Yesterday I received the new collections that Julie sent me from France.
The latest "Les Papiers de Pandore" are so cute and the colours very happy.
You can sroll down a couple of posts and you can see the collections there.
I just had to start making something with them right away.
This one is my first and I have one more on my table.
I wanted to do something fun and in keeping with the spirit of the collection.There is a childlike abandon about it and I feel it should not be 'overworked'. I tried to keep things on the clean and simple side to let the pretty papers 'shine'.
Lately I have my sewing machine out and use it on almost all of my pages.
So even here to add some texture to the edges and borders. I used a die from Marianne Design to make the different snow flakes.
The cute little penguin here is cut from the papers and layered on a die cut journalling spot.
I wanted my title to be on the fan folded border but had some difficulties making the small letters stick. I cut a bit of hard plastic from some packaging and added my letters to it.
Now sticking down my title was much easier!
I was so lucky these older letter stickers from Pink Paislee were just the right colour!
As you can see there is not a single flower in sight here,...Shocking I know!.... :-)
I used the snowflakes as substitute blooms and added leaves and some bling. All the snowflakes in different sizes have been fastened using pop dots to make them stand out and add some dimension.
Ok that was a fairly quick post today.
I wanted to do it now as I am going to the theatre tomorrow evening to see the musical EVITA and probably won't have time then.
I saw it many years ago with Elaine Paige in London when I lived over there,and that was fabulous.
Lastly, I would like to tell you that the next International Guest Designers have been posted on the Pandore blog and you can read it HERE. Big congratulations to all of them!!
