3-to-Inspire with Kathleen

Hey there, it's Kathleen here again and I'm so happy to bring you another 3-to-Inspire blogpost - these are definitely one of my absolute favourites here on the Citrus Twist Kits blog!

I hope you already had some time to play with your March "Lemon Drop" kits and love them as much as me :) The fun, bright colours together with the black and white patterns are my favourite thing in the kit! So it's no surprise that I'm showcasing those on my project for today's blogpost.

For my project I used the Scrapbook Main and the Embellishment kit.

And here are the three prompts:
  • Use at least two black and white patterned papers
  • Add hidden journaling
  • "Frame" your layout
You don't have to use a lot of the black and white patterned papers, just a strip of it peeking out from behind something or using it to mat your photo totally work, too!

For my hidden journaling I used a piece from the Crate Paper "Here + There" ephemera pack, typed my journaling on (my typewriter wasn't cooperating but since I had only one of those pieces so I couldn't redo it and because the text is hidden, I just went with it) and then tucked that piece on the left side behind my white cardstock.

When I adhered the paper strips around my white cardstock, I made sure to leave a space for that card where I didn't add any adhesive.

To add some colourful contrast to the black and white elements on my page, I decided to use some orange/coral red bits and pieces, like the patterned paper strip on the left, the tag from the "Here + There" ephemera pack and some of the Pinkfresh Studio "The Mix No. 2" puffy hearts.

But before that I thought I would try doing a mixed media-ish background using some watercolours, mists and a star stencil with some shimmery texture paste (it's difficult to see in the photos, but you can see it on the right side next to the photo and on the lower left side, too).

Mixed media is still "difficult" for me and I need to try things out and kinda find my groove, which is also why it's rather "light" on this layout, but I am super happy with how it turned out!

Then I added the date and some phrases with roller stamps from my stash and that's it!

I hope you like my take on the prompts and of course I would love to see how you interprete them! If you play along, don't forget to upload your project to the CTK gallery and/or Facebook group for a chance to win a $5 coupon to the store!
