Going Herbal

Hello there! It's Heather here with you today to share a layout I made using the "A Time To Dream" kit. Have I told you that this is my fave Scrappy Chat kit ever? I think I have - I love it!

But enough raving - here's my second layout using this kit:

The Color Burst that comes in the kit is fantastic fun to play with! The puff bottle makes application soooo easy! Here's a tip - spray a fine spray of water on your page first, then add the Color Burst powder. This way you can see the colour moving as you go and can see how much more powder you need to put on and where you want it to go. You can still add some more water afterwards if you want, but don't soak it or the colours will run together and give a less than ideal result.

I used my book paper in a different way on this page - I typed my title onto it! The aged paper fitted in with the rest of the page perfectly. To type onto a small piece of paper, or onto a specific part of paper, print your words onto A4 paper first then adhere your paper over the words with removable adhesive. Put them back in the printer and print the words again so this time it prints onto your specific paper. I find an ordinary old glue stick works well for this so long as you don't take too long to print and remove the paper.

I wanted to add journalling to this so I wrote it on a tag and tucked it behind my paper cluster.

I hope you have an amazing time with this kit! If you don't have the kits, here's the info you need to know:
