Using a themed range with MME – Happy Camper
Hello there, Sheena here again.
This month I wanted to share with you 3 pages I’ve created using the My Minds Eye range – Happy Camper. Firstly let me say if there is any camping to be done here, I leave it to my children as I believe I’m getting too old to sleep on the ground!! Secondly if like me camping is not your thing please don’t let it put you off this wonderful range of My Minds Eye papers as they can many photo types and scrapping subjects.
Say Yes to New Adventures.
I received this photo of my Son as a text whilst he was at Reading Festival last summer. I have know idea where the head dress came from but it didn’t come home with him!!
The background for this page is on sheet of patterned paper, trimmed at 4inches & the top turned to show other side of the patterned paper before joining back up with tape.
The mix of embellishments used came from the Happy Camper chipboard elements, enamel shapes, flair badges, wood veneer & mixed bag of die cuts. I sorted out all that felt “wild” and layered them either side of the photo which was matted on papers from the 6×6 pad.
I die cut some feathers from watercolour paper & painted them to co ordinate.
I wanted to showcase that this range is good for girls too so here is my first of 2 more girl focused pages.
Featuring my daughter , a few years ago now.
For this page I was guided by the colours in the photo, namely blue & yellow.
After sorting through all the Happy Camper supplies I gathered all the blue & yellow pieces wanted to use. I applied some gesso coloured with Hiedi Swapp Colour Shine to form my base, then machine stitched circles over it before adding some splashes of mist too.
The photo was added over lots of layers before an Amy Tan acetate was added over the photo.
Lets Do This Today.
For this page I’ve used some iphone photos from a country walk with friends, as they are not the best quality I’ve kept them small.
I used kraft cardstock as my base with ink added using the packaging technique & through a stencil.
The patterned paper colours in this Happy Camper range suit the great outdoors so I matted my photos on various pieces on the left side before adding a range of embellishments. The chipboard word – adventure was originally curved but with a little gentle persuasion I got it to lie in a straight line down the side.
When sourcing new supplies from the shop, take a moment to check out the themed ranges I think you will be pleasantly surprised by their diversity.
Till next time.
