The Great Escape by Amanda King
Hello Mad Scrappers! Amanda here to share with my first project with you.
I chose to work with the Legendary papers from Cocoa Vanilla Studio. These were in the July kit and add-on which is sold out now but some of the papers are still available individually. Of course, the beauty of individual papers is that you can skip the ones you don’t like, and double up on your favourites. I have two of the Offbeat paper as I want to use both sides as backgrounds, and I’m starting off with the star print today.
I made my page from the top downwards, starting with four photos from a Dartmoor camping trip. I printed these at 3” square (two to each 4x6 print) and started by matting them on dark blue cardstock. Next I arranged them on the One Way paper, leaving a large enough border to show off the arrows print, and tucked a strip of the orange B side in under the side.
I layered this on a large panel of the Brave Heart paper, making this long enough to hold my title, and finally stuck all the layers to the right hand side of my background before adding a couple of strips of the All Star paper top and bottom, positioning them to look like they are one longer piece.
I cut the word ESCAPE on my Silhouette, changing the A to a tent to match the theme of the photos and filled the letters with pieces cut from the Total Legend paper. This one’s really useful as it has lots of different patterns in one sheet. I finished my title with silver puffy letter stickers from Shimelle and repeated the silver colour with a label from my stash at the top of the page.
I added die-cut arrows to the top and bottom of the page and cut some stars from the different patterns of the Total Legend paper before tucking offcuts of the same paper into the edge of one of my photos. I placed the stars in a triangle around the page and added All Boy enamel dots from Echo Park to them. The colours in All Boy work really well with those from Legendary so the two would make a good combination if you’re looking to pull together supplies for a larger project rather than just a single page.
I have another page planned for the Legendary papers so I’ll be back later in the month to share that one with you.
