I had mentioned a few weeks ago that some of the papers from my Love Notes collection with We R Memory Keepers were going to be featured in Clique Kits March kit titled J’ADORE. They sent me the kit and I created a few scrapbook pages with it — this being one of them.
For this layout, I used the pretty mint watercolor wash paper (which is actually the back side of my beloved French Doors paper). I placed it on black card stock to create a dark border for contrast. Then, I leaked scalloped pieces of the sexy black doilies that came in the J’ADORE kit off the black border. Next, I cut up pieces of the cards that came in the kit. I got the ‘OK’ from a card that said ‘WORK HARD’ for example. I loved the grey tree silhouette card, and cutting it in half and layering it behind my photo gave the illusion of a tall tree. I cut out two teal origami birds from a transparency card, which gave tonal continuity with the mint paper base. To match my bright pink lips, I layered cutouts of the pink transparency and that fun pink ticket!
Another thing worth mentioning about this layout is I’m wearing a sequins sweatshirt that I bought from Nasty Gal in this photo. Wear something *sequins* is #25 on my 30 IN 30 list. Hooray for tackling my ’30 IN 30′ list one fun item at a time! 😉
