I have created my very first blocking style lo. It was inspired by all the beautiful 7 Gypsies trays that people have altered in the past few years (Steph Devlin's in particular because of the color palette) and I thought this blocked design might look nice as a layout. I went a little chipboard crazy on this one, LOL. The papers are from an old Basic Grey "porcelain" collection and chipboard is all kinds (Dusty Attic, K and Co., KaiserCraft and Tattered Angels) - 11 pieces of chipboard in total! All the beautiful batik aster flowers (vintage and sunset) and cherry blossoms (pink and peach) are from Green Tara. A very simple design but it takes quite some planning. Probably one of the layouts I have spent the most time on. It's fun to try new things and get out of your scrappy comfort zone.
Here is a close-up of some of the details.
Well, I am working like crazy to get ahead on DT projects before my chaotic month of Easter and 3 kiddo birthdays which all begins this weekend. Plus... my Dusty Attic shipment is due to arrive soon (in the mail on its way to me :) for my Etsy shop and there is STILL... income taxes to be done (of course I have procrastinated in order to scrap instead, LOL). Wish me luck! BTW Blogger won't let me remove the excess spacing from here to the comments for this post - weird!
