I have to say, I really love how this page turned out. I wanted to jazz up the bottom areas of the PL cards, so I smudged some Jeni B Bleu Shimmerz on there. I also did some machine stitching on them. I used several embellishments from We R Memory Keepers here...a floral & circle die cut and a cute puffy sticker. I also added in some gold rub-ons and glittery enamel dots. That cute clear sticker & arrow are from Simple Stories.
I love this wood veneer from WRMK. I love the green and blue together, and I think it matches everything else very well. I added in some coral thread and some small coral flower stickers. The gold splatters are from the Shimmez Glorious Day Vibez from the Color Kit. It looks like a mustard yellow in the bottle, but when it dries, it's sparkly gold!
Here you can see all the dimension. I layered up some tissue paper, foam adhesive, PL cards, Dear Lizzy die cuts and a Pink Paislee leaf Thicker here. I also added a WRMK wood veneer frame behind it all...the dimension is so awesome!
I did use my edge distresser to ruffle up the edges of the cards a little bit. Here you can also see that I did a little bit of straight machine stitching on the background in a pink color.
Since this layout was all about shopping, that's what my title is :) And as soon as I saw those Dear Lizzy numbered tags, I knew I had to use this one here! It totally reminds me of one of those tags you hang on the dressing room door when you're in there trying clothes on. It also reminds me of clothing price tags. I added a little bit of thread to it and just added it to the O. That couldn't have worked out any better :) I also added a post-it note type sticker from Simple Stories for the date and did a little bit of journaling with a white gel pen.
Finally, here you can see where I used the Prima Oil Pastels on top of the white gesso. I just added a small bit of pink. I didn't want to go overboard, and I really loved the navy background, so I didn't want to take away from that. Sometimes less is better, I think.
Here's my process video for this...I had a blast making it! I hope you enjoy and get some fun ideas to try!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
