Folk Art Patterns

My assignment from Get It Scrapped!: Make a page on which you do something that's inspired by traditional folk patterns.

This page is about walking into a charming room in a little winepress cottage and instantly feeling right at home. The title is a song from My Fair Lady that I sing every time I look at these photos.
Collection Featured: My Mind's Eye Collectable
My product choices were inspired by traditional folk patterns and accomplish design goals. For instance:
  • The green and cream paper strip has a folk art motif and helps anchor the smaller photo. 
  • The folk art heart embellishments were cut with my Silhouette and layered with raised adhesive to flow across the page on the diagonal. 
  • Small details like the twine hand-stitched border and turquoise crochet heart help the layout look as cozy and inviting as the room in the 4x6 photo.
By the way, I sure didn't crochet that embellishment. It's from Bella Blvd. To see what the rest of the Creative Team has done with folk patterns, check out the rest of the article here.
