As soon as I saw this paper in the DCWV ‘all dressed up’ stack I instantly fell in love with it. The subtle tones of blues and greens work well together and the swirly flourish pattern adds a feminine touch to a traditionally more masculine colour palate – not to mention the glamour that oozes from this pre-glittered paper. I covered the chipboard with this beautiful paper whilst ooh-ing and aah-ing and then suddenly, I cringed! How could I add embellishments to this page without taking away from the design that I loved so much?
After a lot of to-ing and fro-ing, and more hmm-ing and ahh-ing, this finished page is one of my favourites in the whole book. I used little epoxy stickers from the Brenda Walton Small Wonders line from K & Co to spell out the street name and a velour monogram sticker from the DCWV Christmas speciality sticker stack to frame and highlight the first letter of the word. The soft texture of this sticker contrasts with the glossy finish of both the green scalloped chipboard circle frame underneath (from Bisous) and also the shiny glittery parts on the paper. Being the tactile person that I am, I love the addition of texture, and wanted more, more, more. So along came the fabric ‘moxie fab stickers’ from Making Memories (with a quick and easy rub on adhered on top), and a vinyl thickers sticker from American Crafts. I hope you like this page too. Thanks for looking and come back tomorrow to see the next house in my life.
A different flat – different flat mate! Living with Pickle was a challenge @ times – with his ‘funny’ T-shirts, his milk obsession & opinionated views! Still, I did enjoy those evenings @ the pub watching Roddy Hart & Palamino play live. I must confess my fondest memory of Annbank Street is that it was in this flat that I first started to Scrapbook & make cards. It all started with one small box of supplies!!
