Madie here today to share my layout for August, this technique is paper weaving. It’s one of my favorite techniques and I find myself over time going back to it. Its also a good way to use up paper when you can decide with piece of patterned paper to use – use them all I say! 🙂
I used five different pieces of patterned paper and cut strips of various widths so that the layout didn’t look too uniformed, I wanted a more relaxed look to match the photo.
I layered the photo and embellished with a bunch of left over Crate Paper embellishments, some enamel dots, really cute glittered Thickers and some small tiled Thickers letters.
Here are some close up view of the details.
The photo is of Mauritius, my home, it makes me homesick but its such a lovely photo and I loved the colours in it so couldn’t help myself ‘photo lifting’ from my lovely friend on Facebook who took it, so credit to Mauseo Seo.
Hope it cheers you up on this rainy day!
