Today I'll share the first two pages that I created. I didn't use sketches for these and let the product guide me through the design. It was fun to work a grid of sorts although, I did realize afterwards that I basically duplicated the design twice. LOL
It's hard for me to see cross stitches without adding a few, so I did! The "Be Happy" title was cut out of one of the chalkboard patterned sheets of paper. They are terrific bang for the buck with so much that can be cut from them!
The chipboard frames didn't come with the kit but worked so well with it. They sure have a lot of potential for embellishment. More than just for framing photos.
The splattered paper is actually packaging that came that way. Too beautiful to throw away. Lots of naked buttons on these pages. I'm breaking my own rules that all buttons need to be sewn on! These ones came with adhesive on the back and it is hard to peel it off to sew through it. I guess I can live with it. ;)
Love the wood veneer words! Playing with negative space here. The journaling card with the gold circle was actually an advertisement card in the kit. I just punched the words out of the middle and backed it with the blue patterned paper. This allowed me to tuck the red circular element under.
I'll be back soon with the two remaining pages created with the kit.
