Inspiration Wednesday with Francine- Crate Paper

Hi Ladies and welcome to Inspiration Wednesday. This week Adrienne gave me some of the Crate Paper- Portrait collection to create with. This range comes in a variety of colours from black and grey to yellow and soft green and reds- so it covers almost the whole colour spectrum! I designed 2 layouts with my kit - one that i will share today and one next week.

This first layout i decided to step out of my comfort zone a little and focus on the reds and greens- not colours that i traditionally would use but i was happy with the end result! I layered lots of the paper and by cutting out various squares and using the back sides of the papers too- you can get a multi' layered effect from just a couple of pieces of paper. I handcut some of the flowers from the flowery paper to use on my layout too and only added a few smaller flowers to bulk it up a little.

By adding some punched edges and some punched butterflies ( how do i love thee Martha Stewart) and a few other embellishments it added to the texture and visuals of the  layout. I hope that you will give this range a try - it would be great for both boy and girl layouts- vintage layouts too- something for everyone!
I'll be back with yellow- a colour that most people avoid and black next week- to show you how you can create something simple and striking with these colours and this range.

Happy Scrapping
