|Story:||Do I need to say anything here?|
|Style:||The third CKC challenge was to use vellum. I did not put vellum in my kit, because I rarely use it. But when I needed a buffer between my title word beautiful and the pattern behind it – vellum came to my rescue – beautifully, you might say! |
|Stash:||I was near the end of using up my August counterfeit kit, so I started the page by cutting an irregular edge on the postage stamp paper. I just let things evolve from there. The other patterned card is from a stationery set by Gallison that I sliced in two. It had the right tones of pink and peach to work with my page. |
I only used chipboard, buttons and a single word sticker (yes, a sticker and not a fancy-schmancy electronically made die-cut – I am so utterly old school!) to embellish this photo. The round items are really old chipboard from Hampton Art that was included in my August counterfeit kit, and the words were leftovers from an even more ancient package by K & Company.
Did you notice that I grounded all the elements to an outside edge (or two), but didn’t trap any of the irregular white space. Did you notice that the background paper is all rectangles and straight edges and the embellishments are all circles?
