Hello, I’m back again to share another fabulous project I made using this months kit – Origins.
After creating a handful of layouts I always have plenty of scraps. I love this idea of creating a collage background using up your scraps of pattern papers. You can have so much fun with this, by creating lots of ready to go backgrounds. They are quick and easy and fun. I love simple patterns and then pops of color. You can let your inner freestyler out here.
This photo was taken from our Pearce family adventure in 2014. They are boab trees and they are my favorite tree.
“There are places I long to go”
Start by gathering all your scraps together and lay out on a base card stock.
Once you are happy with your design simply adhere in place. Use a few sticker numbers and randomly place along with some washi strips.
Next add some stitching. It adds great detail.
Now select a few stamps shapes and quotes and randomly stamp.
Create your own title using watercolors and a paint brush onto card stock. When dry hand cut and arrange on your layout.
Once you are happy start to adhere everything. Add a few flicks and pools of water color to help blend in the painted title.
I hope today was fun and you free inspired to go create a few collage backgrounds. Thanks for popping by!
Hello it’s Leeann here today and I have a super fun page to share with you all using the Origins Kit and also the Origins April printables. I wanted to have a wee bit of fun this time round and so I decide that I would use some of my punches that have been sitting around. I have an assortment of shapes and sizes. My idea come from the photo strip of the girls. I decide that it needed to be alot like there personality, a little bit of this and that… crazy/happy!
Now for the fun part. Punch out as many shapes as you can from the April Origins printables. You can hand cut a few shapes too.
Once you are happy with all your shapes, start by arranging your photos. Next start arranging your punches shapes. Once you are happy with your placement glue in place. Next grab the simple stories clear stickers and adhere in any white spaces. I added some doodle scribble using a lead pencil. Next I add the enamel hearts from Bella blvd and also a few brads to add that little bit of detail. To finish this page off I add flicks of black water color and curled the edges of the punched shapes.
Thank you for popping by today and I hope it has inspired you to grab those punches and have a play! Don’t forget those April Origin printables are there too!
