July Papermaze Kit - Part 2

Hello, Lynn back with more layouts from the July Papermaze Kit. I have created two more layouts, using the exclusive stencil included in the kit. The first two pages I created with this kit can be found here.

A quick reminder of the kit content including the extra cardstock
Kaisercraft - Wandering Ivy, Panelling & Blue Posy
Jillybean Soup – 2 Cool for School, Wild Child
Bo Bunny – Once Upon A Lifetime, Namesake
Simple Stories – Travel Notes, Adventure Awaits
Graphic 45 – Sun Kissed Collection, Sand Dollars
Bazzill Basics cardstock -
Splash, Hilary, Typhoon, White, Rain & Boogieboard.

Jillibean mini alpha, 12" Freckled Fawn washi tape, 2 Dusty Attic word circles, 1 wooden arrow, 4 paper flowers, 1 strip green jewels, 40cm ribbon, 7 Pretty Little Studio leaf die-cuts, 1 Freckled Fawn arrow clip, 1 exclusive chevron stencil.

The first page features a photo of my daughter and her fiancé George, on a recent holiday to Paris.

To make the layout I used the Splash Bazzill as a base, and then cut the Panelling paper into strips along the darker lines. I distressed the edges and inked them with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. Then I rearranged them and stuck them to the cardstock.

Using the chevron stencil I lightly inked the pattern onto the panels with the Hickory Smoke ink.

I die cut stars and a tag from white Bazzill and inked the edges. The mat for the photo was cut from the Sand Dollars paper. A quote was added to the tag, this was cut from the manufacturer's strip on the bottom of the Wandering Ivy paper. I added some twine from my stash.

The chipboard word circle was inked with Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink to match the twine. The title was cut from scraps of Typhoon cardstock (see below*). Both the circle and the title were coated with Diamond glaze to give it a shine.

The arrow clip was stuck to the top of the photo. Finally I added some gems from my stash.

The second layout was created with a photo of my brother with the books he has written and had published. The photo was taken in preparation for the next publication and the 'About the Author' page. 

I trimmed the Rain cardstock down to 11.5" x 11.5" then with Stormy Sky Distress Ink and the stencil I worked my way round the edges of the cardstock, varying the depth of the image as I went.

This was then mounted onto a gutted sheet of Typhoon*cardstock. From the leftover patterned papers I cut lots of strips about 1.5cm x 13.5 cm, some of these were cut in to arrows, all were inked with the Stormy Sky ink. I then die cut additional arrows with the Little B arrow die set. Together with two strips of Washi Tape from the kit I arranged these down the centre of the page. 

The photo was mounted onto a scrap of Boogieboard cardstock and placed it near the top left of the layout. My title was created with some letter stickers from my stash. 

Finally I used the Pretty Little Studio leaf die-cuts to create clusters in two corners and added the wooden arrow too.

I will be back later in the month with some ideas for the August kit.
Thanks for looking.
