Our next project comes to us from Marinette Lesne. I am such a fan of the way she uses the bright colors from the Knee Highs collection to bring a playful, girly touch to her layout!
Marinette: With two boys at home it is not easy for me to create feminine layouts. But recently I found this picture that was taken in the gardens of the palace of Versailles. So I’m really happy to create a girly layout. What better way for me to use my picture than with the gorgeous Knee Highs collection! I really like the energy in this line and the gorgeous rainbow of colors. I used a white cardstock to contrast with the warm colors of this line. I love layering elements especially patterned paper. What I love the most about every BG line are the stickers and chipboard shapes. I’m totally in love with them! They are perfect for adding some texture and dimension on my projects. I also added some mixed media actions like black ink splashes, mists, acrylic paint and doodlings.
