There are so many awesome artists that I get inspiration from, but I felt my own style was not evident. I looked back at several more recent layouts to see what I liked and didn't like. I discovered I like neutral backgrounds with pops of color from patterned paper. I truly love combining patterned paper and adding some embellishments. I noticed that I particularly get excited when I use up old stash. I have lots and lots of older stuff that I have not used and I get great satisfaction combining that stuff with newer stuff to make a modern looking page.
I'm taking Shimelle's Remix class and was trying to incorporate a blue paper with a bold, larger pattern on it. This is my creation:
The blue paper with the heart is from an old DCWV stack I believe called "Rockstar". I also used on older acrylic swirly stamp and a 7 gypsies card for journaling. I then added in the polka dot paper from Echo Park's For The Record collection. Some older metal brads added some texture and finally I inked some older Tim Holtz grunge board letters I've been holding onto for the title as well as a Tim Holtz ticket. I so enjoyed pulling out items I've collected and not used over the years. I see that I love layering these things and making embellishment clusters. So much fun!
