Flowers In Her Hair with Hide and Seek

Hello,

Karen here with the first of my August pages – where has the year gone?  This month I have the fun and funky Hide and Seek collection to play with.  I was delighted when I opened my DT box of goodies to find this particular range as I had really hoped that Chrissy would choose this one for me to work with.  What I love about this collection is that it’s so versatile and can be used for baby pages, pet pages, camping/outdoor pages – the possibilities are endless!

I so loved the fox die cut that this was the first thing I wanted to experiment with.

I had seen it used in a couple of different ways in the July Kaisercraft  Workshop Magazine.

But I wanted my one to be more like a real fox rather than a pattern paper filled fox.  For this I used papers from the 6.5in x 6.5in paper pad to backfill his face.  I laid the die cut onto each piece of paper and traced around the relevant piece, with a pencil, before cutting out slightly larger than the pencil line and rubbed out the pencil lines before adhering to the back of the die cut.

Doesn’t she look cute?

I cut .25in from top and one side of a piece of Clouds paper and used the reverse side to adhere to a piece of Mountains paper which I had gutted a 1 inch frame from (it’s too pretty to use a whole sheet when most will be hidden behind the Mountains paper).

I mounted a 3in x 4in photo onto a 3.5in x 4.5in piece of blue spotty paper, from the 6.5 x 6.6 paper pad, using foam dots and added to my page with a cluster of elements top left of my photo.  The ‘Let there always be LOVE …’ is cut from Deer paper and the My Girl, Stay Clever, Antlers with flowers, Stay Wild, flowers and pink doily border are taken from the Collectables Pack. The blue scallop border and circle are from the 6.5 x 6.6 paper pad.

aI then added my fox to the top right of my page – her ears touch the top of the cloud paper and her right cheek touches the right, overlapping the top right of my photo.

Next I added the pink flower border from the sticker sheet, to the top of my page,  but cut it so it didn’t go behind the fox ears which left me a little piece to add to the bottom right of my page.

The final touch was to add Dusty Pink paper blooms and Sage mini blooms to my fox’s right ear to tie in with my title of Flowers In Her Hair.

So that is my first project with this fun range.  I can hardly wait to get onto the next one, which I have a planned in my head and have the perfect photos ready!  See you again soon
