Hi it's Sandy. I've been playing with some of my favourite products from the shop - Crate Paper's Maggie Holmes and DIY Shop collections. The trend for photo-realistic pattern papers is going strong and I picked two of them, a weathered woodgrain and a blue sky, for this page.
The idea for my layout was that of photos and papers randomly pinned or taped onto the wall which naturally led to the woodgrain being used for the background. I added the script pattern paper to breakup the background and then proceeded to layer the other elements at contrasting angles.
The subtle floral pattern was getting a little lost amongst the other elements so I added some free-motion embroidery to bring out the details. Layering a few pieces of vellum under them also helped to create a dimensional effect. The title was printed in black on the sky blue paper and then over-printed with the journalling in light grey for an interesting texture.
You might have picked up on my mis-spelling of Coca. I'm blaming it on scrapping too late into the night and making a note to spell check in the future.
