A little of what you don't fancy…
Louise here with a few LOs to share using papers I don’t like! Well, technically that’s not true, but they are papers I wouldn’t usually think to look at. We all have our favourite paper manufacturers and manufacturers we avoid like the plague because we absolutely do not like their products. Fancy Pants were on my ‘wouldn’t touch with a barge pole’ list, until I saw the new ranges in real life, and was immediately impressed with the colours and designs. This made me go and take a closer look at all the manufacturers. Some of the Authentique Renew papers jumped out at me too, so I ordered a mix of these and Fancy Pants Park Bench and Trend Setter to work with this month.
The first LO I have to share is of Things 2 and 3 dressed as Where’s Wally for World Book Day. I wanted the LO to be fun so created a random inky background. Here’s a step by step.
On Authentique Renew Distressed White I used teal, yellow, red and blue mists. Spraying some, and splattering others.
My third LO has a rare photo of all 5 of us together. I created a collage of four photo taken from a day out on an iPhone app selecting a black border.
I used a calendar die cut and a transparent arrow die cut from this Basic Grey pack, and a couple of stamps from this Heidi Swapp set.
My final LO is of photos of Harry taken a few years ago. There is no title on the LO because sometimes a title just isn’t necessary. I created this LO to record the memory of Harry being a monkey and trying to hide from the camera.
A couple more elements were used from this Basic Grey pack, as well as another Fancy Pants tag and sticker.
So there you have it, 4 LOs that I really like, created out of papers that I could so easily have overlooked. What paper manufacturers do you avoid? Why not go and have a look at them right now… you may just be surprised. If you create anything using the Fancy Pants or Authentique ranges we’d love to see your work, just leave a link to your blog/gallery in the comments box.
