On The Diagonal: Paper Strips

I'm sharing over at the PINK PAISLEE Blog today where it's "diagonal" week!
www.pinkpaislee.com
One of my favorite trends to-date: diagonal stripes.
 I love them way more than chevron, way more than plain stripes and almost as much as swiss dots!
 For my layout, I’ve chosen the “Color Wash” Collection and a few recent photos of my daughter 
caught while waiting to perform a dance number; they’re fun and silly, and I love the pop
 of black and white photos against the pastels. 

I created a swatch of a diagonal pattern by cutting 1/2″ strips from one of the patterned papers
 and then attaching them to a base paper.


After the rectangle of paper was covered in strips, the excess was trimmed off. 

The word “silly” was hand-cut from one of the Color Wash papers and then glued to the “hello” tag. 
 A trio of butterflies were punched from the 6X6 paper pad, embellished with canvas dots,
 a jewel and then added with foam adhesive. I placed pieces of the vellum banner, so tha
t it would appear as if the butterflies were carrying the strands. 

The diagonal panel was finished off with a single-stitch around the edge and then added to the layout with foam adhesive. A pretty hand-tied bow completes the page while giving some softness and whimsy! 

 I think that I'll try this concept out on a card or two also!

**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
