Playing With Pink Paislee
I wanted to put a layout together for this picture of my grandbaby. When I saw the Pink Paislee line, I knew it would be fun and work really well for this picture (to me). The line has a sheet of die cuts including the frame shapes. I punched them out and then had them laying on the paper while I punched out some of the smaller die cut shapes. A happy accident. I have a lot of those. As I looked at the paper frames laying there, I saw that it might be cute to overlap them and have them overlapping and angled on the page. So that is what I did.
I left this as a one picture layout, but it could hold several pictures 4x6 sizes. I made a little chipboard backing and painted it with the Tim Holtz blue (broken china) crackle paint. Along the left side I stamped with a Fancy Pants stamp, using Nick Bantock inks in green leaf, rose madden and a yellow. I tried to get the pink on the flower portions and the green on the stems, and then I put yellow over all of it, it almost looks like I did it on one of those rainbow/spectrum ink pads. I really like the brightness of the Bantock inks.
Anyway. Quick, easy and I used two sheets of paper and the sheet of die cuts. Show me something you made this week!
