Hi everyone, it’s Pam here.
This month I am playing with the Chase Rainbows collection from Kaisercraft. This collection is all about background papers. All the papers are relatively plain-by that I mean there are no images. Instead this collection is all about pattern and colour and is a little bit artsy as well. So that means it’s a very flexible collection which can be used to scrap just about any subject.
So here’s my first layout this month:For this layout I started with a rectangle of the Hue paper, which I machine stitched on, together with a piece of mesh bag that my lemons came in. This added some texture without obscuring the gorgeous water-colour effect paper.
While I had the sewing machine out I sewed on some scraps of plaster’s tape and some orange hessian ribbon which I had in my stash.
Then it was just a matter of arranging some of the Collectables around my photo and adhering them on. You must know by now how much I love the packets of collectables. They make putting a layout together so easy-just layer them on under or overlapping your photo. Lift them up with some foam tape to add some dimension.
After I layered the collectables I decided it needed something more, so I dampened my card stock with water, and painted on some Kaisercraft mists in yellow and pink and allowed the colours to run together. I also added some splatters and some dots of Stickles.Some close ups of those lovely collectables.I do hope you love using collectables as much as I do.
