Hello everyone!!! I'm here this Friday to share my latest Noel Mignon Union Square layout!! I'll admit - when I first saw the Amy Tan "Word Up" patterned paper I thought - I like it, but how will I use it?? I always have difficulty with these types of papers, but once I got my creative wheels spinning, I found an option that I was super excited about :) I decided to cut patterned paper to "fit" inside each of the rounded rectangles on the page. Then I centered my photo in between these rounded rectangles.
I added some of those gorgeous gold rub-ons and then stitched down a few gold sequins. I loved the "hello" speech bubble, but my photo was covering some of it up. I decided to use my exacto knife to cut the bottom portion of the bubble, so that I could then tuck my photo underneath it :)
I couldn't resist sneaking in one of those feathers . . .
If you haven't used that paper from the kit yet, try it!!! It's a great way to use a fun mix of patterned papers :)
Don't forget - kit subscriptions for January 2014 through June 2014 are now available!! By subscribing you save $6 a month!! And of course, you'll receive a FABULOUS box of goodies on your doorstep each month :)
Thanks for stopping by - have a wonderful weekend!!
