All that glitters is gold

This layout is one of shiny gold.  I have never been a gold fan and seriously have been in love with all the gold elements in scrapbookin lately...go figure.  I love that scrapbooking can force you to get away from your comfort zone sometimes and experiment with new things.  I love the gold foil paper on this layout and really wanted it to be a main point so I didn't add much embellishing on the right side so I didn't take away from the paper. 

Here's a full look at the layout.  I also added three little chevrons that I embossed with Zing Metallic gold, love the gold!

I always try to take my pictures in the sunlight to capture the best photos and you can see the sun just making the gold shine here, love that!  I added a cluster of embellishments over the right corner of my picture.  A Freckled Fawn paperclip, an Elle's Studio tag, a little tidbit from October Afternoon with a sentiment with the Dear Lizzy stamp, and a die cut with my cameo that I watercolored

Here's a close up at the dimension of the labels all along the left side.  I used one line of stitching to adhere all these little labels down, using a mix of Elle's Studio and some My Mind's Eye.  Oh and of course, a brad from October Afternoon.

Thank you for stopping by <3

  4. Very pretty! I know what you mean about gold; I like it as jewellery but I wasn't very keen on it in scrapbooking until recently with all the beautiful gold accents and paper that's come out. Really love how you've incorporated the gold in different ways onto your page.
