I’ve been really liking the idea of tone-on-tone colors in my scrapbook pages lately. I’ve done a couple of pink pages, a blue layout, and I’m working on a pink & red page. I love the look of one or two colors in different hues and tones. Maybe not on cars from the 70’s, but in paper crafting oh yeah!
First of all I started with one of my favorite pictures of my sweet little girl. Then I cut out some small strips of pink papers from my scrap stash. Some were patterned, others were plain. I liked the idea of making a frame of embellishments around the picture, without them touching it.
I stamped lightly on a few of the scraps and l tried to lay them out like mosaic tiles. I added some small bits of borders, some stickers, die cuts, buttons, and sequins. I took some of the same paper and made some flag shapes out of them, then made a little embellishment cluster in the top right corner, along with a vintage ticket I dyed with my homemade ink.
Here are a couple close-up pictures.
I wasn’t able to find all of the supplies I used on this page. Some were old and no longer in their packaging so I couldn’t tell what they were. And, since I buy almost everything on clearance, some things were discontinued and out of stock. But, when I could find it online I found the best deal I could.
