Okay, so yesterday I talked about stitching and alphabets. Today it will be stitching, color and style combos. When I made this layout I had only planned on cutting the large circle background, flipping the circle to use the back of the pattern paper and then stitching around it. I was inspired to try this from similar techniques I saw in magazines. I did my circle and then just kept going.
What ended up happening with this page was trying a bunch of things I don’t usually do. I have got bright colors going on which is not typical. I pulled out some really old stash (alpha stickers) and used those up. I’ve got those rubber sticker accents that I would never have bought had they not come in a kit subscription. And I’ve got those glitter accents (from the same kit). I wouldn’t have bought those accents, let alone paired them with bright colors and rubber accents. But I think it works. Yesterday I gave you the cliche “never say never.” Today I think I’ll use “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” I think the elegant silver swirls are working with the funky pink rubber letters. Does your eye behold beauty or chaos?
