The monthly challenge over at Papertrey Ink this month was to use some type of pom poms on your project. I chose to use these pom pom trims that I found at JoAnn's. I couldn't resist all of the fun colors so I bought a little of each and now they are sitting in this blue bowl on my desk just waiting to be used again and again!! What a fun challenge!
I created an 8.5x11 layout for my project and used the pink and yellow trims. I am in love with the new Vintage Yummy Sassafras Lass papers and my page was highly inspired by the little framed vintage artwork (with the flowers and the bird) that I cut from the "remember me" patterned paper.
I wanted my stamped accents to resemble the vintage cutout so I stamped them on cream cardstock and then used bright markers to color in some of the areas. Then I also used a brown ZIG Writer to outline the flowers. Over on the right side of the page I stamped the vine stamp with yellow ink for a subtle effect on my background paper, and then again I outlined it with a brown ZIG Writer so it would coordinate with the other hand-drawn touches. The scallop border on the right edge of the page was created by stamping it on cream cardstock and then I cut it with my scallop scissors. How lucky is it that my scissors match the spacing on the scallop stamp exactly!!
This was a fun challenge and one that you should definitely try! These pom pom trims are definitely addicting! I bet they will find their way onto lots of my other projects in the future!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
