Hi there Chantalle with you today - sharing a layout I have created with the bold & beautiful Life in Color collection.  absolutely adore this collection and it’s amazing to see how it interpreted so many ways in projects I’ve seen online. I’ve gone with a bit of an irreverent feel, playing on those awesome drawn stars and edgy patterns.

Using the painted stroke Fundamental stickers as inspiration, I’ve used some brush stamps and pulled out some matching ink cubes. I then went about stamping in the top third of my page, creating a faux painted band. Just under that, I’ve also adhered some adorbs Life in Color Washi tape. Finally I machine stitched roughly over the strips to give a nice bit of texture.

Decorative clips can be a fun way to add to a story plus hold a few layers in place!

This collection also has some of the BEST wood veneer shapes! (The paperclips have to be my fave.) Here I’ve used the ampersand in my title, along with the day of the week chipboard sticker. It’s fun to look past the obvious use for an embellishment, have a go at mixing the letter order in a word to come up with different options!

To get the dipped effect, I simply drew on the bottom half with a white Uni Posca marker. It has a decent opacity which is very useful when working with darker papers or embellishments.

Layering fun!

There’s that ca-uuute paperclip. Which actually works! LOVE!

Thank you so much for joining me today. Until next time!
