Check out those fancy-schmancy names I came up with for the colors! :) What's a furbelow, you ask?
1. a ruffle or flounce, as on a woman's skirt or petticoat.
2. any bit of showy trimming or finery.
Here's the page I made with this beautiful palette. I dug out some really old Li'l Davis polka dot paper and combined it with a bunch of different Webster's Pages papers and a fun textured paper. The filigree cupcake liners immediately made me think of doilies.
Here are some detail photos. The butterfly, journaling spot and paper lanterns are cut from various Webster's Pages papers. The Eau de Toilette piece came from a Design Originals book of ephemera cut-outs that I bought years and years aog. And remember when Making Memories made those washers with the words and the K&Company came out with sticker versions of those? Yeah, I bought them, and there they've sat in my stash for eons. But lately, I've been trying to use some of my older stash and this sticker was the perfect color, so I went for it. I think mounting it on a punched circle, adding a jeweled brad, and tucking it into other layers updated its look a bit! Oh, and that gate sticker? It's by Mrs. Grossmans. Gasp! I almost got rid of that a couple of years ago when I was purging stuff from my stash. So happy I kept it!
The yellow and green flowers are cut from Webster's Bloomers and American Crafts ribbon trim. I nestled some jeweled brads in the centers to hold them in place. The wispy blue flower is from Michael's Recollection brand. I tucked in a little burgundy flower, as inspired by that some of the flowers on the cupcakes and also to balance the bit of burgundy on the umbrella.
This lovely silhouette was cut out of a Webster's Pages Hollywood Vogue paper. I put her on pop dots and added some pearls to the flowers on her hat. Isn't that yellow paper cool? I've had it for ages. Not sure where I picked it up, but it's by The Paper Company. The embossed word stickers are also pretty old and are by K&Company. I love adding word stickers--they add that little something to the story, and my layouts always feel naked without them.
The resin photo corner is by Melisa Frances. So pretty and detailed!
The umbrella is also from a Webster's Pages paper. I added black Ranger's Enamel Accents over the black dots that were printed on the umbrella to add some texture to this cut-out.
The design team did some amazing work with this palette--go over and take a peek. And I hope you'll play along. This is the last week to post a project in our Gallery to qualify for a cool prize provided by our sponsor, Unity Stamp Company. Plus, you might just wind up as our Gallery Fave or become a Featured Member for a future challenge!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and looking at my layout!
