All the strips of paper are from various Jillibean collections yet they all merge seamlessly when placed together in the one design. At first when I laid the strips down they basically sat flat and didn't really achieve the look I was hoping for. So I roughed up the overlapping edge and curled it up slightly which gave it more dimension and appeal.
Because I had so much colour in the actual design of the layout I chose to print the photo in black & white so it contrasted nicely with the background and actually stood out more.
I am so in love with this new multi colour thread I found in a local store in town, so much so that I bought just about every colour combination they had. Stitching is usually a staple on my layouts and sometimes I add little knots and cut the ends just to add something different.
