Sometimes you might have a coloured photo that you want to use on a layout, but the colours are just woeful with the selection of patterned papers you had picked out. An easy solution is to change the photo to black and white and add a piece of black cardstock as the background, which will give the photo a lovely, extra lift. Combining patterned paper from Basic Grey and Pink Paislee, Mel created this cute addition to her BOM album. A Hero Arts journaling stamp (quotes background) was used on a piece of kraft cardstock to hold the 'what bugs me' journaling and some gorgeous Basic Grey buttons were hand stitched to complete the layout.
Suz decided to use the brightest, happiest papers and images she could to juxtapose and counteract the potential negativity of the content of her page (truth is, she just wanted to use some of the gorgeous new Sassafras and this seemed like a vaguely plausible excuse).
Suz used Heidi Swapp journalling spots to list her woes (and this means she can add to the page as she thinks of things) and new Carolee’s creations alpha stickers in between handwriting. If you look closely you’ll also see she has unearthed her sewing machine – each rainbow ray has been stitched for added texture.
Cosmo Cricket Mr Campy collections was perfect for Carole's layout of her children, such fun papers to create with, and it worked really well with the theme "What Bugs You". Carole cut out many of the elements from the themed papers - the trees, cars and caravans and foam taped them up and also inked around the edges, to give them a more distressed look.
Most times Sarah loves her brother, but there are those occasions where brothers will be brothers lol !!
