It is great for using up some left over bits and pieces of papers! Which is what I did with my page, although I haven't actually shared the two pages that I created prior to making this page using the Winter Wonderland collection from Simple Stories.
I am documenting some photos I snapped last winter while we were out for a walk on a bitterly cold day. It was our first time walking on the lake in the winter. It was kind of fascinating and a little scary!
You probably know by now that I am a sucker for all wood-grained papers, and this one called "Wonderland" from this Simple Stories collection is no exception. So of course, it needed to be my background! I added some gold machine stitching and a large snowflake die cut from vellum to create my focal area for my photos. It turned out a little larger than I anticipated but it still works.
After that, I layered my pattern paper and Washi strips, adding some more machine stitching - this time in teal - and my photos.
Next up came embellishing which is always super fun!
As a last touch, I added some gold Heidi Swapp color shine splatters.
I have created a process video for this layout, you can check it out below or here on my You-Tube channel!
Thanks so much for visiting today!
