I am over on the Scrap,Paper,Scissors blog today and I would like to share with you a layout I have made using the delightful Wildflower collection from Kaisercraft ...a range of beautiful papers, combining watercolour prints in a beautiful pastel colour palette.....with the added beauty of soft florals and delicate butterflies.
The designs are very soft and although pastel, also have little twists of citrus tones in patches which work really well. I matted all the elements with black cardstock to really make then *pop* and create dimension without too much added actual *depth*
I often prefer to scrap using black and white photo's and today was no exception....although these papers would carry a coloured photo well, I really felt that black and white would sit best on there and I chose a photo of our youngest daughter, taken on a family holiday in 2010. I still look at it and wonder just what she was thinking as she stared at the camera.
I used a sheet of Spring and trimmed a thin slice from 2 sides, I then popped this onto a sheet of Raven Bazill to create a frame all round.
I cut some flowers and different shaped panels from a sheet of In Bloom and then also matted these onto black cardstock, I also did the same for the quotes that were taken from a sheet of Gathered and I popped the photo onto a black mat.
I layered the various panels and then took the sheet of Wings, cutting out several butterflies. These were then adhered to the page to look like they were gently fluttering past and finished off with a delicate sprinklng of Stickles to make the wings glisten.
This really is a truly beautiful collection from Kaisercraft and will cover a range of subjects I think. After suffering from a total lack of mojo of late this actually came out rather nice and I am really quite pleased with it.
Thanks for looking and I would like to wish you all a super weekend.
