Texture Texture Texture

I love texture!

Today I am sharing a layout that has a whole bunch of it.

The papers are all from the wonderful My Private Happiness collection from The ScrapCake.

This layout is actually full of "mistakes".  I had cut that white background with my Cameo the other day, and it was supposed to be a full 12 x 12 background.  But then I ripped it.  So I cut it down and used it on this one.  There was some stuff on the back of it...like markings and slight tears, but it was on the back, so it didn't matter.  So I sprayed it with my Helmar v2 Adhesive spray to adhere it to my layout.  Then I discovered I sprayed the up side!  So I poured some glitter over the top.  See what I mean?  Then I messed up my journaling and had to cut that part off and add a new strip of white behind it.  I tell you....it was just one error after another.

But I am very happy with how it turned out.  Funny how that happens.  :)

Those awesome fancy white leaves are from Prima and the twine is from The Twinery.

Here are some close up's:


Funny thing is...I showed Eryn this layout and she didn't think anything of her facial expressions or anything, she just said "look, I'm a princess!"  LOL...when she gets older she may not like this layout as much.  :)

Well thanks so much for stopping by!  Don't forget about my giveaway here.  I will draw a winner for it tomorrow.  

Have a wonderful day!!!

sometimes our favorite layouts evolve from those with "mistakes". :)

What a beautiful mistake! I think it's great, and I will use that glitter tip again, because I glue the wrong side all the time! LOL Love Penny

I agree with everyone else, this is a beautiful mistake! I adore the white background that you cut out.

I love it! Can't believe it's full of mistakes! It's really these wonderful accidents that force us to be creative, isn't it? The colors are so soft, and the cut-off cameo background looks (i imagine...) better than if you used 12x12.

Love the drama queen look. My 4 y/o has that down pat too. And the 2 y/o is following every so quickly in her footsteps. Wonderful texture and love all the cutouts!
