Fabulously Fair

Hello, this is Ifa. Happy Spring to you all. Are you on half term ? Same here. My target this week is to get the little one revising for the end of year exam. If I succeed 50% of the time this week, I think I will be a very happy mummy.

I had better get on to my post. You might be wondering what my post will be about, with a title like that ?  I am usually more inclined towards bright layouts.  This month I wanted to try some Allison Kreft Design’s transparency.  Have you seen it ?  This and her other transparencies are gorgeous white print, extremely, fabulously fair.  How do I use it ?

I decided to make an extremely white layout. I started by cutting out hearts using an old die. I used an assortment of materials.  As long as it is white, I used it.  These included vellum, doillies, some old Dear Lizzy ruffled paper, just the white part of course and transparency. Once I have a small assortment, I began arranging them on white background cardstock.  I then faced the problem of how to attach them, especially the transparency.  I didn’t want full adhesion as I liked the texture of some of them popping up.

I decided to sew them, on the sewing machine.  I went slow and added hearts, one row at a time.  Naturally, I used white cotton. This is what I ended up with.

I also ordered a Maya Road stamp set.  How sweet are the sentiments! I am always drawn to stamps, I think I must have a bit of a habit. 
The same cannot be said of rub-on. I have a love-hate relationship with rub-on. This month I decided that I am feeling the love and ordered a Christy Tomlinson Doddle Flower.
I used these two products to add some colours to my layout. I added the doodle rub on to some glittered clear buttons.  You might have seen how I added glitter to the buttons in my post last month.  This month, I turned a glittered button over and added some rub on to the other side. You can see them here on my layout.

This is the finished layout.
I also made a second layout, this time die cutting some alphabets from the transparency. Here’s a close up of that title area as I built the layout up.
I am very pleased with myself that I managed to include eight photos from our Segway City Tour of Paris on the layout.
