Same Paper Different Look
Rachel was given the lovely 3 Bugs in a Rug Spread Your Wings collection to play with, when I first looked at this paper range I thought lovely bright summery papers. Rachel has produced two layouts using the same paper range but that look so totally different.
My first page is perhaps more traditional, using the brighter summery sides of the papers. I tore the main sheet of paper on two sides and tried to bury the photo in the page by creating a frame and covering the edges with lots of embellisments, a lot of which I have created by handcutting them out of the paper. Its not always practical you use the same thicker pack on one layout so I try to vary them with other alphabets.
I had been thinking about creating this next page for some time and when I saw the reverse of the 3 Bugs papers I knew they would be perfect. Over the past few months I have started to read the Twilight Books and I am hooked, I thought I would do this page to remind me in the future just how ‘into them’ I was. As with the previous page I started with a bazzill base, and used the fabulous dotty black paper as a background. Again I used a mixed of thickers and different alphas for the title which is even more effective as the title is much longer. To create the journalling block I used the back of a piece of card that some stickers came on and added little bits of my own stash. This is a completely different look but with the same papers and basically the same design.
