Let’s talk about all the bits and bobs or the doo dads and whatchamacallits that are lying around our craft stashes. I have been on a mission to get through the little pieces I have or find them another home. Less is definitely more in my craft room at the moment! Amongst the growing piles of unopened packages, I had a pack of coloured wooden circles from an old Ali Edwards Story Kit. I wasn’t sure if I’d ever use them but today was going to be the day that I would try. It took a little while but I went back to one of my favourite techniques where I simply put them in a grid. It seems so obvious when you have too many pictures but why not use it when you have too many embellishments? I always find grid layouts so appealing! It didn’t take long to lay out the 6 pieces on a 4×6” journal card.

With that I got to work with this project pairing the circles with a photo that made me even happier than the bright colours of the circles. With each little bit and bob, I placed them on the page. I kept layering the circles up to give each one a little extra flavour! And of course, helped me work through my stash as well. This layout makes me happy – the photo, the colour and the fact that I used a full package of circles!! Consider using a grid for your embellishments next time you sit down to create!!
