Handmade Paper - Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida
The sun is finally peeking out a bit here in coastal Florida. We've had the summer rains and thunderstorms for a few days now and it's nice to be the sunshine state again!
I've been puttering around in my studio, trying to purge (yeah...right!!) and make use of things that were tucked away waiting for the right moment. Well, my BFF Rindy gave me some fabulous handmade paper that she brought back from a trip a few years (yes, YEARS) ago. And when I rediscovered it I squealed with delight! Because now was the perfect time to cut into it and marry it with the new colors and peacock images in CTMH's new Autumn Idea Book (coming out September 1!).
Just look at that paper! Isn't it insanely beautiful??? The gold really shimmers and shines. I just love it! It's a light and airy tissue texture and I have plenty left - tee hee!
I didn't want a bright gold cardstock, so I used a Copic marker to make my own muted gold cardstock from white. The stamped label is one of Claire's fabulous Waltzingmouse stamps that coordinates with Spellbinders(TM)' S4-229 Labels Five die template - still my favorite!
That awesome huge glittery brad, the peacock feather stamp and the new 'blue' ink colors are all in the new Idea Book. I hope you enjoy!
