Here's a layout I created for Your Scrapbook Stash using the very pretty Mix & Mend collection from Sassafras Lass. The patterned paper here is so beautiful there really isn't a need to do very much with it, but I wanted to see if I could add to the design without taking away from the original collage layers.
I cut along the collage images of the patterned paper, then tucked my photo along with layered photo mats under the cut out images. To add some dimension to the collage, I added in bits of blue tulle, orange and yellow ric rac and cream lace, which blend in beautifully with the rest of the patterned paper.
I distressed and inked along the edges of the patterned paper and in the bits that got ripped from over-enthusiastic distressing, I added some peekaboo lace and a little flower, bakers twine and leaf trim.
Thanks for dropping by! :) I'll have some news to share with you tomorrow.
