If you missed my first post on my collaboration with Amanda at The Quilted Fish, please go check it out here!
Using fabric on scrapbooking pages is a big trend, so it was so awesome that Amanda sent me some samples of fabric to work with as well!! Each of my projects today uses a bit of fabric here and there!
First up is my layout. I snapped this photo of me and my daughter one day after taking a shower. She wanted to put a towel on her head like mommy...she is such a girly girl! :) I just love pink and green combos for girls!
I did a bit of splattering with paint and stitched around the outside of my page with red thread. I specifically positioned the crown above Charlotte's head like that! Most of the time on my pages, you will see a visual triangle of three elements that help your eye flow across the page. In this case, there are three cut out flowers.
The flower near the title I made with some red fabric. I just cut some small strips and used a large glue dot. I started on the outside of the large glue dot and spiraled the fabric to the middle.
Again, I have a few cards to share, too!
Banners are another hot trend, and I just did a simple banner on this card by cutting out some triangles of fabric and stitching them to some blue background paper that I splattered with some white paint.
And this card I used a square of fabric that I stitched right to the front of my card. I fussy cut some flowers, punched a butterfly and added a sentiment to make a quick and pretty card!
I just love the way that fabric adds such a rich element of texture to my scrappy projects! Thanks for joining me this week! I have a fun tutorial coming up next week with a few more projects, too!
