I couldn’t bring myself to cut up this gorgeous paper from My Mind’s Eye. It is like a ready made scrapbook sketch and I used it just like that. Not wanting to take away anything from the subtle colors in the paper, I used black and white photos. I cut down a couple of the photos to a rectangle shape and my 1-3/4″ circle punch was the perfect size for the round frame.
I cut up one of the vellum cards from Studio Calico and placed them on top of a few frames. I painted a bit of pearlescent watercolor inside those frames to highlight the vellum pieces. I used lots of different pieces from the kit including a piece of the April printable, the exclusive stamp, the acrylic numbers and letter stickers for my daughter’s age, initial and nickname. After trimming the background down just a bit, I stitched it all to a piece of cardstock from the kit.
Thanks so much for stopping by today…I’d love to see how you use this piece of patterned paper for your scrapbook pages. Share it with us on the Scrapbook Circle Facebook page so we can all see it! Have a great weekend!
