Hello, I’m here to share a layout I’ve made using one of the techniques taught at our amazing 10th Anniversary retreat back in June, ‘Iris Folding’. Although the ‘folding’ part isn’t strictly true as I’ve used thin strips of paper rather than folded paper for the iris effect. Rather than a shape, I thought I’d use the technique for the numbers in my title ’13’.
For this layout I dipped into my stash of the new collection by Maggie Holmes ‘Willow Lane’, I absolutely adore the colour palette in this collection. I added some definition to the iris effect title with some faux stitching in black pen, which I repeated on the scallops printed on the paper.
And here’s the layout I made at the retreat in Kirei’s class with lots of lovely stars…
There’s lots of templates online, so if you fancy having a go and weren’t at our retreat a search will give you lots of templates to try out.
