One of my strengths in teaching scrapbooking classes is to show you how to create a number of different looks with papers from one paper collection. Let's dig a little deeper.
Chantilly paper packet. At first glance, our eye is drawn to the pastels featured in the papers. Upon closer inspection, however, we find Buttercup, Champagne, Cotton Candy, Outdoor Denim, Pear, Ruby, Sunset, Twilight. (Did you know that all of the colors featured in a paper packet are listed on the "zip strip" of the patterned paper? Brilliant!) Outdoor Denim? Ruby? Twilight? Those colors are definitely other than pastels! In examining the papers, however, we find that, sure enough, there are bits of each of those colors woven into the designs!
With a couple of pieces of patterned paper, some Ruby cardstock, and a bit of Black Glitter Paper I set out to create a look that was much different from pastel. Here is what I designed:
It was simple to go from pastel to powerful just by using one of the deeper colors from the collection. Now let's see where the Cricut shapes came into play.
First, check out the designs that can be created all from this one key (right). In the top right hand corner, you can see the shapes that I used for this layout. Using the tuiip key, I cut 3 different colors for each tulip to give it a stronger presence on the page.Chantilly Assortment embellishments along with some sparkles and your page comes to life! (see detail on left). Once my photos and journaling are added, I will have a rich layout chock full of personality. Enjoy!
