Hello sweet friends. It’s Kylie back with you on the blog today! For todays blog post it’s all about scrap-lifting one of our fellow teamies and I have been assigned the lovely Michelle! I have had a tough time choosing a layout of Michelle’s to scrap-lift as ALL of her work is simply beautiful. You can see for yourself HERE! Such beautiful inspiration am I right??
After much deliberation, I decided to scrap-lift the following, beautiful page from Michelle. I loved the clever placement of all those paper strips and the opportunity to use lots of different paper prints. I had a very small amount of my ‘BOHEMIAN DREAM’ collection left and felt this design would be perfect for using up those last few bits and pieces.
Here is Michelle’s design, followed by my take on her design…
As you can see I have rotated my layout so the strips sit vertically on the background. Each strip of paper measures between 1cm up to 3cm wide and the lengths were cut randomly as I was placing them. For balance I also layered some strips over the top of others to create a layered, dimensional effect similar to Michelle’s page.
The frame from the die cut pack was perfect for adhering over the top of my photo. Once in place I cut off the excess of the photo for a snug looking fit. I then backed it with some white tissue paper from my craft stash, just to soften the look of the edges once adhered to the background. Next, I layered more die cuts to surround the frame for balance.
To complete my page I added a large title below my photo. The gold alpha stickers were from my craft stash but gave a nice pop of colour against the background and fitted well with the chipboard sticker ‘Happy’ title.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope you have enjoyed seeing my latest project.
