Just layering it up

Challenge #3 over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge site was all about the layering.

Did they dream this up just for me? It felt that way ;-)

I went to town with one of my "Fall In Love" papers and fussy cut a whole load of tropical flowers and leaves to match my Philippine photos and then layered up papers and a huge (even by my standards!) cluster. The white cardstock (added in to the kit) was the perfect bright backdrop to all these colours. 

I know I shouldn't say things like this, but I LOVE this layout (I know, it sounds a bit boastful!). It really makes me happy and makes me realise that I have to get more of my Filipino stories onto my pages.

This is layout #4 from Fall In Love. (I promised the CKC girls that I'd get a better photo than this scan but, as much as I love this time of year, I'm struggling to catch the light to photograph layouts - so apologies for that.)




And this one is a fun, experimental one I made (#3) to see how "whimsical" I could go. 

The answer is not all that much before it starts looking a little off! 

But I am happy to use up this AC paper that was in my kit and also some of the chipboard die cuts too. I always struggle with these types of products. I added in a couple of the alphas for this multi-alpha, multi-coloured title. 


In the future, I think I'll be sticking to the style I know :-)

  8. Ahhh, you layout is beautiful. I envy you so with your layering embellishing. I'm really struggling with that concept. I'll have to sit down and study your layouts! Love the "city" layout. It's so fun!
