Just a quick layout to share today.
This page never would have come about were it not for my June Best Day of My Life Scraptastic kit. This is a pattern paper that I would not have gravitated too, probably never would have purchased, but am glad I had it to work with. I am so happy with how this layout turned out.
That cityscape piece came as a single, plain wood veneer. I didn’t think that the wood matched the colors and tones in the paper or photo so I heat embossed it silver. The wood veneer took the embossing really well. It’s a good reminder that if you are determined to use something that doesn’t match your project, think about how you can change or alter it to get it to work.
While I probably wouldn’t have picked this papers up myself, I love that kits like this can push me to create layouts I wouldn’t normally create. The paper inspired me to find a cityscape photo and when I landed on this one, I knew exactly what the story would be.
Do you ever let products inspire the story and photos for your layouts?
Thanks for stopping by today!
