Design Team Post #2 by Marcie!

Hi everyone! My name is Marcie and I will be the second design team member to provide you with some wonderful 3birds inspiration. When choosing the paper for my layout I was instantly drawn to the vivid colors and designs in this patterned paper in the Focus on Photos pack. I used white cardstock as my background and sprayed blue Tattered Angels glimmer mist over it in a random spray design. I then sewed a funky outline to frame my layout-love my sewing machine! I then took coordinating lime green paper from the same Focus on Photos pack and tore the edges and crumpled them up before adhering them to my cardstock. I then took the patterned paper and cut different sizes of stips and layered them over the solid paper. For a little more interest I took a few strips of solid blue and green paper from the same paper pack and sewed them over the patterned paper strips. I then adhered the photo in the center and added fabulous chipboard embellishments from the Sticky Sparkly Letters & Shapes A Play on Words. I also added a little "Just Being You" sticker from the Overstuffed Kit to one of the chipboard embellishments and added a bit of stickles. Lastly I did the title. I used the mini rubons in green from the Overstuffed Kit and put them onto a small piece of white cardstock outlined with blue marker. I then cut the "All Natural" from the Straight from the Nest cricut cartridge and added stickles for some extra pop! I think everything went together so well & was so easy to match up! Hope you like it!
