Garnet – Layout 7
So you’re kind of in a funk, feeling like all of your scrappy products are the same and you’d really like to shake things up by trying something new — well then, don’t delay in today’s steal, the Mistables collection by Pink Paislee. Not only are these papers a super fun vintage and shabby, but you get to customize them to the color palate that you want! Add the mistable embellishments and you have the workings for a one of a kind artistic creation.
I had a lot of fun manipulating the papers and trims to create this layout for one of our fans, Melanie Henderson. Isn’t her family simply gorgeous?
It was pretty amazing to me that I could turn the base paper from a basic white script to a custom colored paper that worked to perfection with Melanie’s photo.
I also loved how well the muslin trims and flower received the mist colors as well as the flocked stickers and chipboard letters. The little bit of resist pattern adds the perfect touch! I also wanted to demonstrate how much fun the mask template that is included in today’s steal can be. If you look closely on the muslin trim on the layout you can see that I used it to mask the trim and make it multi-toned.
You can also use the mask on regular paper. I turned this sheet of plain white cardstock into a cute card in just a few steps!
Thank you so much Melanie for letting me scrap a photo for you. I hope you like it! I will get it sent on it’s way soon.
