Young & Free

Hi There Scrappy Chat Friends,

Today I would love to share with you a layout I have made using the March Kit.

This would have to be one of my favourite kits so far!

I love all the bright colors.

I have got lots of different techniques I wanted to share with you, 
that I had fun with from the kit.

The first is the arrows on the layout.

I made the arrows using the washi tape sheets in the kit, and two toothpicks.

To start with I cut two triangles the same size from the chevron washi sheet.

Then using the grid sheet I cut the tail of the arrow.

I used the toothpicks and stuck the triangles on the end,
and the tail on the other end.  I then cut a fringe in the tail of the arrow.

Here is a close-up:

On this layout, I also made the word FREE using the wire.

I wrote the word "free" on a sheet of paper to use as a template.

I then started bending the wire in the same way as the template.

I did have to fiddle alot and also go back and twirl some wire around different parts of the word.

Here is how it worked out.

When I stuck it onto my layout I realised that it didn't stand out the way I needed it to.
So, I went over the wire with some black ink.

Here are some more close-ups of the layout.

I made the frames myself too.
I sat my photo onto the paper, leaving an inch around the photo and an inch and a half at the bottom.
That way it looked like a frame.

I used lots of stamping on the layout as well.
I loved the stamps in the kit.  

They feature on the top and bottom of my layout.
And around the frames

and another close-up:

Thanks for stopping in.
And don't forget to check back on Thursday night, when the very talented
Heather McMahon shares another layout with you.
