Hello! I'm Sarah, one of the Twilight Crafts Design Team. I wanted to share with you this super quick idea for a Scrapbook layout and tell you how easy it was to create. You don't have to have lots of supplies.
I created my page using the Great Escape Kit from the Twilight Crafts shop.
JWCF 445 The Great Escape
1 sheet of white 12x12 Scrapbook paper
1 sheet of Patterned Scrapbook paper (Paige Evans Bungalow Lane)
I also added some paper scraps in co-ordinating colours to mount my photo,
some cute wooden embellishments that I found in my stash and my ink to create the background effect.
Firstly I created by background using the 'packaging technique'. Basically, you take a water soluble ink, rub it onto your clear packaging & spritz it with a bit of water. You then squish your inkie mess on to your page, moving it around & repeating until you're happy with the effect. I usually add some inkie splatters as well. Don't worry if you think you've over done it as it'll be in the background behind your photo & other decorative bits.
I cut some banner shapes & hexagons from the patterned paper and used more of the paper to back my cutfile. I wasn't happy with how the hexagons looks so I chopped them in half to create a decorative edge to my page. I added a couple of the banner bits but you could easily add more if you wanted.
I wanted to create a natural look for my 'outdoors' layout so I thought wooden embellishment would work well. You could easily add stickers or die cuts instead. I raised the Cutfile using foam pads and placed it on my page so that my photo was tucked behind it.
I hope you try the packaging technique to create your background and take up the challenge of using one sheet of patterned paper and your Cutfile!!
Best Wishes Sarah.
