A Day In The Life

This beautiful warm layout is a perfect example of how to mix and match your favorite designers products to create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.  Notice how in this layout the accessories along with the distressing, and modeling paste complement each other.  Gabrielle Pollacco is so very talented and creates so many beautiful layouts.  I recommend stopping by her blog Such A Pretty Mess for some outstanding inspiration.

A Day In The Life

Gabrielle started her layout by choosing a beautiful color combination smokey plums, soft greens, and taupey grey from the ‘Ska vi ta en Fika Collection and mixed it up with the Vintage Summer Collection from Maja Designs.

Gabrielle added some greenery to the page and matted behind the photo with some green paper.  She then added a vine chipboard design and added a few purple roses.

A Day In The Life

Creating a vintage style layout, she added some embellishments such as vintage lace, vintage flowers, and a chipboard clock.

A Day In The Life

Clocks are one of those design elements that work with almost any layout.

A Day In The Life

Adding another fun chipboard piece called Geometric border to her layout, Gabrielle added a few patterened papers behind the small square design.  For the final touch she added rub-on sentiments that look like she personalized her layout.  It’s always such a fun surprise to see what  Gabrielle’s creations will be next.  I would like to send a Big Thank You to Gabrielle for sharing her amazing design with us today.

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a beautiful creative day!
