Bundles of Bling

I love to create simple layouts accented with bundles of bling. It's easy to create cute little clusters to highlight your photos and make your pages pop like in this layout made with the Avonlea papers. Here are a few tips on how to make your own bundles of bling: 

1) use odd numbers of accents; 
2) arrange your embellishments in triangular shapes for balance; 
3) raid your stash - clusters are a great way to use up left over accents you have laying around; 
4) don't be afraid to combine different textures.
