get it scrapped!: repoussoir

this is a layout i made for an article on repoussoir at get it scrapped!  i know!  i had no idea what repoussoir was either!  debbie is really awesome that way . . . she's discovering new nuggets of inspiration all the time.
if you love learning as much as i do or if you're on the hunt for a bit of unique inspiration do head on over there to check it out!

i wanted to give you a little background information on the background of this layout.  i believe i was playing with my watercolor crayons and colored in some of the circles on that paper by studio calico.  i liked the look, but felt it was too busy for the photo, so i toned it down by stitching a sheet of white tissue paper over the top and then misting it a tiny bit.  good save doris!  ha!

here's a peek at the other page i did for the repoussoir article.  you can see the entire piece over at get it scrapped!  for the grass on this page i cut the green dotted tissue paper into oh an inch and a half or so, folded it in half the longway and stitched it to my page on the folded side.  i then went back and snipped the strips and fluffed them to make the grass.  fun.

and this is a peek of a page i did for a feather article over there.  another good read definitely.  the articles have always been great over there, but since debbie added the design team, she's really stepped it up a notch.  articles delivered every weekday and they're always so relevant, inspiring, and trendy.  i don't know how she stays so on top of things, but i'm sure glad she does!

some of my recent favorite reads there are:
