I created this layout because I have printed way too many photos for my Project Life (not again!!!). So I decided to use them for a layout. The woodgrain paper from Color Conspiracy is simply perfect for the pictures of my dog peeking out from the wooden gate. Those pictures are just too cute to not scrap them right?
Again, I am determined to use up those sticker labels from Jenni Bowlin Studio from my Studio Calico January kit. So I lined them up next to the photos vertically and adding some ribbons, tags from Amy Tangerine 'Sketchbook', stickers and washi tapes. This layout is heavily inspired by Wilna Furstenberg (my scrap idol) with her way of arranging embellies on a page & stitching layout creatively. You might not be able to see clearly here but I actually made an effort to stitch some ruffled crepe papers under the photos.
p/s: Do you notice the little chipboard birdie on the top left corner? It's so apt because Marco (the dog on the top) waters (okay, I mean fertilizes) the guava tree everyday that those little birdies comes visiting everyday.
Here's the title of the layout. Stamp with Versamark and heat embossed with Zing Gold powder.
No journaling added on this layout as those tiny yellow stickers pretty much tell you the character of each dog.
Her name is Happy Girl so the sticker is so apt ;)
My ♥♥ for my messy + wonky stitches. It seems I can't complete a layout or PL spread without adding some machine stitching recently.
I whipped out this layout under two hours. The most time consuming part would be trying to stitch the ruffled crepe papers before adding anything else. Too bad the amount of time & effort I have spent doesn't justify the texture of the crepe papers added. Once the stitching work is done, the rest of the layout came up pretty quickly. I think I will definitely scrap another similar layout by placing the embellies vertically / horizontally next to the photos. Call me a weirdo but I just love using up those stuff that I have gotten from a kit else I tend to hoard them for no reason.
Thanks for looking, XoXo.
