Echo Park " Capture Life" & Kaisercraft "Outdoor Trail" - By Linda Eggleton

Hi everyone & thanks for popping in for a visit today :)
I have another layout to share using Echo Park's "Capture Life" collection.
And I know I am repeating myself here, but this seriously is a super versatile collection :)
This is my 4th layout....and this one is using teal & yellow tones for a bit of a beachy layout...even though that's not what the layout is about.
"Tossed Salad - on the run"
I've used the gorgeous Damask paper for my background....I love the colour of this & the fabulous damask pattern. No need for any background work with this one :)

I've added some Green Tara & Petaloo flowers, 2Crafty lightbulb, some OA flairs & stickers from the alphabet sticker sheet - including the fun....  to form my main cluster.

And here's a 2nd smaller cluster....and how cute is that fab little typewriter?!?!
It was cut from one of the images on the "Memories" paper and is sitting up on some foam tape :)

I've added a couple of scrap strips of paper with blue tones in under the title to help
break up the yellows.

And as you can see I've layered yellow/golden tones, along with a bit of black & white in under the photos, which mixed with the teal tie in well with the colours of the photos....of silly me eating salad with my hands, out of a plastic bag!.....on the run LOL!! 
I also have a few of my Kaisercraft DT project to share using the "Outdoor Trail" collection.
I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with this collection and just love how my layouts have turned out.  This collection would suit any type of outdoor layout - not just camping, fishing etc.
First up is this layout....
"Take a Hike"
I've used the dark wood panelled paper, "Bush" for the background and I've lightened it slightly by adding some dabbed on gesso & some template work using one of the new KC templates - Quarters, which has 4 different patterns on the one stencil!!   There's also some stamping over the top of the textured background work - but it's probably a bit hard to see it here

Here's a bit of a close up of the stencil/background work and the stamping
is a bit more visible here too.

I've layered pieces of PP, Collectables & also paper from the Paper Pad in under my photo.

As well as at the top of the page.

Another layout.....
"Along the Selfie Trail"
This time I've used a lighter paper for the background (Frontier) and have added some stamping using KC Chevron well as some of the word stamps in the Outdoor Trail stamp pack.

Again, lots of Collectables & around my cluster, plus in amongst my paper layers & at the top & bottom of the page.

A cluster of blooms & Collectables.
Have you ever noticed that there is ALWAYS the pefect coloured Kaisercraft paper bloom to match the colours in any of their collections??? I love that <3


A few more Collectables pieces layered at the bottom of the page, also with stickers
from the Sticker sheet.

Love those arrows from the Collectables pack!!
