Hi, Lisa here today scrapbooking some fun bucket list items we've ticked off.
I thought it would be fun today to share a few little tips with you.
This page started by me receiving the amazing new collection from Simple Stories - Safe Travels. You can see it all here.
I actually wanted the collection for a Bucket List Junk Journal I'm planning, but when I opened it all up I wanted to create a quick 12x12 straight away.
That's the sign of a perfect paper collection I think. When you get ideas and get started straight away. I just couldn't wait : )
I wanted to create a kind of grid like design. There are lots of papers with little boxes that are crying to be cut up.
One of my biggest tips, when you are laying things out on your paper and you like what you've done. Take a quick snapshot so you can remember where everything is.
This is how my initial design looked.
So then I could remove everything and add some colour.
Using stencils and colour is such a fun way to add colour. There are loads of stencils to choose from here.
Once this area was dry, I went around with some watercolours too to add even more colour.
I wanted to add some extra texture to the page so I hand sewed some yellow stitches to tie the yellow in a little more and I wrapped some teal thread around the top journal card too.
I think this finishes the page off really nicely.
I hope you enjoy this page and I hope you have some scrappy time planned this weekend.
