Expressing myself creatively is something I have always been compelled to do. I like to live in a world of full of color and pattern and I enjoy creating art that encompasses those things. Whether it be paper crafting, photography or mixed media art, I like to get my hands in it and have fun doing it!! This was an exciting year for me with the release of my first book Creative Foundations. You can currently find my work in Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine or come and visit me at one of the workshops I teach!
I am so happy to be guest designing for Fancy Pants this month! I have been a lover and collector of Fancy Pants Designs product for many years and I couldn’t wait to dig in and create a few projects.
In the Life at the Beach layout, I used the Summer Soul line and some color blocking. This line is so “HOT” with the pinks and orange and it worked well with these photos of my niece at the beach!
Color blocking or in this case using a grid pattern, allows for fun product layering.
The Childish Things line is so fun and whimsical! I like the play on the primary color palette in this line and the little girl and little boy elements.
I like to stretch my uses of pattern paper and opted to punch a bunch of circles and layer them on this page. I also added this thick striped ribbon with a few loops in buttons.
For this final layout I mixed product from Time For Spring and Country Boutique. I like to mix monochromatic and tone on tone patterns on a project and then tie them together with a stripe.
Here I used star punchs instead of circles and layered some punchouts and an arrow from the Wave Searcher line.
I finished up my projects with a quick card using the Wave Searcher line. Love the tiki elements in this line!!!
Thanks so much to the gang at Fancy Pants Designs for letting me stop by! I can’t wait to see what you have in store for your next release!!!
