For this release layout I wanted to capture the fresh and free feeling of the photos I used, and what better way than to keep the design also clean and uncomplicated by using only the silver range of papers. I think it turned out so beautifully and captures the exact story I wanted to tell.
I used all the papers to create a block effect together with the photos I used. The paper strips with their straight lines were broken up by the use of the embossed stars, punched circles and embellishments scattered across the layout.
I used my barcode strip to punch 5mm circles from the design. The left over piece was adhered to the bottom of my layout as a fun accent. The small punched circles were scattered across the design with brads, diamante and irresistible enamel dots.
I embossed a selection of stars onto the silver patterned papers, cut them out and scattered them across the page with some of them raised using foam tape for a bit of dimension.
The silver diagonal paper was adhered to a piece of chipboard and then die-cut into a camera shape. I removed the inside smaller circle and used it on the opposite side as a decorative element. The inside of the camera frame was covered in some glitter and finished off with a layer of dimensional glaze. The camera itself was inked using Silver Delicata ink to add a bit of attitude.
To add some more texture to my layout I also added my signature sewing details. This time around I used a silver/blue shade of thread that picks up on the colour of the photos but also seamlessly blends into the silver patterned paper. I love how the sewing just adds that finishing touch. For years I have added machine and hand sewing to my layouts and it makes perfect sense to add patterns and textures to your crafting projects.
I absolutely love this range of Metallic Silver and white papers and can see myself using it for loads of projects and themes like Christmas, graduation, weddings and any other special memory keeping occasion.
