Lynn here today, I'm back with an extra layout using some left over patterned papers and embellishments from the Papermaze July kit. I simply added a 12" x 12" sheet of Watercolour paper from a pad I purchased at Papermaze.
Before looking at how the layout was made, here is a reminder of the kit:
I started with the water colour paper and made a mixed media background using a selection of Distress Oxide Inks, picked to match the colours on the P13 -When We First Met - # 06 paper. I used Black Soot, Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Dusty Concord, Stormy Sky and Old Paper, diluted with water and flicked, dripped and dropped onto the watercolour paper, then spritzed with more water.
When the paper was dry, I used the remains of the #06 paper from an earlier layout, I tore this down the left side. My piece was about 10cm wide. this was stuck to the right side of the layout.
My photo was mounted onto scraps of 'In the Water Garden' paper, with the lilac side up. The photo was put in place without glueing down. This allowed me to position the embellishments. I used thin strips of paper, the washi tape and the 49 & Market Rub-ons from the kit; arranging pieces of these around three sides of the photo. The matted photo was then attached.
From the remaining scraps of P13, I fussy cut two circles and placed them on top of one another to make a journalling spot. This was positioned top left of the photo. Then I fussy cut some rose clusters and arranged them around the photo, using 3D foam tape.
I tied some Baker's Twine around the journalling spot and tied the star embellishment to this.
I scattered the wooden hearts over the layout.
Finally I added title, date and place using American Crafts Thickers - Happy Life alpha stickers.
Thanks for looking.
