September Papermaze Kit - Part 2

Lynn here today, back with the second pair of layouts using the Papermaze September Kit. The travel destination themed papers inspired me to stick with my continental theme from before, and create two more Parisian layouts featuring the artwork of the Metro station kiosks.

Before looking at how the layouts were made, here is a reminder of what you will find in the kit. For full details, please see earlier Blog post PART 1.

Metropolitan - This layout shows a photo of the entrance to the Art Nouveau style metro entrance designed by Hector Gumard. I wanted to pick out the colour and style of the cast iron kiosk to the Rome Station and so I used embossing enamel, and a font and to create the title.

To make this page I started by gutting the sheet of Ciao Bella - The Sound of Summer collection - Coastal Wood. Then I trimmed the Natural Bazzill down to 28cm x 28cm and inked the edges with Gathered twigs Distress Ink (I treated all the cut edges of the layout with the same ink), this was placed over the wood frame.

From the sheet of
Simple Stories - Simple Vintage Coastal collection - Paradise Found I fussy cut the palm tree and flowers and set them aside. Then from the rest of the sheet I punched two rows of Daisy fans using the Martha Stewart deep border punch. Then I cut three rows of fans from the Quartz Bazzill and two rows from the Mocha Divine Bazzill. These were trimmed to different lengths and arranged on the page. I divided the washi tape into three pieces and added two of them to the page between rows of punched Bazzill (saving the last piece of washi tape for the next page). 

I typed my journalling and printed it out, then mounted it and the photo onto the pink map side of the Paradise Found paper. I arrange these onto the page together with the palm tree and flowers. and glued them in place, the photo and journalling were glued flat and the tree and flowers were mounted with 3D foam tape.

Next the title - I chose an Art Nouveau style font and adjusted the size of the letters so they were larger at the beginning and end and faded to smaller in the centre. I used some of the Mocha Divine Bazzill to cut the title, then embossed the letters with Stampendous Frantage Aged Teal Embossing Enamel. I arranged the letters across the top of the layout.

I embellished the page with some large flat-backed pearls and some pink gems. I also used the two thought tokens, tied with some of the twine from the kit and placed at them base of the tree.

Palais Royal - Kiosque des Noctambules - For this page, I chose a photo of the Palace Colette entrance to the Palaise Royal Station where we alighted for the
Muśee de Louvre.  This amazing structure designed by Jean-Michel Othaniel is made of blown glass beads threaded onto an aluminum structure. It is called 'The Kiosk of the Night Walkers' and has two cupolas - one representing day, the other night.

First I gutted the Blue Bazzill to make a frame 2.5cm deep. Over this I mounted the
Bo Bunny - Boulevard collection - De Versailles paper trimmed to 29cm x 29cm, print side up. I distressed the edges and inked them with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. (the same ink was used to ink all the paper and card edges for this layout.) A piece 22cm x 17cm was gutted from the De Versailles paper and saved for later (for cutting position, see photo and gut under trimmed Blue Bazzill).

I cut remaining Blue Bazzill to measure 26cm x 21cm and trimmed the two long edges with a border punch (I used a Martha Stewart punch). This was placed over the gap on the paper. I flipped the piece of De Versailles paper harlequin side up and attached this over the trimmed Blue Bazzill.

I used some scraps of Stonehenge Bazzill and cut a 15.5cm scalloped circle and two scalloped strips 28cm x 3cm. I punched holes along the strips and laced them together with some cream seam binding ribbon. This was attached down the right side of the page with 3D foam tape. The scalloped circle was decorated with a 13.5 cm circle of
Ciao Bella - The Sound of Summer collection - Coastal Wood paper, music side up. The whole scalloped circle was mounted over the scalloped strips 9cm down from the top of the page.  

I mounted the photo onto a scrap of the Coastal Wood paper and this was placed onto the left of the layout, again I used 3D foam tape.

To represent the day cupola I used red and yellow gems in a line above and below the photo on the harlequin points of the De Versailles paper. I used blue and aqua gems on the scallops to represent the night cupola.  

For the title I used Pinkfresh Puffy Studio Puffy Alpha Stickers - Joyful Day. The subtitle was created with Pinkfresh Studio Mini Puffy Alpha Stickers - Everyday Musings and Just a Little Lovely. 
I typed the journalling and mounted it onto Blue Bazzill, then I attached it to the circle. 
I used the blue flower from the kit, with a few fronds punched from scraps of patterned paper using a Martha Stewart punch. 

Finally I used the last piece of washi tape and ran this along the bottom of the layout. 

That's all for the September kit, I will be back with October's kit soon.
Thanks for looking.
