This is the first of two layouts I have created using the Scrapahoix Kit for June. The kit contains patterned papers from Kaisercraft. This one is from the Chanteuse Collection and is called 'Eco'. The paper is double-sided and is a lovely pale green on the other side.
I used a sheet of 12" x 12" Vanilla Cream cardstock as the base, then added brown cardstock. I matted the green card from the kit on top. The green card was quite bright so I misted it with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Tattered Rose) and it gives the paper a lovely shimmer. I was left with a square base to place the photographs and patterned papers onto. I cut the photo's and patterned papers into equal size squares and adhered to the layout, leaving a small space in between each square. The flower is cut on my Big Shot using a flower layers die set, which was layered up using alternative colours of the patterned papers and spray misted with Glimmer Mist as before.
The technique this month is using a ZVA Butterfly Swirl Crystal. I cut this into 3 pieces and placed part of one piece on the layout below the flower. The other pieces are on the next layout that I will post tomorrow. Please leave a comment to say that you have stopped by. I will enter your name into the blog candy draw if you do (and if you qualify). Thank you.
