Joy

Today I'm sharing my last layout created with the July Hip kit, how I loved that kit. The colors, the embellishments, it was all perfect and so much fun to work with. I used mostly scraps of paper on this layout, love the little touches of black it really pops off the page against the white background. Although you can't see it very well on the picture, I stitch a frame around the picture, I think that I need gold thread, it would have been much better than white. 


I used a cut file to create the ticket stub, then I crinkled the velum paper to give it a distress look and added stitching, makes a fun accent. 


I wanted to add a bit of gold on this layout, so using a Studio Calico mask I applied Versamark to a couple of rows of the triangle mask and embossed American Crafts gold embossing powder.  I had to use the Lucky Charm paper tag, its just too adorable to pass up.
