I used up two collections of paper and scraps today, and this is my third to tackle. I held onto my *Love,Elsie* papers too long. I used to love them, like LOVE them so freakin' much, and now? Now they don't fit my style at all. I'm layering with them as much as I can, going a bit nuts (as you can see in my other post from today), but it still looks off for me. I really just have to get paper I like and then use it. Period.
This is the layout I came up with, covering a piece of cardstock with long strips of the paper and then layering on mats and anything else I could come up with. These pictures can be supported by any kind of paper, so I just went with it.
With the little bits I made these two cards.
And then this last one with an actual coloured image. I put like... effort into it.
