I’m Anna Edman, one of the January Guest Designers. Today I’ll show you a layout made with some 6” papers and ephemera from the collection My Bright Life.
I often start my process by picking some papers and embellishments that match the photo. In the end, some things may not be used and something else has appeared. As my son was in the kitchen, I had to use the cute paper with kitchen utensils.
I trimmed down the patterned papers to the size I wanted to have and placed the ephemera pieces. The placement of the ephemera is a ongoing process and I adjust them until they are adhered.
I adhered the papers and did some machine stitching on them to get some texture. After that, I adhered the ephemera and the title, Doris, which is the name of the dog.
I like to build up layers and add some more texture to my projects, so I often adhere some pieces with foam tape and add some sewing thread underneath.
I made a short video with some more photos and you’ll find it HERE. Find more from me on my Instagram as well HERE (@mavvek).
Thanks for stopping by!
