Another LO


Here is another LO using my kit.. I added a sheet of plum cardstock and some embellishments but other than that I used the turquoise PP as a mat for the large photo and some more for the two layered mat for the journalling block on the bottom right. I used some scrap blue and red CS from the kit for the small banner and cut the hearts from a piece of scrap left from the paper that I added for my last LO.  The turquoise PP actually has holly leaves on it and come from a Christmas kit but you can't see that by using it as a mat. 

I used Cosmo Cricket small words for the journalling and I dyed two white paper roses to add along with the turquoise flower which I centred with a Candi Dot.
For ages I have had some Papermania grey letters with pale blue dots on it which didn't really work with this LO, so I inked them with a Dew Drop inkpad and then used embossing powder on them to alter the colour to dark aqua. 
This fits with a challenge over on UKS that provided a sketch too. Thanks for looking.

  1. I love reading about all the little counterfeiting you've been doing for this page - changing colour, adding embossing powder, covering up holly ... brilliant use of stash for a super page. Great stuff!

  3. Love the lettering you used. Great idea to use an ink pad on it because they were the wrong colour for your layout.
