Ice Cream Truck

There is so much we can learn from this sweet layout by Audrey! She mixed several paper collections but did it very subtly. So, it may be a little tricky to spot the different collections.

Another thing we can learn is how to look at a piece of paper in a new way. You may see this sweet treat paper and think.. that would be great for photos of eating treats at the fair. But, Audrey recognized how perfect it is for ICE CREAM! Try thinking of how a paper will work with your photos.

Audrey also shows us how to create your own embellishment. She made an ice cream cone by cutting the shapes she needed out of patterned paper. She finished her custom-made embellishment with glitter and a cherry (button) on top.

Audrey explains more, "I used papers from 'A Fair Day' and 'With All My Heart' (the title and journaling areas), and Moonrise (ice cream cone). I made the large ice cream cone by hand cutting some papers from the collection, following the shape of some of the small cones on the patterned papers. I also wanted to highlight the title area and journaling area a bit more, so I machine stitched the outside of the circles with a teal colored thread that matched the papers!"

Thanks, Audrey! Don't forget to stop by Audrey's blog and share the excitement of the good news she shared last month. There are some precious photos that go with the announcement too!
