Layout Mediterranean Holiday

It feels like so long since I have paid my blog any attention so I have decided to be a better blogger and post more often.

It has been very hectic around here with our holiday, a weekend away with my Mum and all my sisters then the backlog of things that get put aside when you have got more enjoyable things to do. But hopefully I have got some time now to get back to creating and sharing.

I got some photos from our holiday printed and I have made the front page for my album.

I have chosen to use the Kaisercraft Now Boarding collection for this album so will use that all the way through. I have also decided to restrict the album to one double page layout for each town/city we visited. I am going to have to incorporate a pocket or envelope on every page to get everything into this album so if you have any innovative ways of doing this I would be happy to hear about them.

This is the front page

I have used Kaisercraft Black cardstock as the base then Baggage Carousel for the next layer. I have distressed the edges, applied some texture paste, which I have coloured with acrylic paint through a chevron mask, and stamped randomly with a clear stamp and Stayz On ink. The strip of paper down the left hand side is from the Check In Collection - Delayed. I have just distressed and inked the edges on that. I have used some washi tape here and there. The tape was black and white but looked too stark so I applied some Cotton Candy Gelato over it and smudged it with my fingers. The tags and tag shadows were cut on my cricut as was the title. I have added eyelets and silk ribbon to them and the text on the tags was printed on self adhesive transparency. A few items from the collectables were used around the photo.

Till next time
Thanks for dropping by
