Hello again! I've got another Color Room layout to share with you today. Like I wrote about in my last post, I again used the Graphic 45 "Domestic Goddess" alphabet sheet to add a pattern of circles to this layout, called "Rings."
I also used some circular elements (including die cuts and a doily), to play up the dots. The circles, plus the romantic color palette, made me think of engagement/wedding rings. The journaling on my layout reads: "Our engagement rings were local Black Hills gold. We loved their colors so much! They're "so us!""
I read on Wikipedia that in times past thimbles were sometimes used as engagement rings. Intrigued by that bit of information, I decided to incorporate a raspberry pink thimble image into my design. Continuing in the sewing vein, I also incorporated a button card and a scrap of lace, and I sewed lengths of tulle to my layout in the form of a frame.
Do you remember this cluster of foam flower stickers, from a previous Color Room layout?
I saved the backing pieces from those flowers, because I liked their translucence. I tucked a few of these backing pieces behind the tulle on my "Rings" layout, creating a white-on-white look that has a "wedding" feel to it.
