Year 2018 is a year of destashing. That is my resolution and I am trying to keep that in mind when I am creating. I love all the new collections and “More than words” is so divine but i also loved some older ones and it’s time to bring them back. I decided to use the one I have the least of products left – “Hello lovely”. I only got one whole paper and some leftovers plus a little bit of ephemera pieces ans stickers. It felt to good to use it again as I feel that my money are not waisted. It’s also a year of using pictures I never used before. I love all those bright one taken with DSLR but I also have plenty of not so perfect photos taken by my phone. They still carry a lot of fantastic memories and there are no better ones so it like them or nothing. I printed few of them and made some pages.
I had few pictures of my little Maja smiling for the first time and I knew it needed to be scrapped. I thought that they would match “Hello lovely” perfectly as they both share similar color palette. I wanted to use this dotty paper called “Confetti” for my background but it wasn’t 12*12 anymore. I added a strip of pink cardstock to extend it to the right size. It’s a great way to use your papers as a layout base, even if you cut a piece of it.
First thing I use when I got new pack of ephemera are flowers. I usually got stuck with some inscriptions, tabs and tags but I really wanted to add flowers to my page. I decided to fussy cut them from “Floral fancy” paper that was added to the “Color me happy” collection.
This page is clean. I didn’t add any mixed media which is no to obvious as I usually splash some mists at the end of my creative process. This time I decided that all the dots in the background are enough and I don’t need more mess 🙂
I hope I inspired you to grab your older collections and work with them too. They all deserve to have a second chance 🙂 Thank you for stopping by and see you in two weeks.
