In the last few days I saw a sketch using lots of tags. I loved the sketch, but can't find it back. (I know - I need a better system, but I will share it with you when I find it.) Then I read the Chic Tags Sunday challenge - incorporate gold into your project. And then, to top it off, I saw a DT call from Little Yellow Bicycle looking for team members for a new line.
Then I happened to be in my LSS and saw the new LYB line, Poppy. The colors are so bright and fresh, but still have a softness about them. They really were my perfect summer palette. I bought almost every piece of the collection they had. Then I came home and made this layout.
I used papers from the collection and almost the entire package of these journaling tags - they were so much fun to layer. I used gold ink on some of the edges to help make them pop. And I used the cardstock stickers to embellish one of the cork tags from the LYB Naturals line.
But my LSS didn't have the full line and since I am have tons of fun with transparent elements lately, I especially missed the clear cuts. Fortunately I was able to add pieces from the clear cuts for the Just Because and Hello Fall Collections.
I also played with the vellum tape strips (a new product for me) and added some gold sequins and some MME Boy Crazy enamel dots (because who can do a layout without sequins and enamel dots).
Now I'm off to find that sketch and to read that DT call again. Maybe this will be the time I enter?
Have a wonderful Wednesday.
