Time for an Adventure

 Today it's Lisa with you and it's time for a little adventure.....

I've chosen to work with these 'outsidey' papers from Kaisercraft. The collection is called 'Mountain Air'. You can view the whole collection here.
You don't have to have been on a mountain to enjoy these papers. Anything outdoorsy with a little adventure fits perfectly. I'm going to show you today how I made this collection work for me...with no mountain in sight.
We stayed at Disney's Wilderness Lodge in the Summer. It's green and beautiful. I instantly thought of this resort when I saw these papers. The trees, the wood effect, the stags.
You'll' notice a few red arrows throughout the page. These were actually cut out from a sticker strip from this 12x12 sticker sheet here.  I love this sticker sheet. Never be afraid to cut them up if they don't fit.

I did the same thing here. The long word sticker strips were all cut up to fit.

I also used some sticky foam pads to the back of some of the stickers to give them some height. Otherwise the page can appear a little flat. Add some foam pads to the back and suddenly the page just POPS!!
It was the 12x12 paper here that inspired this page.
Not all of them suited but I did cut out the ones that did and created this grid. I laid and stuck everything in place before I added the photos and I measured the size they needed to be to fit the gaps and printed them.
I love this page and how it came together, I think it really needed the red to break it up a little, so these colours from the collection are so well balanced.
I'm so pleased I picked this collection to work with despite not using any mountain photos. It works so well.
Thanks for visiting today and I hope you've enjoyed this page.
