It’s time for the newest version of 1 Kit 5 Ways. This month the Cheery-Os were lucky enough to work with Country Living from Blue Flower Art. The colors in this kit make it perfect for all the pictures you will be taking this summer and the elements make it versatile enough that it can be used with a variety of subjects.
Today, I am lucky enough to be able to show you five different layouts, plus information on how the layout was created, from our wonderful Cheery-Os that will show you the versatility of this kit.
Here’s what Marijke had to say about creating her layout. “When I opened the kit I thought immediately: that wordart I would definitely … I had a big picture in mind. I wanted a page with a big photo! I chose the purple paper because it fits perfectly with the lavender photo. I did not have a full purple page so I added a little color with a few elements and a brush.”
Here’s a little bit about Dina’s creation process. “The ribbon, I wanted to use this ribbon and give some relief effect, so I put a shadow on it. I chose solid paper background to keep it clean. I added some elements to decorate a little. Did not use a frame because I wanted to let the ribbon pop, so that’s why I just blended a big photo.”
Timounette shared this about creating her layout. “I love this automnal brush, so I wanted to showcase it. Then I choose a picture with some automal colors in it.. Then I added some few elements not to much to keep my page clean.”
Flor shared this about how she used Country Living. “Love this kit. It has a lot of elements if you feel like doing clusters and the splats are perfect to enhance the photos. The flowers and bright colors enhance my photo. I started with the plain paper because I wanted to use the splats and I started clustering the fabulous elements.”
Here’s what Deb shared about her creation process. “This is the page I made for the 1 kit 5 ways – this is the process – most likely not what everyone else does – but it works for me – I downloaded the kit and I saw the stitched flower(-3) – it immediately made me think of my Mamaw’s toaster cover and pillow cases I had folded and put away a few days ago…its my job to go through things and to figure out what to do with it all…I have no clue….I got out my camera and snapped the pictures you see plus a few more….I added the background paper(-6) that most made me think of the walls at my great grandmothers home – I wonder who stitched the toaster cover or the pillow case – and I don’t know – maybe someone else in my family will when they see this on their pc….I added the beaded stem (-5) – because it made me think of the days I embroidered and added beads and things…I added a couple of journaling blocks just squares in elements and added another sheet of paper to them (-12) (Ctrl G on a PC CMD G on a Mac.) It looks like linen to me….I used the elements as they come in the kit… I just made them smaller and turned them slightly – I added a drop shadow to them (Size 35 Distance 35 and Opacity 40) Last but definitely not least is the fence – its on a blending mode of soft light – no drop shadow…. I duplicated it 1 time and used it under and over the journal block. Mamaw liked toast a lot – she and her brother Robert use to make toast over an open fire together – she loved a toaster – she did not like burnt toast!!!!”
I love the versatility of Country Living from Blue Flower Art. I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at these wonderful layouts as much as I did.
