Today let's see what Kim has in store for us!
Hi Fancy Pants fans, Kim here...I hope you have enjoyed the TOMBOW blog hop this week?
I have to say that I have been so impressed with all the amazing inspiration shown, not that I am biased in any way or anything :). Thanks to all the designers involved, you girls are amazing!
Seeing as I am the last project for the week, I thought a double page challenge using the Timbergrove collection would be a great way to end off. My inspiration & challenge to you is 'SIMPLIFY your design', but go for 'DOUBLE' at the same time. My go-to scrapping style tends to be busy layering, so attempting a simpler style was challenging, yetliberating at the same time. To all you simple scrapbookers out there, "You might be onto something"...I think I am hooked.
Take a look at the results.
Timbergrove Patterned Paper Powder/ Timbergrove Patterned Paper Retreat/ Timbergrove Patterned Paper Herringbone/ Timbergrove Patterned Paper Bits-n-Pieces/ Timbergrove Patterned Paper Folic/ Timbergrove Patterned Paper Flurries/ Timbergrove Sticker Fundamentals/ Timbergrove 4 x 6 Brag Pad/ Timbergrove Decorative bags/ Timbergrove Small Decorative Tags/ Timbergrove Patterned Photo Frames/ Timbergrove Label Stickers/ Timbergrove Button Set/ Cork Star Shapes
To add uncluttered interest to my page I used x2 different patterns on each size of the page. I find doing this helps the overall design remain linear & clean. This is where the Tombow Stamp Runner adhesive came in real handy. It is strong & easy to apply to paper strips & photos.
Playing with fonts & digitally adding sentiments to ones photos is another great way to keep the page design clean & less cluttered.
Not sure how to attach fussy shapes....? Try the Tombow Mono Glue Pen. It made adhering the white die-cut snowflakes a cinch to do.
Scattering your journaling around the page is a super way to say what you have to, in a creative way, adding extra visual texture too. I used my faithful typewriter to add mine, complete with mistakes LOL!
I really hope this has inspired you to think beyond your usual scrapping style like I did. If you play along with my challenge, feel free to share it on our Facebook page :)
Thanks again for joining us for this blog hop...I wish you all happy holidays & a very merry Christmas for next week.
