Best of Friends

Whoop, whoop! Another layout created using scraps! Excluding the background paper, everything on this layout was made from my scrap pile. Hard to tell isn't it!

After I chose my scraps to make my blocks I noticed that two of the blocks (top right and bottom left) had only one colour in the pattern and for some reason that way throwing off my layout mojo.  So I decided to add another colour!  I took out some of my favourite acrylic stamps and some ink and stamped a pattern on to each of the blocks.  Almost looks like they came that way!  Now I am happy as it seems to go together better!  So if you ever find a piece of paper isn't working for or that a colour is missing from an otherwise perfect pattern why not give this a try!  You never know ... you might create something you love too!

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Basic Grey - Hello Luscious Collection; Embellishments: My Minds Eye - Abby Road Die Cut, Flowers, Rhinestones, Resin Flower, and Basic Grey - Hello Luscious Die Cut Stickers; Inks: ColorBox Chalk Inks ; Tools: Acrylic Stamps, EK Success Scalloped Edger Punch, and Tim Holtz - Tiny Attacher.

That's a great idea! I'll have to keep that in mind. And great use of your scraps - it all came together so well!
