Some Odd Girl

Sadly, my DT term with Some Odd Girl is coming to an end this month. I had such a great time working with Kristy and the rest of the team, and getting to play with the amazing Nouveau girls. As this is my last project, I wanted to make something for my “me” scrap album that would really help me remember my time with Some Odd Girl. I decided to make a layout incorporating all of the 8 available Nouveau girl stamp sets that I got to work with over the last 6 months.

I used a more muted collection – this is “Butterfly Garden” by Pink Paislee – to make sure that everything went well together and none of the elements overshadowed any of the others. This collection also had a lot of great subtle prints, such as pale text in the background, etc., which made it perfect for stamping the girls on it. I love the effect of stamping on patterned paper. It makes for a very artsy and collage-like effect. The words, sentiments, and cloud, I also got from the stamp sets. I added just a touch of color to the girls’ lips.

hope you guys liked my layout. I think stamping your images on the more muted B-sides of the paper collection you’re working with is a great way to get an embellishment that will match and enhance your layout. Thanks for stopping by!
