My well-planned blog schedule took a little detour this week as I've been fighting off a nasty winter bug. A few days of power naps, fluids, and repeating the mantra I.Will.Not.Get.Sick seems to have done the trick, so I'm trying to salvage what's left of this week with a few delayed posts! Needless to say, I am doing so unshowered, with no make-up, and in pjs and fuzzy slippers, so Wardrobe Wednesday is out of the question. Though if it weren't a frigid 18˚ outside, I might be willing to go take a few photos...they are awfully cute pjs, after all.
But instead, I'm gonna share a fun stripey page that I did with the BasicGrey line, Evergreen (and pssst....most of it is on clearance now!) I managed to incorporate twelve of the patterned papers by using a small stripes - about 1/2-inch wide - and arranging them in rainbow order across my background.
S U P P L I E S :
I printed the block of journaling in the lower left corner prior to adhering all the stripes, which I stitched in place with various colors of threads that coordinated with the papers. Then I layered my photos on top, tucking in groups of embellishments around them.
I tried to keep the clusters all one color - a red group, a green group, an aqua group, and a yellow group - and placed them near those color stripes. The rainbow order works perfectly with stripes and since this one largely features red, green and blue, it still conveys that holiday/winter theme.
Something else that works perfectly with stripes? Polka dots. And big shaggy dog slippers, of course.
