7 gypsies never fail to design timeless and classic paper ranges that lend themselves to showcasing both vintage and modern photos. Louise has created 2 layouts one using an older photo of her grandfather and a 2nd featuring a photo of her young friend Jessica. The Lille range of papers has so much wonderful ephemera incorporated into the background patterns that it is just perfect for creating coordinating embellishments to decorate your layout.
A you can see from this layout these wonderful papers also feature wonderful kitsch hand doodled elements. On this particular layout Louise has incorporated such an element into her title.
The second thing Caz thought of when she saw the gorgeous Mykonos range from 7gypsies was Summer (the first thing she though of was little white houses on a hill in Greece but alas she hasn't managed to get there yet). The Delos paper has brightly coloured tiles printed all over it and Caz designed her page around these. She mounted some of the tiles and her photos on chipboard for added texture.
The journaling written on the back of the page details the day her kids decided Chase needed a swim. Apparently doggy paddling does not come as second nature to dogs. The first time they tried he sank like a stone much to their horror. After being shown what to do he was much better at it, but not very keen on the whole swimming thing.
A big thank you to the wonderful talent Natalie May who has created a wonderful canvas featuring also the 7 gypsies Lillie range of papers. Natalie has used and coordinated embossing and inking techniques to amazing effect on the patterned paper squares. Just wonderful Natalie, thank you very much for sharing your canvas.
We thank the amazing talent of Anna Dabrowska for allowing us to showcase her wonderful layouts featuring the 7 Gypsies Lillie range of papers. With all of her layouts Anna has utilised the pattern of the papers to full advantage; in both her design and embellishing. Thank you so very much Anna.
