Hey everyone, it’s Elsie here and I’m sharing a spread in my Traveler’s Notebook with you all today using the October kits.
I always find that my Traveler’s Notebooks are a great way to experiment with different ideas and designs that I wouldn’t necessarily be brave enough to try and achieve on a 12×12 layout.
Geometric and angular shapes aren’t always something that I’m immediately drawn to, but I decided to step out of my comfort zone and make a feature of them in this TN spread using the Pinkfresh ‘Escape the Ordinary’ goodies we got in this month’s kits.
I started with the ‘Explore’ paper and fussy-cut the triangles and stitched around them with co-ordinating thread.
The Pinkfresh puffy stickers from the Embellishment kit have lots of triangles which were the perfect pieces to add and accentuate the stitched triangles.
I’m having so much fun using the Stargazer chipboard titles (also from the Embellishment kit), and I still wanted to find a way to use them even though I’m working in a TN.
The ‘hello’ piece fit perfectly across the length of my standard sized insert, so to make the title work with the stitched triangles I rotated my insert and worked with the pages in a landscape orientation.
I kept the title white as I love a tone-on-tone look, but I also thought I should make the triangles the main feature of the spread.
I love the texture of the fabric banners we got in the Project Life kit and I especially love the banners. I think they look really cute and whimsical placed on top of the “mountains”, and they’re especially great if you want to include different textures on your TN pages, but don’t want to add any dimension!
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you’re inspired to switch some things up in your TN’s!
