Friends Forever Layout | JILLIBEAN SOUP

Thursday, February 7, 2019

Getting the most from our craft supplies is something we all like to achieve so helpful hints always come in handy. Have you ever thought about storing your patterned paper left overs in large zip lock bags and keeping similar colors together? I have always stored my paper remnants in clear bags for easy access and also to see exactly what I have available when creating a layout like Friends Forever!
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.
