Gossamer Blue Grin

Hello!  I really did have a blast working with all the great colors and prints in the January Gossamer Blue kits.  This layout is probably the most colorful of all the projects I created this month.

The Fancy Pants alpha's from the Life Pages AO #3 are great for titles, and I also really liked the label die cuts in the Life Pages kit.  It seems like I gravitate towards embellishments before paper these days, so I choose my kits based on all the bits of ephemera.

I added a super thin layer of white gesso to the background paper before I started on the layout; I like to tone down busier papers and gesso seems to be the easiest way to do it.  Another thing I find myself doing is making little thread nests, a la Missy Whidden (check out her blog HERE).  I have a huge scrap crush on Missy right now, her style is a big inspiration to me.

What are you doing right now?  Do you find yourself developing a new style or have a new favorite "thing" you're doing on pages lately?
