Hello everyone, this week I have a layout to share created using the fab collection Sea Breeze by Kaisercraft. I just love the wood grains, turquoise and mint greens with a mix of black and brown contrasts.
I do tend to use white as my base paper in layouts but this wood grain just had to be used with its weathered look.
I adore photos that are not poised and this shot of me with my four children walking hand
in hand in a field at dusk is one of my all time favourites.
Firstly I splattered the wood grain base paper with mint colour shine.
I then painted the 2crafty chipboard butterfly in white and when dried I sprayed lightly
over it in the mint green colour shine so it would tie in with my background.
I cut a diagonal corner and half inch strip from Refresh paper. I then sewed them down.
From the die cut pack I chose a sentiment that would go with my photo and sewed that
down over the already sewn corner.
I have then layered under my photo starting with the darkest green paper to the lightest mint
green. I have also sewn in a random fashion on these paper pieces. Usually I don't ink with
pine cone but felt it suited this more rustic layout.
I always cut off the border strips from each sheet of paper before I start my layouts, most
these days have some form of pattern on them that can be used on your layout. You will see
the heart strip that has been sewn on is from a border strip (you can use these as a form
of washi tape).
Sewing will add extra texture and interest to your layout.
I foam taped the heart sticker over lapping on my photo and then attached the 'smile'
die cut sentiment over the lower right of my photo.
