Ideas for Using the Bloom Street Paper #10 by Paige Evans for Pink Paislee / American Crafts
I ordered 2 sheets of this beautiful patterned scrapbooking paper, and I LOVE IT! The side with the watercolor washes is PERFECT for scrapping the outdoorsy layouts that I tend to make most frequently — where I want the paper to coordinate with the sky and the grass in my pictures. If would be interested in making a scrapbooking layout featuring one or more photos that feature both blue sky and green grass, whether they were taken in your backyard or while you were on vacation at some interesting location, the watercolor-y side of this paper is likely to be a fantastic choice of backgrounds for your layout.
The other side of this paper is super pretty too. There are zillions of possible ways to use it, but I’d personally cut out small bits of it to use as accents in various projects.
