This is the first layout I made when I went on the Fox-layout-making-spree a little while ago :) I wanted to dig back into my first collection (Fancy Free) and make a few pages for him using favorite techniques.
SO DREAMY by Paige Evans
DESCRIPTION: Quilts are a great place to turn to for paper piecing ideas! Replace the quilt blocks with patterned papers and you've got yourself a great composition.
JOURNALING SAYS: You are growing up right before our eyes its' like we blinked and you turned 6 going on 16! You're amazing!
HOW TO: Paint nine white circles across the B side of Paper 04 then splash watercolors over them. The watercolors were too bright so I toned them down with more paint. Punch 1" squares from Paper 06 then trim the squares in half to make triangles. Piece the triangles into 9 new squares on scratch paper, trim them out, stitch through them, then adhere them onto the painted circles. Add two photos, a title, die cuts, layered stickers, and more! Journal at the bottom to finish. Oh also, I painted over the glitter foam "dream" sticker with white paint to tone it down.
SUPPLIES: Patterned paper, Thickers, die cuts, chipboard stickers, layered stickers: Fancy Free by Paige Evans / Pink Paislee; Pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Paint: FolkArt; Watercolors: Loew Cornell; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark
Love my Fox!
