Happy Day Layout for Paige's Pages 18

Tuesday, May 28, 2019

Here is my second layout made for Paige's Pages 18 at Big Picture Classes and is all about texture.
This page might look like it took a long time to create, but it really didn't and it’s super easy to re-create! All you need are two pieces of the same paper (I used Paper 14 from my Horizon collection), a paper trimmer, and some scissors to make the distressed & quilted background.

I simply cut up Paper 14 into triangles, heavily distressed those triangles, and then put them back in place on a new piece of the very same paper (I used one from the 12x12 Paper Pad).

 Usually I would machine stitch little paper bits like this in place, but I wanted the focus of texture to be on the paper and not machine stitching. That said, I did add machine stitching around the layout edges to create a border and used strong adhesive to attach the triangles in place.

 Since the background is very busy, I didn’t add much else: a photo, a title on top of the photo made with a "Happy" Chipboard Sticker, journaling strips (I used my favorite font called Remington Noiseless), and just a pinch of Stickers & Ephemera Die Cuts, all in the same area to draw the eye into the photo and keep the focus there.
