Red, White & Blue with Little Yellow Bicycle

Happy 4th of July to my American friends!
Today, I have a red, white, and blue layout for you... not patriotic in theme, but what lovely colors.


For this layout, I used mainly the Vintage Summer Collection from Little Yellow Bicycle:
VS-102 Patchwork Quilt/Red Microcheck
VS-104 Navy Tiny Floral/Ticking Stripe
VS-106 Grandma's Garden/Red Flower & Flourish
VS-107 Red Floral/Light Blue Microcheck
VS-109 Picnic Check/Navy Stars
JB-102 Just Be You Bands/Linen & Lace - Gray
VS-135 Favorite Pieces Stickers - with thermography and embossing (32 pieces)
VS-140 Fresh Verse Stickers - with debossing and thermography (43 pieces)
NA-BS100 Burlap Stickers - Flags

Here are some close-up shots
                      

Steps:
1. Tear narrow strips from various red, white, and blue patterned papers. 
2. Attach the strips along the left edge of the page overlapping each other. Curl up some of the edges for texture and dimension by pressing up with your finger.
3. Layer patterned papers together to create a mat for the photo. 
4. Tear off some border sticker and attach below the photo. 
5. Add title and some sticker embellishments.
6. Color burlap flag stickers blue. Attach above the photo. Embellish banner with sticker.
7. Journal above and below the photo.
8. Machine stitch to secure the elements in place as well as for added texture and interest.
9. Cover the photo with paper and splatter some red, white, and blue paints to finish.

Thanks for stopping by!
