Being brave with patterned paper




Shimelle's prompt two was to use patterned paper for a background.
I've had this paper in my stash for quite a while and the colour never inspired me,so just because, I decided to go with it - then I decided to go all out and use one of the papers from Tim Holtz's collections that I never thought I'd  use just to give it a go. I've used this photo before but it was sitting in my box on the top and the colours seemed to fit- so this really is a ' using up of odds and ends layout - I hadn't got enough 'e's either for the title so 'luv' was used instead - but then the word 'luv' was very 'in' during the '70's wasn't it??-
Checkout the flared jeans and awful sandals !

The papers really do go with that pic from the 70s, and the spelling of the title makes me think of Slade's greatest hits!
Great photo, well worth scrapping twice!

The papers are perfect - you have completely achieved a 70's look and I love it!
