Hello everyone, it's Gail here blogging today! I hope you're having a great week! I have to admit, I let out a squeal of delight when my delivery man dropped off a box full of the newest lines from Simple Stories! I have been dying to play with Vintage Bliss so I dove right in!
Now you know I've gone on before about how much I love the 6" paper pads, well this layout utilizes them perfectly! I was inspired by a handmade quilt I saw on a blog recently here. I gathered several sheets of the 6" paper (the smaller designs are perfect for the smaller blocks) and cut lots of triangles.
I wasn't too exact when cutting them. I made a triangle template from some chipboard and simply traced around it and cut them all out. My triangles' sides are about 2.5".
Next I layed them out on my backgorund cardstock until I was happy with the design and then slowly distressed the edges of each and adhered them down.
I was very happy with my background and had loads of fun then adding my photos and embellishments!
A lot of the elements on my layout were raised on pop dots so as to preserve the dimension that I carefully created with my background.
In my usual Simple Stories style, I layered up lots of stickers to create my embellishment clusters.
Thank you for visiting today and I hope I've inspired you to get out those 6" paper pads and get patchworking . . . scrapbooking style!
