Grateful for – My Year, My Story

Hi Everyone,

Linda here with another page using My Year, My Story Collection from Kaisercraft.

IMG_9890 smallI had lots of fun with this page and used papers mainly from the Paper Pad which is 6×8″ in this release. It’s got lots of thermographic papers in which are white and perfect for inking.

IMG_9893 smallI chose the sentiment above and added rough circles using Distress Inks in Evergreen Bough, Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade – the Mini Ink Blending tool is perfect for this.

Once happy, I added to the centre of a sheet of Kaisercard in Coconut – my favourite as its so versatile. My photographs were created using an app on my phone called Snap Collage which I then trimmed into two pieces which were added top right and bottom left.

IMG_9892 smallNext a variety of papers from the Paper Pad, chosen to coordinate, and cut into squares measuring 6.5cm, the same as the larger photograph. These were then inked and placed around the central square randomly and overlapping. The journalling panel was on one of the 6×8″ papers along with the camera.

IMG_9895 smallOnce in place I added various stickers from The Sticker Sheet and The Months Sticker Sheet, plus Black & White Captured Moments Stickers.

IMG_9894 smallI created the date with the clear stamps from the set. Finally a Black Micron Pen was used to faux stitch all the edges and around the stickers for definition. Oh My! I’ve just realised there isn’t any sparkle on this page – I must be slipping!

I hope January has been good to you, I can’t believe it’s almost gone already! Do check back for more lovely projects, til then,

Take care,

~ Linda~
