Trendy Tuesday: I Love Indigo

Did a little trend stalking while shopping at Anthropologie this weekend. I have also noticed this trend in home decor and fashion. It’s indigo blue! There is something so appealing about it and it reminds me of elaborate china patterns and rich looking textiles. Of course scrapbooking paper patterns will not be far behind!  This trend was the inspiration behind my layout today using the June Clique Kits kit called La Dolce Vita.

To make this layout I cut my title using a file downloaded from the Silhouette Studio shop from a sheet of white cardstock that I had prepped with white gesso and then painted with blue watercolor paint. Gesso helps to make a clean cut after the cardstock has been painted as long as it is sufficiently dry. I also liked the effect of some of the white showing through and giving it a distressed look.

Here is a close up of some embellishments added from my stash of leftovers from a previous Clique Kit. There are some of the January and February kits still available in the shop, along with some of the Amy Tangerine washi tape!

Using indigo in this layout featuring my daughter in that blue shirt was a no brainer! I love how it came out!

I hope to see you back tomorrow for the Clique Kits monthly pep rally!
