Today I'm going to share with you the first layout I made using July's kit. The browns and blues really lend themselves to a masculine layout, and I've used a photo of my husband on a trip to Paris. I used the reverse of the BoBunny Tapestry paper for my base and gutted the centre so I could use some of the blue side on the layout too.
I really like the hessian in the kit and the texture that it gives - I've used it as a mat behind the photo, and also behind a tear at the top of the page. I've also unwoven a few strands and tied them in a knot in the centre of the layout.
It's the first time I've used Tim Holtz kraft glassine and I enjoyed experimenting with it. I embossed it firstly and ran a distress ink pad lightly over the top.
The glassine can also be creased very easily, so I cut out some ivy leaves, inked them and added the veins by folding and creasing.
You can find the July kit here, along with a co-ordinating cardstock pack. I'll show you a completely different layout using the kit next time!
