I said, I am embellishment challenged. I love them...I just don't tend to use lots of them on a page, at one time, together even. I think I've been this way ever since I read a post on the old Two Peas board that someone said that pages with lots of embellishments, "looked like someone had vomited embellishments all over a page". That's just gross. And it was one of those statements that someone makes who is looking to provoke...but it was such a gross thing to say, it's stuck with me for y.e.a.r.s.
But I have made it a mission lately to overcome this phobia or weirdness of mine and learn to use all these lovely things that arrive in our kits.
I used a page from Jennifer McCurtrey on the Scrapbook Blog as my inspiration!
There's really not much to talk about...it was really was such a simple matter to sit and piece these pretty little chipboard pieces together, kind of like a scrapbook puzzle! So here's some close ups.
Not quite sure how often I will use this particular technique, but it sure did make a dent in my embellishments!
The items I used from outside the kit are the scraps I cut the photo corner triangles from and the floral gems (gosh I've been hoarding those for years, glad to see some on a page finally!).
I will probably always struggle a bit with using lots of embellishment pieces on a page, but I'm working on it! And enjoying it!
