You COLOUR my world - Lady Pattern paper

Lady Pattern Paper's latest release are paper packs that combine a mix of patterned papers in the same colour. When I decided to use the Silver, Black and White paper pack I already had the photos in mind. My daughter in law, Nadia and my grandson Lukas took part in the Colour Run in October 2017 and I have seen some very colourful photos of them.   Here is the completed page:

Supply list:  Patterned paper:  Lady Pattern Silver, black and white paper pack; Cardstock: American Craft; Letter stickers;  American Craft Doll, Dear Lizzy; Chipboard leaves:  Celebr8; Heart puffy stickers: Freckled Fawn; Embroidery Floss: DMC; Ink:  Distress Oxide Ink (picked raspberry, salty ocean, fossilized amber); Other mediums: Nuvo Crystal Drops (Ebony Black); Embossing Powder: WOW (silver); Stamps: Prima (splats), Teresa Collins (flower, hearts)

I first matted my photos on black cardstock and then chose 5 of the papers to layer behind the photo. I cut the papers to size and layered them stapling them together so that I could see where it is going to sit on my white cardstock.

I then marked the space and started to add colour to my background. I used some Prima stamps that look like splats and Distress Oxide Inks. I also added water to the ink and used a paintbrush to make smaller splatter.

When the inks were dry I added my patterned paper layers and the photo. I then stamped the two large black flowers and fussy cut it from the card stock I stamped on.

I added some stitching to my background for added texture. I then heat embossed some chipboard leaves with silver and added the two flowers and the leaves diagonally across from each other.

Silver Black and White Layout Script
Finally, I added my title and little silver puffy hearts. I found it needed a bit more black for contrast and stamped tiny black hearts randomly around the page. I finished it off with black Nuvo Crystal Drops.

This layout is an example of using the papers in your Silver, Black and White paper pack to create something beautiful and memorable by bringing colour in with mixed media and embellishing.

This is the paper pack that I used.  You can find it at your local scrapbook store.
