WILD SMILE by Paige Evans
DESCRIPTION: I wanted to mix all three of my Pink Paislee collections: Fancy Free, Take Me Away, and Oh My Heart - specifically the papers from the 6x6 paper pads! The more patterns I can use on a page the better I say - gimme all the colors!! And as you can see from these examples below, I'm a big fan of the half circles technique and have used it MANY times over the years ;) Why change a good thing?!

JOURNALING SAYS: What is with this corntastic grin of yours? You are just too funny and adorable. Our walks back home from school always make me laugh so hard. Stay awesome!

HOW TO: Punch a 1" circle from all of the papers in each of the 6x6 patterned paper pads. There are even 1 or 2 papers in each pad that have lots of different patterns on one piece - punch a circle from each pattern! Stack 4 circles together then cut them in half - save half of the half circles for a different project! Trace a round bowl or object on the center of the B side of Paper 06 then adhere the paper half circles around. Continue adding layers until almost to the edge. To help secure the papers in place, use a sewing machine to stitch around each ring. Bend up the papers to create dimension. Cluster two photos, die cuts, embellishments, and journaling on the right side of the page.

SUPPLIES: Patterned paper, stickers (chipboard, paper, puffy), Thickers, paperclip, die cut, wood veneer: Paige Evans / Pink Paislee; Circle punch: Fiskars; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark; Pen, adhesive: American Crafts

PROCESS VIDEO: Here's a look at how this layout was made from start-to-finish!
