I was quite happy when I opened my Hobbysew Echuca design pack and was greeted with the lovely colours of Authentique.
Orange and blue are complementary colours, so they make each other “pop” but the shades used in this line are so soft that the effect is pretty rather than jarring.
The “tag” effect on this layout was inspired by a layout I saw in the Spring 2012 issue of Canadian Scrapbooker. It’s a great way to use a variety of paper without making your layout too busy.
I hand cut and layered the flower, then dotted the edges with Stickles glitter glue.
Authentique makes these little element cards that are really cute. For some reason, there always seems to be one or two elements on the card that missed being die cut and I have to cut it out with scissors. No biggie – I am a scissors expert, you know!
The colours from my photos of our trip through Utah were perfect for this paper line, and it felt really good to get a few more vacation photos scrapped. It’s been a year since we went on that road trip!
