Today I'm under-taking the biggest test of my 'Use Cardstock' challenge: to create a classic, white-cardstock background layout. It's something I've never been comfortable doing which makes it all the more important I try. I don't feel I've fully embraced the spirit of my February challenge until I've done so. While I'm at it I decide I might as well take a leap and eschew my usual methodical approach to designing. Instead the process for making this layout goes like this: pick my favourite pieces from Crate Paper's Kiss Kiss ephemera pack, scatter them out across the cardstock, doddle on some loops and whorls to connect them - all the while trying to ignore the sceptical inner voice telling me this will end up a disaster.
Well imagine my surprise at how this Valentine layout for Citrus Twist turned out. Light and airy, courtesy of the clean background with an easy-breezy effortlessness. I debated whether to splatter some ink, paint or mist but in the end settled on some gold confetti bits to retain a pristine background.Couldn't be more pleased with the result of stretching myself and trying something different.
