Happy – Fly Free

HI everyone,

Linda here with another layout using the Fly Free paper pack.  These are so useful as I always want to use both sides of the same paper!
IMG_0876 smallI began with a 20.5cm strip from the bottom of Partner and 2 x 7cm strips of Gal Pal, these were attached top and bottom to create the 12″ square page – I always use my mat as a size guide but you can mount it onto 12×12″ card if preferred.

IMG_0881 smalEither side of the panel I added sentences from the Sticker Sheet which also comes in the paper pack making it great value for money.  All edges have been inked with Distress Ink. I then added my photo 10×11.cm with a matt of Gal Pal to the left hand side.

To create the journalling, I drew some lines in lightly with a pencil and ruler for a guide then chose a few colours from the Kaisercolour pen set – this is a beautiful rainbow of both gel and glitter pens that write & colour beautifully – and wrote either side of my photo.  Once fully dried – I left mine for a while to ensure it didn’t smudge – I erased the pencil marks.

IMG_0841 smallAnother advantage of the paper pack is being able to decoupage elements, so a lot of fussy cutting took place cutting out lots of the flowers and butterflies which I glittered using the Kaisercolour glitter pens – you can see above and below how well these work to add accents.

IMG_0878 smallI cut out more elements from the paper sheet and added them to the top of the page too and added a small sentiment from the Collectables pack.

IMG_0880 smallTo finish the page, I cut out the word “happy” from Bestie which I trimmed and embellished with a glitter pen from the Kaisercolour pen set and stuck across the bottom of the photograph.

Thank-you for taking the time to read this, please check  back later in the week for more creations from our lovely team.

Until then, take care,
