So for this week's Kit I had the vintagey 'French Kiss' papers from Glitz Design to play with and I decided to use some photos from our recent trip to Australia. When we were staying with my mum and dad we took a day trip out to Hill End, which is an old gold mining town and the papers were just perfect with the photos of the old buildings.
I used the brown Bazzill for the base of my layout, gutting the centre leaving a 1 3/4" frame. I then cut the centre from the 'Fleur' paper leaving just the frame, and mounted the centre piece onto the brown Bazzill.
Then I took a 12" length from the leftover 'Fleur' paper (the scroll/text side) and attached this towards the bottom of the layout. Next I cut a 3.5" x 11" strip of the 'Hats' paper (using the side that looks like sacking) and stuck this to the left side of the layout. I had some ribbon left over from a recent kit so attached this to the bottom of the layout and also used a small piece between two of the photos on the top half of the layout.
Then I mounted my photos onto the brown and cream Bazzill and attached these to the base. My photos measured: 5.25" x 3.75", 5.5" x 3.5", 3.25" x 4", 3.5" x 3.5" and 3.5" x 3". You can of course use less photos or vary the sizes to suit what you want to include.
To add journalling I cut some thin strips of the 'Fleur' paper and attached this to the bottom left of the layout.
Next add your title, I used some black alphas from my stash and the Glitz Design Burlap Teeny Alphas that came in the Kit. To finish I dotted around some of the mini pearls that were also in the Kit.
Thanks for looking!
