Time to add some photos! I took the brown and white foil sheet from the PAPER PAD – JOURNEY COLLECTION and cut it down to 13.5 cm x 13.5 cm. I attached this to the centre of my layout. I took the left overs from this sheet and framed my two 5.2 cm x 5.2 cm photos. I had already framed these photo with KAISERCARD CINNAMON WEAVE CARDSTOCK which was cut at 5.6 cm x 5.6 cm. I attached these two small photos to the opposite corners.
I cut ½ in from the top and one side of the Marbled paper. I then used the Damask Mini Stencil and Ranger Transparent Gloss Texture Paste in four areas of the paper. Once this was dried I gave it a light coat of Gesso and wiped over the areas with the texture paste with a baby wipe to reveal the colour of the paper below. As I thought this worked in the same way as transparent embossing powder but with less faff!
Once the Gesso had dried I stamped with the Paint Strokes Stamp and Orchid Ink Pad across the texture paste areas but in the opposite direction. I also ‘dabbed’ the ink pad through the stencil in areas.
I cut a 5¾ x 7¾ rectangle from a piece of Lilac Weave Cardstock and adhered the Marbled paper to the centre of the remaining piece.
Cut branding strips from two of your papers and the Devine paper to add around the outside of your page.
To complete my page I added two pieces of paper from the Misty Mountain Paper Pad , stuck together and trimmed to 6½ x 5¼, to the piece of Lilac card from above and then my photo was added to this. I also cut some of the phrases from the Misty Mountain Paper Pad to add, with some phrases and the word ‘beautiful from the Collectables pack, at the top right and bottom left of my page.
Thanks for joining us again today to see what we’ve all been creating using the fabulous collections released last month. To give you some ongoing inspiration on how to use your fab new collections, the design team have been working hard on creating some extra special projects to inspire you. I do hope you will glean some ideas from them!
I then took pieces of the Shiver paper and some collectables to create long pennants behind the photo that I had mounted on Kraft Cardstock and a piece of the Forest Paper too. I mounted this on foam mounting tape and then added two die cut baubles from the collectables pack on foam mounting tape too. On the first one I added a pearl string from my stash and in the second one I coloured in my dotted line to create a string using the Kaisergel Pens.
Finally I tucked a few collectables around the photo cluster and on the layout and I used Joy as the title too. The photo is of my grand-daughter opening her advent calender for the first time..and I think her face has ‘Joy’ written all over it don’t you? I also used the saying from the Sticker Sheet.
Thanks for stopping by..don’t forget to let us know you’ve visited. Have fun!
