I have long been an admirer of Christine Middlecamp's gorgeous work - I just LOVE the detail she has on each layout, and yet the overall design is always crisp with plenty of white space...I also love the way she uses colour.....and layers her embellishments...I could go on...lol. But I was really taken by this little technique she posted a couple of weeks back on paper pleating - and was inspired to use it on several layouts.
Pleating can be seen in this closeup below:
"Handmade Dreads" - A busy kind of layout for sure, but I loved the colours of the Cosmo Cricket paper mixed with old 7Gypsies...mixed with some Hambly...old K&Co chipboard..I love to mix it up. The closeup of the paper 'pleats' can be seen above - I used some old book paper for a subtle effect.
