Hello CTK friends!
Anna and Nathalie with you today to shine the spotlight on Patterned Paper. Let's be honest, we all have a stash of paper we are keeping to document that special memory, and this month's Skyland Scrapbook, PL kit, Patterned Paper Play and Outside Stories kit are filled with beautiful papers. But before you put them away in your stash, let us show you how you can combine and use them in your projects. First up is Nathalie.
Hi there!, Nathalie here to bring you a bit of inspiration using a few of the patterned papers from this month's Skyland kits. This month, the papers are gorgeous, filled with fun designs, and perfect to document all your memories.
For my layout, i wanted to create a very coastal mood for the page, as it documents a picture of my daughter after spending a day basking in the sun on the beach. For this i picked papers from the Skyland Scrapbook Kit, PL kit, Patterned Paper Play kit and also used a digital card to create a patterned paper for this page.
What better way to use paper and mix patterns than to crate paper flowers. I used a combination of cut files (Silhouette Store) and some dies to create the centers and petals of the flowers. I used a bone folder to add some movement to the petals. Some of the flowers were layered together, so that they add dimension to the page.
Along the way, i added a few die cut leaves (Maya Road die) cut from white cardstock (color a few with green paint, too), so that they will form clusters around the picture and the entire page. A few of the Scrapbook kit embellishments and elements from the cut apart sheet also were added along the clusters to embellish the page. Finally a few sentiments using the Conversation Starter Stamp complete this page.
