Some Paper Inklings layouts to share!

So I have started to play with my pack!  So exciting - here are the first three:

The Look:

This recent photo of my youngest daughter Alexa was crying out for a funky and grungy layout, and the colours and themes of the new “Concrete Jungle” range were perfect for just that! The range is far more versatile than just scooter and skateboard layouts, as is shown on this layout. Included on this page are papers and rub ons from the Concrete Jungle range, and Hazard Symbol chipboard from the Awesome Boy range.

Scooter Girl:

My aim for this layout was to incorporate the Concrete Jungle into my usual style – which often includes white cardstock background. The use of a basic white background really sets off the colours in the Extreme Scooter paper used for the patterned paper border, making a great feature of the arrows. Some rub on arrows from the Scooter A5 rub on pack were cut and placed in a couple of different places on the layout to draw attention to the title and link the arrows in. The fantastic Scooter Boy chipboard title can be used for more than just boy layouts! Here I have painted the title red, and then I just love the technique of painting black lines on there simply with the edge of a plastic ruler – so easy and so eye catching.

Aussie Road Trip 1994:

What better way to use up those awkward, small, {old} photos from years ago! These pics were not really good enough to feature on a layout of their own, but now I have a fantastic record of our road trip from many years ago! I have mapped out our route on the Australian Map Die-Cut paper from the “Australia” range, and used the Aussie from the Aussie Pride A5 rub on pack. How appropriate to have a kangaroo sign for this layout – from the Road Sign chipboard!
