Kite Flying with Pink Paislee28 April 2012 | By admin in Hearts, Page Layouts, Pennants
Hello everybody! Today I wanted to share with you a page I created with Basically Bare and Pink Paislee. Working with the Prairie Hill collection was so much fun! They had a kite flying theme to their products and I just went with it J. I made some kite embellishments for my page and yes, I might have gone a little off the deep end with them, but seriously, piling on the layers was so much fun! Let me show you…
For the larger kite I started with polka dot paper (love the blue and grey!) and layered with the felt scalloped circle from the Happy Little Trees set. I colored the edge yellow with the fabric markers from Kuretake. To that I added a cardboard heart. I was going for a shabby chic, whimsical look so I exposed the corrugation and dabbed with gesso. Lastly I piled on some flowers, buttons, thread and tucked in a cute banner from the Small Pennants set.
For the second kite I layered with the same shapes but in different materials…canvas and chipboard (how nice is that to have all those options!). I topped this kite off with that very cute dimensional accolade sticker from Pink Paislee.
The Prairie Hill collection came with so many great patterns and elements. I hand cut some different shapes using the different patterened papers to frame my photo and used my Zig Writer pen to doodle their borders. I used the “Up up and away” stamp to add movement behind the kites. Lastly I added a subtitle to my layout with their adorable alphas.
Well that’s my page for today! Hope you enjoyed it!
