My Love Layout

Ready to get started? Let's go! Kicking off our day today is design team member Stacy Cohen!  

"I was completely WOWED by Paige Evans’ beautiful “Rome” layout the minute I saw it!  What really caught my eye were the brightly colored circles arranged across the page.  I love how Paige used different circle sizes and added some fun buttons to the mix.

For my “inspired by” layout, I knew I wanted to focus on vibrant circles like Paige did, so I got out my alcohol inks, watercolors and watercolor paper and went to town.  Here is my “inspired by” layout:

To make the circles, I first painted rows of rainbow colors on watercolor paper.   I tried to get them in order of how I was going to place them on the page so that could get some 2-toned circles for a slight ombre effect.

Once the paper was dry, I die-cut the circles using stitched circle steel dies.   A circle cutter or circle punches would also work.

I cut a strip of white cardstock about 5.5 inches wide by 12 inches tall, then I added the circles with 3D foam adhesive. I cut off the edges of the circles to get straight lines on both sides.  I then adhered the circle strip to my background cardstock and I was ready to complete my page!

I hope everyone is having a crafty National Scrapbook Day!" ~ Stacy
