Back again to share a few more layouts from the November kits!
And completely unrelated...4th post this week!! It's got to be some kind of record (for me)! Pretty sure I won't be able to keep this up, but had lots to show this month which is awesome!
Next up I wanted to challenge myself to use more than 2 photo's on a layout. Almost all of mine are 1 photo only with the occasional 2 photo layout, 3...maybe once or twice but 4?! Never! So I did just that.
Was going for a banner kinda effect and used stitching to act as my "line" on each page. Little bit from the Main, Pocket Life and Paper Play #2 on this one!
It was actually alot of fun! Challenging because of my smaller page size, but I did it and I don't think it looks too shabby so I'm calling it a win! ;)
And last one I can show you for now is this one! I have to admit, I kinda really like this one...
I used watercolour paints to colour it in! What's that?! You're in shock?! I know, kinda surprised me too. The background paper is from Paper Play #2, it's the b-side of "Paper 9" by Seven Paper (bottom right shown below).
I didn't bother trying to keep within the lines, I was going for that "messy on purpose" kinda look, something I totally can't do, but I think this worked out OK!
I really enjoyed making this page and can totally see me mixing up some of those black/white patterned papers in future doing this same thing! I'm totally behind the eight-ball with using watercolours I know, it's been going on for ages...slow learner here people ;)
And that's it for today! Still a few more to go but they'll be up on the CTK blog a bit later this month ;)
Oh and HAPPY FRIDAY!! I'm having a quiet one at home (although that's not exactly something new). Planning to start on Lesson 3 of Paige's Pages and *cross fingers* try Skype for a scrappy-date with my favourite red-head girlyfriend.
Hope your Friday is a great one and your weekend even better! Thanks so much for stopping by! Em xo
