Lace papers are one of those new products with plenty of versatility, as Nic Howard shows with this Rouge De Garance layout. Rouge De Garance creates a range of fine lace papers with coordinating patterned papers and Nic has used both here. She has used the patterned paper as a border with a sheet of Aussie Scrap Source white cardstock to build the base of the layout.
Nic cut a small portion of the lace paper, with plenty left over, to use as a border embellishment under the photo. Adding some circles and handmade flowers from the deep colours of the Rouge De Garance Village de'herbe range and the page was nearly complete.
Final details include smaller pieces cut from more of the RDG Village de'herbe papers, BasicGrey alphas and Opalines, and journaling to finish. Nic mentioned that each sheet of RDG paper had plenty of possibilities to cut out, colours are rich and varying, it's easy to get a range of colours from your layout from one sheet!
Suz loved the richness of colours in the Rouge de Garance Aile ou Fleur range – a saturation of blues, browns and the most stunning limes make these papers pure eye candy. The circle theme clearly worked with her photos and she chose a simple colour blocking layout to best showcase them.
The Urbaine range of papers from Rouge de Garance has so much going on in it that you don't need to add much more to create eye-catching pages. Caz has teamed the papers up with some chipboard alphas and shapes to create these bright funky pages. The first showing her sons current career choices at 8 years of age, and the second... well showing that her eldest doesn't do mornings very well, particularly camping mornings which involved a very late night the night before.
These versatile papers are all double sided meaning that even though there are only 6 papers in the range, Caz has so far managed to create 4 completely different looking layouts with plenty of paper left over for at least 4 more.
