Shades of silver and white make for the perfect combination of class and elegance. And so too, is the new Lady Pattern Paper Metallic Silver and white. I absolutely love the clean and crispness this paper offers.
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.
