I absolutely love the Neapolitan line. The colors are just gorgeous and the patterns are so fun. Here is my latest page, made using the Sandcastle line:
I was instantly excited when I saw this sketch. I love the look of the circles behind the photo. I had been drooling over the Sandcastle collection for a while, and decided this sketch was perfect. My problem was that I knew my son would revolt if I used that much pink on one of his pages, so I borrowed my friend's granddaughter. This little girl is a mess! She is hilariously funny and sassy, and the Sandcastle papers worked perfectly with this sweet picture of her. I did some splatters with pink and yellow spray inks and traced the bottom of a pop can for the circles in the background. Weird, I know. But it was handy, and it worked.
I made the paper curls by cutting strips of the patterned paper and gluing together to make them double sided. Then I just curled them up and glued them in place. I added tons of little hexagons and butterflies, along with a few blingy rhinestones. The bingo card and star tag were perfect for layering beside the photo. I finished things off with the quote from Shakespeare, which fits the little lady to a T.
Thanks for stopping by! :)
P.S. Did you know that PLS has a new Christmas collection? It is called Woodland Christmas and is simply gorgeous. The colors are to die for and the little critters are just too cute for words! You can get a sneak peek by clicking the logo below:
