Inspiration from Tam

Well, happy April to you all!  The postie decided to hold on to my kit for a little while this month (I think he must be a closet scrapper) so I was a bit late to the party.  I've a chance to play now, though, and I have two layouts to share with you from April's bright and happy kit.

1. Crazy Kids

These pictures of my boys enjoying a summery treat on the deck were perfect for the vivid colours of this kit.  I used a simple colour-blocked design paired with a festive banner accent, and a cluster of some of the other gorgeous embellishments in the kit.  

To create the 'honeycomb' accents at the top and bottom, I laid the edge of the mask on the paper and masked off the rest of the layout with scrap paper.  I then misted lightly with a black spray ink.  If you look closely at the bottom one you might spot some overspray (oops) but I quite like how it looks.

2. The Littles

Since I had a tiny photo for this layout, I chose to do it in 8.5x11 format.  I cut some tickets from the Echo Park and MME papers to use around the layout, layering them with other elements for dimension.  I ended up with a bit of an arrow theme here, with handcut chevron accents, a handcut arrow and an arrow stamp on the background.  To finish off the layout, I added some handdrawn lines with a fine pen.  And don't forget the cherries!

This is such a fun kit to work with and I hope you get a chance to play before the month finishes.  Don't forget to share your creations with us on the Facebook page.
