I am so glad to start a new term with Citrus Twist Kits and all these amazing ladies. Today i will be hosting the 3-to-Inspire challenge for this week using the beautiful Life Chapters kit. But before we go into the projects, let me share this week's prompts:
- Use a non-white background
- Create layers
- Add stamping to your title.
For my first project i used the Life Crafted - Life Chapters kit and the Butterfly Frame (free subscriber cut file) to create this page about my daughter's choice to cut her long-er hair.
The cut file was cut from white cardstock, so i chose Vanilla colored cardstock as the background for this page. Once the frame was machine stitched to the background, i started working on the layers.
The papers in the Life Stories kit and white vellum were used to cut different size butterflies using the same cut file. Before attaching these to the page, i added a bit of white paint where the butterflies would be attached, and then machine stitched the butterfly shapes to the background.
For the picture, i chose to add a bit of ink to the background, and then layered papers, ephemera and cut apart elements to frame the picture.
The title was set at the bottom corner of the page, and i chose to mix the kit's alphas with the stamp set to complete it. The following video will show you how it all came together.
I love the softness and color of this page, and since i had the negative pieces from the cut out, i chose to use them to create a layout in my Life Crafted album using the prompts as inspiration.
This time, I used one of the Life Chapters' papers to create the background for this page. I used a few of the negative paper pieces to create layers behind the picture.
I used the Life Chapters kit stamp set to create the title for this layout, and set it at the bottom of the picture.
I pulled an upcoming Life Crafted insert -expected in a few weeks- and used the top pocket to house my journal lines - i used the digital cards to add the lines using Photoshop-. In the bottom pocket, i added one of the cards with a small phrase sticker on it, and then added the layer butterfly to the outside of the pocket. The layered butterflies were also added to the picture so that there is a unified look in the page.
