Shine Bright with extra dimension

Hi everyone, it’s Pam here with a layout featuring the fabulous ‘Shine Bright’ collection from Kaisercraft. This is a modern collection with a grey, yellow, black and white colour palette and that colour combination is a winner with me! It has a graphic, slightly retro feel to it I think.

So I used it to scrap this photo of my son in the bath in front of the fire. Look at those little red chubby cheeks!

I used quite a few of the stickers from the sticker sheet, and some of the Collectables die cuts to embellish the layout. Now I want to give you a tip on how to do add faux dimension to layers.

I  adhered the stickers and the diecuts direct to the layout, but gave them a 3D look by painting a shadow around the elements. To do this I scribbled with a black water colour pencil onto some scrap paper, then wet the scribble to activate the pigment. Then I just painted with the watered down paint around each of the elements I wanted to give a 3D look to.

That’s it-a really simple way of giving the appearance of dimension, without the bulk, and without the need for dimensional tape or pop dots!

I hope you love this collection as much as I do!

Bye for now,
