Hey there BoBunny Peeps! What a fun day for me to be sharing my first project with the fabulous new Life In Color Collection which is just so amazing. I had a blast mixing and matching the patterns with the embellies and some of my favorite pictures.
I used a combination of the 12 x 12 papers and the Misc Me Pocket Squares to create an arrangement that is similar but different for each of the pages for this 2 page layout.
Once I had the placement of the papers and squares I added pictures and some fussy cut images from the 12 x 12 paper like the balloon and ampersand. I've also incorporated quite a bit of Foil Transfers for extra detail and a pop of shine.
I created die cut embellishments that match perfectly by adding clear embossing powder to the die cut then heat setting it then adding a layer of Orange Pentart Glass Paint. Now it's sooo shiny. Last but not least some Chipboard and Layered Stickers and Double Dot Aqua Jewels.
Adding the Foil Transfer to the picture as well as the paper brings the detail to the center of the layout. This poor little tree from our front yard was frozen and sparkly and looked like it was coated in diamonds.
More of the polka dot paper for this set of pages but this time paired with the brick wall pattern.
I'm also using the same package of Foil Transfers but this time choosing flourish shapes and a large sentiment to layer over the picture. An orange doily die cut and some fussy cut images from the 12 x 12 paper and this layout is complete.
One more picture...this time from our local hiking trail brings the greens to the right side of this layout set. I've balanced it with additional doilies, a fussy cut lock and a couple of elements from the Noteworthy pack. The Foil Transfer on the polka dot pattern is a subtle but beautiful detail.
Okay things I love about this project....first the paper is so awesome...second Foil Transfers are my new best crafty friend......third Glass Paint sticks to embossing so I'm adding it to everything from now on.
Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
