Kaisercraft - Romantique Part 2

Hello, Lynn here today with my second layout using the delightful Kaisercraft Romantique collection. I have used another old black and white photo, this time of my mother and her cousin when they were children.

I have selected the grey, silvery, black and white papers from this collection together with the magnificent Butterflies Printed Acetate.

I used a sheet of silvery grey Bazzill as the base, then added the strip of 'Eiffel' paper left over from my first project. In fact the whole page was based on using this left-over piece as I love the hydrangea design. With 'Fig Swirl' Bazzill I made scalloped edges for the paper using a punch, and tucked these under the long sides of the paper. I cut a small doily in half and tucked these under the scalloped edges too.

My photo was mounted with a narrow border, also using the Fig Swirl card.  Then with words from the manufacturer's strip of one of the papers, I arranged some around the photo.

I took one of the chipboard pieces from a pack of three Romantic Page Dangles by Blue Fern Studio and decorated this for the left side of the page. I heat embossed it with Stampendous Frantage, Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel. Then I filled in some of the holes with Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops in Wedgewood Blue and Glitter Drops in Silver Moondust. I also used the Glitter drops to add a tiny drop to each of the scallops.  From my stash I added a small piece of chain and ribbon to the top of the chipboard.

My 'Cousins' title was cut using a Sizzix die and the Fig Swirl card and some Crystal Stickles.  I wanted to have a different font for the 'And Friends' part of the title, so I used some very old Making Memories Rub-On letters. I thought these would split over the stickles so I rubbed them onto a piece of acetate and cut it out close to the letters, I stuck this in place with Glossy Accents. The names were added with some tiny type letters.

As before I cut out a selection of acetate butterflies and bending the wings up stuck the bodies in place with more Glossy Accents. This time I wanted some of the butterflies to appear to be resting on things. I found that by folding back a wing and twisting it slightly, I could see both wings and stick it in place where needed.

Finally I made a small cluster of embellishments with a butterfly, embossed hearts from the chipboard and some bling. 

Now that the page is complete, it reminds me of one I scraplifted back last summer, using the Indigo Blue papers and a layout designed by Kylie Kingham for the Kaisercraft Design Team - it was great inspiration.

Thanks for looking, I will be back with another layout soon.
