Welcome to Day 3 of It's Hip to Be Square! Are you enjoying the ideas you've seen so far? I know it's only been two days, but have you tried any of them yet (or at least tucked them away for future reference?) LOL!
Today my guest is Ashley Calder. Ashley is the author of the book, Scraptastic: 50 Messy, Sparkly, Touch-Feely, Snazzy Ways to Jazz Up Your Scrapbook Pages. She has designed for Fancy Pants, Pebbles Inc., Autumn Leaves and Leave Memory Stamps and is currently a Jenni Bowlin Studio Ambassador. Let's take a look at the wonderful idea Ashley is sharing with us today...
Can you tell where Ashley used 6x6 papers on this beautiful layout? Take a look at the neutral sheet, with a subtle pattern, in the bottom right corner. That's right! She used it for her amazing title work! The entire title is made from small metallic brads. I love how the metal in the title plays off of the paper clips in the upper portion of the page and the metal embellishments in the bottom left corner. Ashley backed her title with a number of other layers, allowing just a bit of each paper to peek out around the edges. This really puts the focus on the title.
The idea for the Ashley's title work came from this image on Pinterest.
Inspiration is all around us, isn't it? I can envision this idea being used for large sticker titles, quotes, and even some beautiful Cameo Silhouette cut work. What other ideas does this bring to mind for you? Be sure to share them with us. :)
Ashley, thank you so much for sharing this incredibly creative idea! Please visit Ashley's blog, Things that Shine, to see more of her inspiring work.
I'll be back on Monday with more ideas and a continuation of this series. Have a great weekend!
