Today we have lovely and talented Paige Taylor Evans on the blog shining our Happy Things Collection products.
HAPPY PLACE by Paige Evans
DESCRIPTION: I've been on a "pile all the things into a collage" kick lately! Here I layered everything down the center of this fabulous patterned paper.
JOURNALING SAYS: Colmar, France is such a dream - so many cute and colorful buildings everywhere! Straight out of Beauty and the Beast!
HOW TO: It's sort of like a puzzle to do this technique: pick out all of the elements you want to use, along with a photo and title, and then have fun collaging them down the center of a patterned paper background. Journal right on a fabric tag. Drop black India ink around three places for a visual triangle.
SUPPLIES: Patterned paper, wood veneer, stickers, rubber embellishments, fabric tags: Pinkfresh Studio; India ink: ProArt; Adhesive, pen: American Crafts
TULIPS OF AMSTERDAM by Paige Evans
DESCRIPTION: Those triangles tho!! I love patterned transparency triangles and ALL of the triangles printed on one of the patterned papers. I cut them out and challenged myself to use them on a layout.
JOURNALING SAYS: Collect memories not things.
HOW TO: Trim out all the triangles from one of the Happy Things patterned papers then glue them along with the patterned transparency triangles onto a white cardstock base. Layer a pair of photos over transparency cards onto the center of the layout and tuck embellishments underneath the edges. Make the title with letter stickers and write "of" with a black pen to finish.
SUPPLIES: Patterned paper, patterned transparency triangles, transparency cards, stickers, wood veneer, rubber embellishments, fabric tag: Pinkfresh Studio; Cardstock, pen, adhesive: American Crafts
COLORFUL SWEET STRASBOURG by Paige Evans
DESCRIPTION: This layout features (along with the Happy Things collection!) a cute confetti heart cut file by Ashley Calder.
JOURNALING SAYS: I'm pretty sure the Alsace region of France is the most picturesque place in the world! Every view is so quaint and adorable!
HOW TO: Use a Silhouette Cameo and die cut the Confetti Heart Background by Ashley Calder from kraft cardstock. Back the cardstock with a watercolor patterned paper using foam dots. Add a photo, transparency card, and a title on the top. Place wood veneer hearts inside some of the die cut hearts then drop India ink around the photo/title. Journal on the top right corner.
