I bought a new paper stack last week at Hobby Lobby, it's from Paper Studio and called Deja Blue, I was really drawn to all the blues and browns and patterns in the stack. I decided to try it today using week 3 sketch at Let's Get Sketchy. I tried to mirror the brown partial circle at the bottom right that was part of the patterned paper with a doily in the top left, I just patted some brown ink all over it, so it wasn't such a stark white. Then I just cut my 3 banners from the same patterned papers that I used a matting behind my picture. To make everything stand out just a bit, I also did a very thin matting with a blue card stock around the 2 mats, the picture and the banners. Some brown thickers for my title and a dusty blue cloth flower for an embellishment and viola I have a completed layout. Here is the sketch. I'll be using it again. Plus the bonus of the sketch and because I love banners so much I get to also put this layout over at Southern Girls Challenge Check it out HERE
They have a great challenge just announced called Swinging in the Breeze to use banners and pennants on your project and you can use them on a layout or a card. So I used them here on the layout. I just love the look of these banners and how I don't have them glued all the way down, the ends are just that "swinging in the breeze"
