Hello lovely readers!

We have started a brand new weekly challenge over on For the Love of Pretty Paper facebook group. Last week the letter was B and the stash item to use were buttons. This week the letter is R and we have to use the colour red or be inspired by red on our layouts.

And these are the two layouts I have created so far! I may make one or two more by the end of the challenge week (next Friday) but I can’t promise anything!

I really struggled to come up with my first layout featuring red. So I stopped to think what did red remind me of? And it came straight away. Red reminds me of Spain! So this is how this layout came to life:

You’ve got style

I decided to go a bit messy with a mixed media layout. I am still not sure that messy mixed media is “my thing”, I much prefer clean layouts, but these are fun to create from time to time. The secret is to keep adding things, even when you think you’re done! So I added acrylic paint with the bubble wrap technique, watercolours with the packaging technique, mists through a stencil, splatters and a bit of stamping too! I also added some cross stitching 🙂
