Hello, all! Lisa here with another layout to share-- this time it uses one of Kaisercraft's lovely new releases: Paradiso. This range is perfect for all your summer holiday pictures, as it features plenty of sunny beaches, sweetly-scented tropical flowers, calm water and endless blue skies. At this busy time of year, who doesn't dream of a little R&R on a balmy tropical island? :)
I used a piece of kraft cardstock for the base, and layered it with a selection of hand-torn papers from the collection: Sandy Toes, Excited, Relaxation and Sunsets. The papers all have a lovely retro/vintage look to them, with soft colours that go brilliantly together.
I offset my photo a little to the bottom right, and then added embellishments in the form of flowers and leaves, as well as one of the groovy little doilies. These are great for adding a real handcrafted feel to a layout, and are especially handy for people like me who can't crochet to save themselves. ;) I also added a flower spray from the Collectables pack, and popped on a few bits of bling in the flower centres.
On the other side of the photograph, I used another couple of the Collectables and a little bit more bling.
A selection of flag banners in the top right corner (a mix of Collectables and some handcut pieces) to finish things off, and all done! This layout came together in about an hour, and was a lot of fun to make. I hope it provides you with some inspiration, and as always, thanks so much for looking! :)
