Artsy Urban- GCD Studios

Been having a blast playing around with the 12x12 pad of GCD Studios Artsy Urban paper by Melody Ross. The small floral patterns and flocked pages are fantastic. I love the color too- lots of bright red, blue and yellow combined with black and white- very graphically interesting and sophisticated.
Here are 2 new pages using both their large and small 6x6 pads. I wish I had found some of their gorgeous embellishments but Michael's in NYC is always suffering from the store is half empty syndrome.
First up:
Materials: GD Studios Artsy Urban paper, pad 12x12 and 6x6, Sew Easy stitch tool, Pop dots, Uni ball pen
These phrases are from on of the papers in the pad!
Spent a whole day freeing butterflies from their page. I turned one over and I realized I loved the yellow print underneath just as much.
That project is about failure and I'm talking to myself. I talk to myself in a lot of pages- here I'm saying don't take it to heart- time to rise up.

Here is the second page:
Artsy Urban Chic
Materials: GCD Artsy Urban Paper by Melody Ross, Studio Calico wood veneer alphas, Maya Road bingo motifs, pop dots, couple of fortune cookie fortunes.
This one was harder to put together. I couldn't decide how to organize the paper into a fluid backdrop. Now I realize I should have made the backdrop out of squares stitched together like a quilt. I think I'm going to redo this page.

And finally- a cute shot taken with my new iTouch Hipstamatic- love this gadget!

MuChoS SmOoChEs!
