I really loved the chevron pattern on the back of ‘Best day’ so decided to use this as a border for my plainer black background. I wanted to use the plainest of the black sheets ‘Happy day’ for the background as my plan was to use Shimmerz with The Crafters Workshop template ‘Art Is’ and have
a gorgeous bright blue popping off the page…but I changed my mind and instead wanted a chalky look for the black so used the stencil with a pale ink. I also used a Tim Holtz gear/clock stencil to make the page more masculine as well as some other stamps and stencils. It was lots of fun trying to think what blackboards looked like!
To balance out the flowers, I cut out a Tim Holtz gadget gears and covered it
in ‘Pictured paper’. I also used the reverse of ‘Frame it’ as a mat for the photo as I thought it echoed the pinstripes in the guy’s suits. Along the edge of the photo I laid a strip of the cool Green Tara black chevron washi tape, it really made a difference to the page!
I have another page in progress using these same pages coz I absolutely love
‘Lettered Page’, so my plan is a layout of my Dad when he graduated university and since his major was accounting I HAD to get The Crafters Workshop template ‘Ledger’. I’m really looking forward to doing this page too and I will have to get cracking as I want to give it to him for Father’s Day!
