Hello & welcome to the blog. Today I have another layout to share with you that I created using the “Vintage Autumn Basics” collection. I have used four papers in all from the collection, the XX1, XX11 & XX111 & I also cut a few clock faces from the XV1. I really love this collection. It is funny because I NEVER scrap with blue, aqua yes, but never blue but I found this collection so easy to work with & I am really happy how it turned out.
I started this layout off by tearing the three different papers to layer up & the pieces I tore off the bottom I then stuck down underneath my photo to create an extra splash of colour. I have also added some twine for added texture too.
I have brushed on some watered down blue mist to add even more colour. I cut out a few clocks from the “XV1” paper & placed them around the layout. I also created a frame for my photos from some natural coloured raffia.
I think these three papers look so lovely teamed together.
I have also tucked some lace in between the layers for added texture. Lots of flowers, I just cannot create without using flowers. 🙂
I have also added some nice chipboard pieces from 2Crafty Chipboard which I brushed over with a little “Kraft” coloured mist to give them a warm & natural feel.
To finish off I added some small pieces of blue mesh to add to the textural feel of my layout. I just adore lots of texture in my work.
Well thats all from me today, see you back here in a couple of weeks time with another project.
Di I absolutely love this layout! You do such a fantastic job of layering – I agree these papers go so well together. I also love that the blues are a true blue The natural color elements you added are perfect, and, of course, the photos are adorable.
Thanks for your kind words Kathy, I am so glad you like it. 🙂
