What does Kraft Essentials, travel paper and Spar have in common? Well if you live in Gauteng then it all comes together in a double page layout about a horse. Yes strange but true, and it just goes to show how versatile the Lady Pattern Paper range is.
For this double page layout was inspired by the beautiful photos of Leo and Julianna. I drew inspiration from the purple and blue in the photos to use as my accent colour on the layout. For the rest it was a natural colour selection in the Kraft Essentials paper and then I found this gorgeous travel paper that worked perfectly in colour, pattern and texture. All of these elements together with a few embellishments I found at Spar and you have a gorgeous layout with interesting elements.
The kraft paper with blue stars on not only worked perfectly with my colour scheme but the tiny star pattern also compliments the theme and message of the layout. A few extra elements like the cut out sentiment strip sits perfectly on top of the different patterned papers adding another dimension.
The cute little paper clip elements were found at our local Spar. How funky are they? And perfect to add to any project for that extra pizzazz factor.
As part of my title, I punched a circle out of scrap paper, added a “L” rub-on and then dressed it up by adding a stamped paint circles and pencil scribbles all around it. This is such a simple but effective way to use up those older rub-ons in your stash.
To create flow I added paint splats in different colours to make all the patterned papers seem like one. The paint splats are the unifying element that tells your eye everything works together as a whole. A nifty little trick for unifying elements.
A white doily coloured with purple ink is used peeking out from under a photo – part of how I incorporate my accent colour.
Another little element from Spar is this post it note that I altered by adding some stamped wording, sewing and embellishments.
Stencilling, stamping and buttons finish off my layout perfectly – adding some dimension and colour but not distracting too much from the photos.
