WRMK Indian Summer - By Linda Eggleton

 Hi everyone & welcome.

Today I have another layout to share featuring the utterly gorgeous
"Indian Summer" collection from WRMK.
It has been such a joy to work with this collection so far......I think I'd have to rate it up there as one of my all time favourite collections :) 
The colours are simply is the patterns on each of the papers.

"Dublin Famine Statues"

For this page, I wanted to keep the background fairly plain, so that the 2Crafty Square Collage Panel didn't get lost in patterns etc on the background. So I have used the Whitewash paper & just simply flicked a few random mists around and then built my page from there.

I have slightly coloured the square collage panel with a brown rubbing the gelato over the chipboard piece & then using a wet brush, I spread the colour around.  I wasn't too particular about the coverage, as I wanted to depict the feel of the statues, which were quite rustic & dull.

For my cluster I've used one of the flowery stickers from the embossed sticker sheet as the base, and then have added a variety of flowers (see list of products at the bottom of post), a Flutterby flair & some punched butterflies. There's also another embossed sticker at the bottom of the the mustardy coloured arrow that is an offcut of one of the frames in the Jouranl Card pack (I dont't think it was meant to be in that was a little bonus!)

I've also added another smaller cluster at the opposite side of the photo...again using a variety of flowers & one of the gears from the 2Crafty Gears pack, which I've coloured with a variety of gelatos to depict the colours in the statues. And I've used a leftover piece from last weeks layout, the embossed doily that I cut off .

I cut some of the small triangle arrows from the Carefree paper to run across the bottom of the page, with a piece added that I've cut off one of the frames from the Journal Cards pack. I also added a few arrows to the opposite top right of the layout to help balance things out a bit.  The Journal card pack really is excellent value....there are so many pieces in the pack & they would be fabulous for pocket style scrapping as well as for normal layouts.
I added my journaling onto some Kraft cardstock, cut into strips & inked the edges.
Title is some old alpha stickers from my stash....Sassafras & Prima.

And here is a close up view of the main area of the once again hightlight the fabulous 2Crafty Square Collage Panel....which I cut into a few pieces & spread around so that there was some showing around most sides of the photo.
Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my work.
I hope you have been inspired by this amazing collection!
Until next time...happy scrapping :) xx
