Heidi Swapp Vintage Chic - by Linda Eggleton

 Good morning scrappers, and welcome to the AAS blog :)
Today I have a layout to share using Heidi Swapp - Vintage Chic papers.
I absolutely adore the colours & patterns in this range, and have used them to create a layout with pics from our trip to The Great Ocean Road a year or so ago.
My layout is based on the February sketch at Scrap365
"The Greatest View"
I've used one of the plainer papers for my base, with a mixture of more coloured & patterned papers layered behind the photos.
(A full list of product names with links to the AAS store can be found at the bottom of my post)

My cluster with Green Tara & Petaloo flowers....2 Crafty chipboard leaves, that I left raw to help tie in with the colours of the photos & layout, plus a Flutterby Designs flair button - that comes in a pack of 7 with each day of the week on them.

Title is using some leftover alpha stickers from last months kit - Simple Stories "I {heart} summer", with a few Echo Park brads & a little glimpse of some background work.
Some more raw 2 Crafty - chevrons, and Echo Park brads

I've added a torn strip of Prima washi tape to the top & bottom of the layout, and I have journaled along the top of the piece at the bottom of the page. 
Here you can see the background work a bit better too....some stencil work using a Prima stencil & some Impasto medium mixed with Trunk Bay glimmermist.  The Impasto Medium is great for mixing with paints, glimmermist etc as the Impasto dries clear, so when you mix it with your paint or glimmermist, there is no fading of the colour like when you mix it with other mediums that dry white.  Plus there's some stamping with my new Kaisercraft "Tiny dot' stamp (which I love!) & some drips & drops of Trunk Bay Glimmermist.

And here is a close up of the main area of the page. 
I hope you have been inspired by today's visit :)
Thanks so much for dropping by.
