Beechmont

Whoa, what's this? Another layout just two days after the last one! I'm a little bit surprised myself but it's a public holiday here today and we've had family staying with us which has given me a bit of extra time to craft while they look after Harrison. The craft room is still not sorted or organised but I'm feeling much more relaxed for having had a chance to get messy. :)


I like the lopsided background on this one, with the layers of paper only down the left side. I've actually used the same Kaisercraft Christmas papers as in my 'First Cuddle' layout from earlier in this month, but the end effect is such a different type of layout.


I continued the background techniques onto some scrap craft paper and created two tags to add some extra layers. The bottom tag is taped down but the top one has my journaling hidden on the reverse. 


I've used some art journal techniques again on this layout to build up some depth in the background, including three different stamps and some hand-drawn plus signs. I LOVE this crosses washi tape, it is just so versatile. I also couldn't go past adding some Scrapmatts Word Art pieces.


My layouts just don't seem finished unless I've added some sequins these days. :) Sequins and the very cool wood veneer shapes are from D-lish Scraps


This layout was created for the April Kraft+ challenge. Something old: Kaisercraft patterned papers and the photos, which are from 2013. Something new: two Kaisercraft stamps, I've had them for a while but this was the first time I've used either of them. Something borrowed: I've scraplifted this layout by Georgia Heald. Something blue: the church, the ink splatters, the stenciling, the sequins.
