Guest Designer for Pion Designs

Hello friends! Wow, it's been almost half a year since I've done a scrappy post! LOL!

Well, I'm honored to announce that I have been asked to GT for Pion Designs for the next three months! I'm totally excited because I'm able to work with their new collection, The Songbird's Secret. These papers are in the lovely pastel shades of blue, green and yellow. They have the cutest birds and nests.....perfect for Spring!

 I love to use vintage photos on my pages and Pion paper's are perfect for that! They have that old time elegance that surely brings center light to the photo. Here I used the creamy yellows and soft greens.

Products Used:
Pendants: PD8405
Dream Catchers: PD8403
Apple Blossom: PD8409
Tags: PD8412

 Pion also make the papers in 6x6 size, great for cardmakers. Although, I wanted to incorporate them into a layout. So, I took once sheet, cut out the four design, trimmed 1/8" off each side and distress. Then, glued on to a piece of cardstock.

Products Used:
Nesting Birds 6x6: PD8501
Blooming Branches: PD8407
Memory Notes: PD8411

On this page I used a bit of mixed media consisting of water color and modeling paste. I absolutely loved the half page design of the paper and wanted to compliment it by adding a torn edge to the other side. The soft color of  blues in the paper make it possible to add other blue tones to blend well.
