Hello scrappy friends! Back from my litle holiday and think I've finally got back into the routine; silly how you can go away for a week and get yourself our of sync ;) We had a great time in QLD - love the weather up there (wish we could move...ha!).
And now that I'm back I can finally get around to sharing some of the pages I've made using the CTK October kits! This one is using the Main and Sprinkles kits:
There are plenty of gorgeous goodies from Paige Evans/Pink Paislee and Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper collections in the Main kit this month - I love both and they go so well together.
I was going through one of my layout albums (as you do when you're stuck for ideas of what to do haha) and came across a page I'd created while doing one of Paige's classes at BPC (paper weaving) so I thought I'd give it another shot! It's such a fun way to add patterned paper to your page and although I only used the one paper here, you could mix and match different papers so easily using the same method!
I had no plan of where I'd put the weaving when I started but decided to offset it on the page (right side) so that the photo could sit at the bottom left. I broke out the watercolours for something different and stamped directly on top of that (once it had dried obviously, ha).
The Sprinkles kit this month has some fun sparkly pieces from Shimelle's Glitter Girl collection - I love those photo corner pieces so I used a couple to fix my photo in place. Then I just popped a few of the enamel shapes to balance out the colours a bit (I added the blues to balance out some of the blue shades in the paper and offset all the pink a little).
And as you know, no page of mine is ever really complete until I add stitching so I added a little border around the bottom and left side of the page using a dark pink cotton (instead of white, what a shocker!).
I think it's a fun little page thanks to all the gorgeous goodies from the Main/Sprinkles kits and I really enjoyed going back and using the paper weaving technique again!
I'll be back in a few days with another page - Anna and I have a super fun little challenge coming up on the CTK blog this weekend ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Take care, Em xo
