Ashli had this to say about her page:
I can't help it. I am totally in love. In love with patterns, especially tiny repeating patterns. Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic collection has the perfect mix of whimsy, color, and of course pattern. For this week's theme, I am putting all of these papers to work on this photo-less layout that will be the cover page to my 2012 album. After selecting my most favorite pattern for the background, I cut up the journaling card sheet and layered those bits up with some messy-stitched circles. My favorite Thickers and wood veneer accents finish off my layout that is filled to the max with my favorite patterns!
Made by May Flaum!
From distress inks to stenciling, playing with resist prodcuts to aging with rock candy crackle I had an incredible time making this gift tag. Every single piece on here is a favorite - including my techniques. One of my favorite things right now is using stencils with a blending tool and distress ink - I love the color and all it adds to my projects.
