I like to incorporate lots of techniques and elements in my design work. On this layout I used some doodling techniques to create my title-I ADORE DOODLING! I almost go into a trance like state when I am creating with a pen! SO SO SO SO SO MUCH FUN!
I ABSOLUTELY love to play with and manipulate patterned paper, and I am always on the lookout for new and innovative ways to create with it. The twisted paper strip technique is compliments of my pal Heidi Sonboul-I had the pleasure of being on a design team with her and she is an absolute inspiration!
Little Yellow Bicycle always knocks it out of the ballpark with fabulous patterned papers and Poppy is no exception, the colors and textures are tremendously amazing! Mad Props to them for their Naturals collection-wood, burlap and cork, oh my!!! TEXTURE MECA! Xyron's adhesive is so strong and durable that it easily handles any and all textured elements on my projects, I never have any doubts about it's ability to hold them in place forever!
May Arts has the most gorgeous array of ribbons and trims! They are the perfect addition to any artsy project. As soon as I envisioned creating this funky patterned paper poloriod frame for my sweet Sophie's photo, I knew I wanted to wrap the base with this lusious orange checked ribbon!
