LOTW | Stefanie

Our Layout of the Week, A Life Inspired, comes from our member Stefanie (username SteffiandAnni). We love Stefanie's light and colorful mixed media background and her unique take on adding embellishments! To keep up with Stefanie and see more of her work, be sure to follow her here at SCon Instagram, and on her blog.

Here's what Stefanie has to say about her project:

I LOVE the Color Theory Acrylic paints. And I like using them on my projects. For this layout, I wanted to create a frame of brush strokes. The chipboard brushes from the "Film Club" Scrapbook Kit were my inspiration—I found them totally sweet. First, I tested the brush strokes with a wide brush on a scrap piece of paper. Then, when I was happy with the look, I did it on the layout. At the end, the photo, brushes, and title came together on the yarn—everything from different kits. I like it to mix them. Thank you so much to all SC members for choosing my layout :)
