Street Life

I spent a good day with my friends at Jill's crop, at Cardinal Colours on Saturday and made three layouts.  The first is this one called 'Street Life'.

Another layout for Catherine's dancing album. The photos were taken last summer when she was in 'Disco Inferno' at The Bob Hope Theatre with Liz Burville's Performing Arts Centre. One of the dances she took part in was 'Street Life'. The photos were taken in our garden with Catherine dressed as she would be for the danc. The scenery was very green, and did not work with the title or the papers I had selected to match her outfit. I decided to try cutting her out from two different photos and mounting her onto a piece of patterned paper. I think it worked well in the end.  The papers were from Cosmo Cricket, a kit I purchased from Cardinal Colours a while ago. The papers are double sided and the patterns were in a range from peach to orange and lilac to purple. The kit contained a sheet of die cut shapes and the letters spelling out 'Life' which was coincidental as well as convenient! I used some of the shapes on the layout together with shapes cut on the Cricut, using my new Storybook cartridge as well as the Sweet Treats cartridge. The word 'Street' was cut with the Lyrical Letters cartridge.

The journalling block was also from the die cut shape sheet. I added Prima flowers, elaborate floral brads from Making Memories (I think) and some orange self adhesive dots from Paperchase. Lots of glitter added with Stickles from Ranger Inks.
