Papermaze DT - July PT II

It was my turn today over at the Papermaze Blog, to showcase some of the new Basic Grey.

What is better fitting for the summer than to create a layout with fun and bright papers, like those from the Lauderdale collection of Basic Grey?

The wonderful colours and bold images make creating a breeze.
For my layout I worked with these two papers, which compliment each other perfectly.

I like to punch and hand cut images from bolder patterns, outline the edges with some Ink and adhere them to the background with the aid of some Adhesive Foam Pads - I just love the raised effect.

I also wanted to make use of some really lush Maya Road Organza Rose Ribbon but found that the white colour was too bright for what I had in mind, so I just took some Cosmic Shimmer in Mango Blaze, to tone down the brightness of the ribbon.

For the final touch, I added some stickers to work as the matting for my title and the layout was done.
