Honeycomb and Chocolate!

Hi everyone I have a scrap layout for you all today, which is my DT Post for the Robin's Nest, and where I got to play some more with my New Gelatos from Faber Castell.

I don't use brown/orange tones much but when first I saw the Distressed Honeycomb Paper from The Robin's Nest, I fell in love. So much so that I had to add to my honeycomb addiction and get more of the wonderful paper Robin's Nest variations in this color such as Glitter Brown Daisies on Honeycomb and, Honeycomb Linen Fleur both of which have stripes on their reverse sides. 

Just like the honeycomb you eat its a perfect match with chocolate.  This combination is perfect for a male themed scrap page, mine today is some photos from my hubby's 45th Birthday earlier this year.


For my layout my background is a piece of Distressed Honeycomb Paper and I have used the other papers I mentioned above for accents.  I have stamped and stencilled and scribbled over the background using ink and my Gelato Pens, and a combination of stamps from the Unity Stamp Company's SMAK Kits and a piece of Punchinella. The two little banners were made by punching hearts in the striped and fleur papers and threading them on some paper cord.
