Hey everyone!  This week on the blog we’re mixing it up with our collections and I thought I’d start out the week by mixing it up with a 12×12 canvas using bits of things from two of my favorite Fancy Pants collections, Office Suite  and Flutter.

As far as mixing patterns goes, it’s probably one of my very favorite things so using some letters from each collection just spices things up a little bit more.  And what a perfect solution for those times when you’re starting to run low on letters from one collection. Combining takes you that much further. :)

By cutting the wing for the bird out of a paper from the other collection it really helped me pull the colors together that much more.

I created my circle frame with the gold foil chevron paper from the Flutter collection. After tracing my circle with a black sharpie onto the canvas, I  cut out and adhered the individual pieces from the gold foil chevron paper evenly spaced around the circle.

It’s amazing how many of the Fancy Pants collections have papers that work well together.  It’s fun to mix it up a bit. It’s like making a whole other collection all your own.

Break out those papers, get creative, and have fun!
