Hi everyone,

This month I have been playing with the latest  A piece of cake designs Main kit.

I love the versatility of this kit as at first glance it appears quite masculine.
So I wanted to challenge myself to creating a page that had a more feminine, yet fun
and young page.

So this is my first layout to share with you ......
I have chosen a paper from the kit and used a sewing machine
to sew a swirl effect as my background
I have cut pieces from other pieces of papers in the kit to place
under my photo. I then applied some acrylic paint and 
some watercolour paint to my background.
I used the paper with triangles all over it
to cut out various triangles keeping in mind my color scheme.

I also used some cut out card stock circles from my stash of card stock and added
some spotted washi tape. 

I LOVED the piece of vellum with the stars all over it and used it to cut
out some circles to add to my background.
Another thing I LOVED abot this kit were the awesome black stickers!!
I have used the film strip, one of the cameras and the insta lovin title!
Totally easy and really effective!!
I tried to use the scrabble type letters on this page and it 
didn't work so I used a Heidi Swapp Stamp instead
and coloured the letters in with some brush watercolour markers.
But don;t worry, I found a use for the scrabble letters on a another
layout which I will share next time!!

Thanks for looking, Eb x
