she sleeps

Lots of scraps and old stash were used for this page! I felt inspired to use some old stuff I had been saving after sorting through my large piles of scraps, and organizing all of my supplies.
She sleeps, and what could be more lovely?

The red stitched piece was a cast-off from several years ago that didn't make it onto the layout it had been originally made for. It was already painted and stitched, and I hated the idea of throwing it out. So glad I finally used it! Other scraps include the photo corners, book page behind the frame, the cloud punchies, and the chevron paper piece. Items from my stash of 4+ years ago include the polaroid-inspired chipboard frame, and the white tree and black kite rub-ons. 

I always try to punch out shapes from any scrap pieces I have left over and keep them in small tart tins on my desk. This is a great way to use up little pieces of left-over paper that feel too small to keep, but wasteful to discard. Plus, this way I always have a great assortment of punched shapes for a page, which makes finding something to add a fun touch or bit of colour way easy!

I painted the chipboard frame with glossy white paint and the Maya Road chipboard banner is covered with Tim Holtz tissue tape

Hills! Trees! Scraps!

another artistic creation!
What would you do without tags or book pages, Ashley? I'd better stock up before you cause a deficit..Ha! ;) (said affectionately)
But on a serious note, I DO like that that is 'your thing'...i.e. the repetition of similar items/products, because it gives your pages a cohesive, identifiable look to it. Loving your work, as always!
