Happy Thursday! It has been a LONG time since I've shared a project on the blog. So I'm excited to be back! Today I have a project to share with you using the October Main Kit and Travelers Notebook Kit. Yes, I like to combine my kits to get the most use out of them. Plus, they usually have a similar feel and look so it's easy to use them together.
I was on the Clique Kits Facebook page yesterday doing a LIVE video. If you checked it out, you know I asked if I should create a 12x12 layout or travelers notebook spread. Well most of you said 12 x 12 layout. So that is what I created.
I love the grid paper ("Fall in Line") and decided to use this as my background. And I ADORE the "Seek Rainbows" paper from Shimelle Glitter Girl. While I started yesterday's live video, I found this picture laying on my desk that I printed a few months ago of me using a Snapchat filter. I knew this kit and collection would be PERFECT to scrap this photo.
As shown above, I added swipes of color to my background ("Fall in Line") using Tim Holtz distress inks in: Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber, Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough, Seedless Preserves, and Dusty Concord. These colors matched the "Seek Rainbows" paper seen in the left photo.
As you see above, I fussy cut pieces from the "Seeking Rainbows" paper. I followed the rainbow look on the paper on my page with the swipes of color, fussy cut pieces, ephemera, stickers, and other kit elements (puffy hearts, add on flair, etc).
Because I was inspired by the "Seeking Rainbows" paper I was easily able to match up elements in each "row" of color. Pinks, yellow, green, blue, purple. Layering pieces on top of each other and matching textures. I also used my Wink of Stella glitter pen to add more shine (you can see it on the glasses frames above and the girls bow).
Both the Travelers Notebook and Main kit have a lot of awesome elements that work together. I used the 6x6 paper pad from the TN kit to add some paper to my photo and the background, I used the ephemera and thickers to add to my color blocks, and I even used sequins from the August 2017 Kit!
I am excited how my final layout turned out. How do you see yourself using the "Seeking Rainbows" paper? Will you fussy cut it or us it as a background? Let me know in the comments section below.
There are still subscriptions open starting with our October 2017 kits (both Main Kit & TN Kits). A great way to save each month on the kits. We do have some available a la carte in the shop, as well as some awesome coordinating products!!
Thanks for joining me today! Have a great Thursday!
