Some days my head is exploding with new and creative ideas, some days there's not a single creative thought to be found... Very frustrating when you, right at that moment, have the time to scrap ;-)
Of course there is the social media and internet for mountains of inspiration, but you can also look back at your own creations for some inspiration. I remembered a full photo layout I did a few years ago, and decided to try this again.
I decided I wanted a flower cluster on two opposite sides. Then the fussy cutting began... I don't mind some cutting, but sometimes I really wished I had a fancy cutting machine ;-)
To give the page some dimension, I created some french knots on the layout with embroidery thread. Pull the needle and thread through the paper, wrap the thread 3-4 times around the needle, like shown on the picture above. Then return the needle through the same hole in the paper and pull the thread through. This stitch looks like a little flower bud. It's subtle, but I love the extra interest it adds to the layout.
I finished the page with a large title, a few colorful labels and some gold Colorshine by Heidi Swapp.
Hope you can find some time to scrap and be creative! See you soon, XO Else
