Wild about You - Lady Pattern Paper

Hi there,  I am sharing a layout made with Lady Pattern Paper today.  Bernike Coetzee's gorgeous papers are really versatile and can be used as essential papers that will go with any paper range you choose to use...and of course it is a proudly South African manufacturer. I wanted to showcase the Kraft Essentials Lucy Lace Opaque white paper that I used as the background for this page.  I decided that it would make the perfect backdrop for some extraordinary photos taken way back in 2014.  Here is my page:

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Lady Pattern Basic Essentials; Cardstock:  Lady Pattern Paper (Kraft Essentials);  Letter Stickers:  American Craft (Paperback); Wood Veneer: JA Floral, Studio Calico; Chipboard:  Dusty Attic, Celebr8; Flowers: Petaloo; Leaves: Prima; Beads:  Celebr8; Label: twine + ink;  Flair:  Feed your craft; Enamel dots:  Nuvo Crystal Drops (Dandelion Yellow, Apple Green), Giraffe Die Cut:  Maggie Holmes (Carousel); Ink:  Distress Ink (Vintage photo, Walnut Stain),  Other mediums:  Finnabair Copper Glitter Glass, Wow rose gold embossing powder,Lindy's oakleaf olive embossing powder;  Border Punch: Xcut; Other:  12 x 12 corrugated cardboard.

Some close ups:
 I decided to back the Lucy Lace Kraft paper onto a 12 x 12 piece of corrugated board.  I then went ahead and tore pieces of the kraft paper from the edges and inked the exposed corrugated cardboard.  I heat embossed the Dusky Attic branches and placed it behind the burlap flowers.

 The giraffe die cut was the perfect touch to this page...in fact I don't know if I would have used it if I didn't have these photos ;)  I raided some of my Celebr8 embellishment packs and sorted the yellow, green and black beads...I then attached them around the bottom of the photos with glossy accents.  While it was still wet I sprinkled the copper glass glitter over it.

 I love the exposed pieces of corrugated cardboard...it gives it a real African wild feel.

 I added some wood veneer hearts and made enamel dots with Nuvo Crystal drops as final touches.

 The page would have no meaning if the story isn't told.  So I added my journaling to the top of the page.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.  You can find Lady Pattern Paper at your local scrapbook store. ♥♥
