4PP&1SS | Episode 3

I don't know about you but I get overwhelmed when ALL of the new collections come out at once.  It's especially bad after Creativation when American Crafts releases what feels like 100 collections at once.  There also seems to be a supply thing and if you don't buy straight away you miss out forever.  I wonder cynically if that is all part of the plan.  Then there is Cocoa Vanilla and Pink Fresh too... mustn't miss out on them either.  This time I decided I would place one order for all things under the AC umbrella.  Lottie Loves Paper is my shop of choice and I had a good browse and made a list.  Then I crossed off most of the things on the list when I realised how many sheets of paper that would be!  I settled on 5th & Monaco (paper pad, ephemera and stickers), Paige Evans (one sheet of the pastel diamonds) and Maggie Holmes (four sheets of paper and the sticker sheet).  I was so excited by 5th & Monaco and yet it has sat there untouched so far.  When I got the papers 'in the flesh' as it were I loved the Maggie Holmes ones the most.  The colour palette is different from the same old with a rich yet dusky purple.  This is a mini series of creations made with those 4 Patterned Papers & 1 Sticker Sheet.


Layout 3 is somewhat more maximalistic than I'd intended...  I got carried away with the mixed media!


I've got stamping, ink splattering, packaging technique, sewing, heat embossing and lots of patterned paper layers.


And I do indeed love this!  It turned out really well.  I added some vellum in to the mix to calm the background down so my photo cluster didn't get lost.


I was super stingy with paper.  Anything that was going to be covered by another layout got trimmed off and popped somewhere else.  I really stretches your supplies.


I used various Shimmerz Paints along with Distress Oxide ink in Mustard Seed.


The stamping was done with a fleur de lis type of design from a StickerKitten set.  The embossing powder is Rose Glintz from Wow!


I used the fancy stitches on my sewing machine.  Every time I use them I think I should use them more often.  They do add so much interest to the page.


As you can see I went overboard with the photos and have run out of things to say!!
