Hi ! I'm up on the Paper Issues blog today with a layout that I created using Dear Lizzy's Serendipity collection and the January Sketch by Jen Chapin.
I love the aqua, navy and pinks in this collection! If you limit the pink and add a bit of the yellow included in the collection you can get a more masculine feel to your layout, too. I love the versatility of this collection!
Pop dots and stitching to add interest and texture. I also added a few things from my stash (most of which were actually from past Swag Bags).
I love these alphas! Gah! I may need to purchase some more!
And finally, it's all about the story. I used my new-to-me typewriter with some vellum to document the story that goes with these photos. I added the vellum over the patterned paper and sewed it in to place. The vellum helps tone down the paper a bit so that the text is more visible.
You can link your layout based on Jen's sketch to the Paper Issues blog, too. You could win a gift card to the Paper Issues store. While you're there, you can use the code 'orangegearle' for 20% off your entire purchase.
Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon!
