Barista Time Again with Basic Grey

Hi there, Sheena here.
I have to admit I’m totally in denial that Christmas is only a few days away now but to make room  for hopefully more stash from Santa I went back to reuse the remains of a collection by Basic Grey  that I used back in August, it’s still available in the store & well worth a second look. I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard the phase “Kill a Kit” but it was certainly new to me. I decided that was exactly what I wanted to do with the Barista Collection I had left – use it up  as I loved its colour mix, instead of hoarding it.
Unforgettable Funny Faces.
This is Us looking very fetching at my Brothers wedding earlier this year!
As none of this papers were whole I layered & punched the edges before machine sewing them to cardstock.
The photos are matted on vellum, patterned paper & frames with sticker arrows added & alphas from the letter sheet.
The title is a combination of stickers & silhouette cut word, I’ve whitened the patterned paper a little with gesso so that I could add some journalling to the page.
You & Coffee – Enjoy
The people who know me, know I don’t drink coffee, or frequent coffee shops ( I don’t like the smell!)  but that doesn’t stop me documenting this fact!
Thank you Team Mate Julie for the photos to make this page possible x
I raided both sticker sheets for all the stickers I thought would be relevant & layered them up, by adding foam pads to the back then using talc to remove the rest of the stickiness, with some of the journalling cards before adding to my background paper which I’d added some mixed media of mist splats & texture paste.
I used all stickers for my title which in full reads…
You & Coffee – Enjoy but it’s tea for me .
I’m only left with a couple of stickers & some alphas to add back into my stash but I definitely feel that I killed this kit!
Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas xxx
