Bold, bright and funky!

Hi Magpies it’s Julie back with you today sharing some bold, bright layouts to inspire you during the coming month. Upon looking through the store I happened upon the Becky Higgins Project Life ranges. Now as I don’t do project life I’ve always glossed over this section before but boy have I been missing out!! It’s full of great products certainly not just aimed at project lifers. I choose to use the forever young collection for my first layout ‘Totally Awesome’. This collection doesn’t have any 12×12 papers so for my background paper I used a neutral paper from the simple stories Family basic kit & added loads of mixed media to it,inks, texture paste, splatters, all in colours that matched the papers. I choose 2 triangles to put in 2 opposite corners, from the 6×6 paper pad, & using punches & die cutting dies, cut out a variety of shapes, arrows, circles & words to add around the page. I made a paper layer for my photo to sit on & drew with a pen around each layer to give them some definition. I added the whole page to a piece of black cardstock & sewed all around the edge. I finished the page with some bits from the chipboard stickers pack.
My second layout ‘Llama Love’ is using Bella Blvd Illustrated Faith collection. I loved this collection when I first saw it, full of bright, funky designs & wanted to show that I could be used for a layout that was not faith related. My background paper is the B-side of the admirable paper, which already had a few splatters printed on but I added a few more , I then backed that onto the praiseworthy paper, having first gutted the centre. I added a vertical strip of Clara- no 9 watercolor splotch/flower doodle paper from studio calico on the left hand side & some more strips from the illustrated faith range on top of that. I sewed a large circle in the middle of the page & added my photo clusters in that.
My title is from the Treasures & text sticker sheet & I fussy cut the word love from the Arts Prints paper. I added lots of stickers to finish this page from the Little bits stickers, Love it stickers, Point it arrow stickers & I also added some pieces from the Elle’s studio Thankful- Bits & pieces pack, & to finally finish it I added some enamel heart stickers which I love, love, love & am now on my second pack!!!
My final layout ‘ monkey business’ is using stash from a few different collections. My background is Studio Calico Darcy no8 Handwritten Alphabet/Scribble which again I have added some mixed media to. I then cut out a variety of sizes of circles from the Studio Calico Clara no 9 paper & the Amy Tangerine Finders Keepers 6×6 paper pad & arranged these across the middle of the page. I made a mat for my photo using Fancy Pants Designs Summer Sun- Decorative tags & added that to the middle of my layout. I added a few of the Amy Tangerine Finders Keepers rub ons & backed my page with the wild goose chase paper from Amy Tangerine Finders Keeper collection.
I hope you have enjoyed my layouts this month & I’ll be back next month with some more xoxo
