Project - My Friend Flicka
by Jill Sprott
Lesson learned: never judge a piece of patterned paper by its A-side. Most of the papers on this layout are B-sides, many of which I might have overlooked had I not checked for them in the Two Peas store. The new Simple Stories line, for instance, is full of surprising B-sides, like the text paper on this layout. Even the letters on the layout were cut from a B-side of a sheet of Basic Grey paper (the pattern reminds me of Flicka's blonde fur – ha!). I'm telling you – it's time to rediscover B-sides in a BIG way.
I also incorporated a flocked transparency from the Fancy Pants “Be You” collection here, drawing upon another lesson learned: if something does not include a color you want to use on a layout, then just ADD the color. I backed a few of the hearts by brushing on color using mist and paint.
This is a color scheme that just sort of emerged as I worked on the page, but I will most definitely be using it again! It's so bright and happy, and like those B-sides, an unexpected discovery.
Thanks for looking!
