Rockin' With Elvis

Hi there.

It's Heather back with you again today with my third layout for Scrappy Chat Design's Cheeky Smiles Kit. I have now made three layouts but I could easily make another three. There are so many papers in this kit!

Here's my layout:

This is very much a light-hearted, fun layout. I love making these. I just go with what feels right.

The background is from the gorgeous Simple Stories DIY Boutique range that is in this month's kit. I framed the photo with the Boutique Newspaper paper then I punched circles and cut strips and chevrons from other papers in the kit to back it all.

Underneath the papers, I just gave a good spray with a white mist then added a small spray of the Tumble Dye from the kit. At the end, I covered the photo and flicked the Tumble Dye across the page. I added the enamel dots from the kit too.

Did you notice what I put under the photo? Yep, they're Bandz, or Loom Bands or whatever brand you want to call them . These were in the kit too! I love how there are sometimes unusual items like this that make me think outside the square!

I thought I'd try a different approach to making my title. First I sprayed with white mist. When it was completely dry, I adhered the words "Elvis " and "me" in place using temporary adhesive. I then sprayed over them with the Tumble Dye. When this was dry I peeled off the chipboard letters, touched up any parts that leaked under the letters with white paint then outlined them in black pen. This created something just that little bit different.

I've really enjoyed using this month's kit and am looking forward to still playing with the rest!
