I am so excited that today is my first official day as a Trendy Twine designer and I am participating in our first group post. The Trendy Gals have some beautiful creations to share with you today and tomorrow so please stop by the Trendy Twine blog and check out all of the fabulous projects.
This stars and stripes layout as I refer to it was created with the Stand and Salute cartridge. For this single page 12x12 layout, I began with patterned paper from the DCWV Summer Stack which already had a patriotic theme. I cut several stars from white glitter paper in 3 different sizes (2.0, 1.5 and 1.0 inches) and added them to the page on a diagonal. The title was added to the top of the layout, however, I cut off 2 additional stars from the title so that it would fit better.
The frame was added to the top of the stars with some pops dots and I added some twine stripes to my frame to give it a more patriotic appearance. I used Berry Red Trendy Twine for the twine stripes, for outlining the stars and also added it to the star buttons.
