Gossamer Blue | blog hop...

hello there and welcome to Gossamer Blue's first inspiration blog hop where the GB team has come together to bring you inspiration using October kits.

if you've arrived from Brenda Weaver site, then you're in the right place! have you been having fun creating with this months kits? i know i have. i really loved the bold colors and geometric patterns in this months collection. today's inspiration layout is a little something extra i wanted to create because i loved the kit that much and because it felt great to create a little something extra all for fun!

Supplies used to create this page can be found in October's main kit, bits & pieces, main add-on kit and life pages kit.

for my page, i kept it simple and combined bold colors with simple graphic patterns, stripes and polka dots to compliment my family photo. the wood veneer frame was perfect and i used simple accents to surround it and the photo. the 'L' wood veneer anchors atop the frame to complete the sticker phrase. then i colored it with a gold metallic pen to continue the gold accents throughout the page.

i rarely use hidden journaling, so this was a fun addition to my page using like colors as the background. combined stamps from both main and life pages kits. the title treatment for the layout design is cut out from my Cameo wrapped around and framing the 8x8 design. this was fun and i love how it turned out. adding the bold yellow cardstock really balances out the overall page design perfectly.

thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my page... hope it inspires you to play with titles. next up is Danielle Flanders... head on over to her page for more inspiration.

here's a complete list to keep you on track with the blog hop...
