Kaisercraft "Shine Bright" | Louise Beerens

I am so excited to share a couple of layouts I made using "Shine Bright" from Kaisercraft.  It is a new release for February and without a doubt it's my favourite Kaisercraft collection ever.  I could marry this collection.  Seriously.

"Shine Bright" has everything I am loving right now- yellow, black, white, grey with triangles, scripty words, text and bold graphics.  

I only had a few sheets of paper to work with but I put them together with a few die-cuts from the Collection Pack, white cardstock for my backgrounds and got to work.

 For my first page, I scribbled down some yellow Gelato and blended it out with water to create a watercolour look (super-easy and fun), wound up a blob of white thread which stuck to the wet Gelato, and then built my main foundation layers on top in my usual style.  I bent up the edges of my papers to add some texture and dimension.  I added a paper doily from my stash and some ink you do ;-)

My next layout is in 8.5x11" format- one of my favourite sizes to work with- and I created a simple grid which I felt suited the graphic patterns in the papers.  Some ink splats and machine stitching were the only things I added to the papers and die-cuts.

So there's two completely different looks, but still in a style that come easily to me, and I have enough little scraps of paper left to make another page.  

As soon as this collection hits the shop I will be buying a sheet of everything (ok, probably two sheets of everything), so you had better be quick to grab some! Both of these layouts will be on display but leave a comment if you have any questions :-)
