Hello friends. Today I have a fun project to share with you. We are having “Do over” theme this week on CVS blog which means redoing some old project using new line. It’s a fun form of scraplifting and I think it’s an excellent idea for anyone struggling with no mojo. I decided to do over this page from last year…
The original page was created with amazing “Midnight” collection. This line has such a pretty color scheme and I love how soft and delicate this page turned out. Summer makes me want to play with more saturated color palette, that’s why I decided to make similar page using rainbow patterns.
I treated the original layout as a sketch and recreated the stripes of papers. This kind of design is perfect to use some smaller paper pads, like 6*8 one used for this one. I love bright, happy colors of the newest line called “Happiness” and had such a pleasure making this layout.
All strips are the same size, but I only used tiny amount of glue to glue them. I sew through every strip with white thread and ruffled the edges adding more dimension. Because of the colorful patterns, I decided to use white background. I also used “So Fresh” paper to back it and create a heart frame for my page.
With such a busy background I didn’t need a lot of embellishments. I picked few flowers and butterflies from ephemera pack and added a title using word from die cut titles. I finished my composition with clear stickers, placing them over the white background. I love how this page turned out.
I encourage you to play along, scraplifting your own older pages, especially the ones you really like. It is such a great fun. Thank you for stopping by and see you in two weeks. I will have for you another colorful layout to share.
