Well another month has begun and we have a new kit in store at Scraptures. This month the kit is Crate Paper-Brook. The texture of this paper is wonderful and the colours are so bright and cheerful and really have a great summer feel to them. Nice to see this geared to adults and not just the fun filled kid themes that are out there. I loved all of the product that was sent in this kit, and it really helped the creating process flow.
I created several projects using this kit and it was just amazing to see how much you could get done with one kit! I love it!This layout was so much fun! I loved cutting the wavy paper, which helped to resemble the breeze of the day. Although it was a hot day in Fort Erie, there was a warm breeze. I loved being able to cut this paper up and layer in an unusual way to add dimension to my page. Adding the chipboard piece and pop dotting the phrase also helped to bring even more dimension to my layout. I love to work in layers, with lots of detail to dimension.
My second project is another page using lots of layering and dimension. I used the yellow scallop card stock and cut out circles to add to make a more flowing background to the layout. The yellow was just too much, and although it really did compliment everything nicely, I just needed less of the yellow showing. Chipboard pieces, pop dots and ink also help to bring in that added dimension that I was looking for here.
Now for my last layout I cut out lots of circles from the pattern paper so that I could do lots of layering and dimensional work here. I just love to be able to take a piece of paper and get lots and lots of mileage out of it. I also cut out the flowers from a secondary pattern paper and created 2 butterflies for my page, using a button and a brad for each of their bodies. I did add some wire for antennas that was not included in the kit. Of course, I pop dotted the butterflies, as well as several of the circles. I added buttons for even more dimension and to keep with the circle feel to this layout. The combination of circles, flower butterflies and the wavy paper sliced and diced, I really like the flow showed in this layout.
