The Classic Calico line from Studio Calico is essentially a neutral collection that creates a not-quite-blank canvas for all sorts of creative fun! Danielle used the range here to focus on a vibrant outdoor portrait. Some gesso and ink across the background paper add an arty feel, and the chipboard clouds from Studio Calico embellish the top of the layout.
Danielle's second page also uses the Classic Calico range as a quirky background for an artistic page. Here she has placed the ampersand mask on the woodgrain patterned paper and applied impasto medium over the top. Danielle then swiped a mixture of inks, including Mister Hueys spray ink in custard, into the impasto before removing the mask. Silhouetting the photos featured allows more of the inky background to be seen, along with Studio Calico chipboard clouds and some other paper pieces as embellishments.
As soon as Georgia saw this vintage library themed range from Studio Calico she just had to have it. Books are a large part of life in Georgia's household so the hard part was deciding which book related story to tell. Georgia chose the simple lined and checked papers for the background and added some pages torn from an old copy of Jane Eyre to reinforce the book theme.
Georgia chose and sepia photo and embellishments in muted colours to give the layout an overall clean and classic look and then chose some bright orange butterflies to add a splash of colour which finished off the layout perfectly.
Veronica Jenn created these two funky projects using Studio Calico's Autumn Press range. First we have a gorgeous layout using polaroid style photos and a mixture of paper elements beneath them. Next we see one of Veronica's art journal pages about her favourite little ornament in her home!
For those of us who love graphic layouts and repitition, this one is a beauty! Tina Aszmus shares a tutorial over on the Studio Calico blog on creating this page. She has used stamps and designs from the new CHA release, the Take Note collection.
