire layout. I added inks, sprays and gelatos to the cardstock and did some stamping with a triangle stamp.
This layout also includes some items from Evalicious, which you can find in the store HERE.
This flair button and yellow circle sticker are from Evalicious. I love all the tid bits you can get...including wood veneer as well. I traced over the white letters on the yellow sticker to make them stand out a bit more.
I used a T-square ruler to draw my journaling lines with a pencil to make sure they would be straight. I also used some of the Dear Lizzy American Crafts stencils from Rise & Shine collection and some Mustard Seed Distress Ink to create the yellow words on the background.
Here is a close-up of the watercolor background. I added more triangles with a stamp. I "stamped off" which means I just kept stamping each time until the ink was off the stamp. It creates a faded look.
I combined the Pinkfresh Studio black glitter Thickers with some American Crafts transparent alphas for my title. I love combining different fonts like this :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Have a great weekend!
