Mad About Scrappin - Layout of the Week - Week 11

 Hello again.
Back this week to share with you another layout I have created especially for Mad About Scrappin.
This week I have played around with lots of stamps I have in my stash and also a piece of paper napkin to mix it up a little.
I have been loving playing with the "Well Played" paper range from Carte Bella. It is so versatile and love the colours.
So here's the full layout
By mixing it up with some of the stamps in my stash I have been able to add that little bit extra to the base paper I have used. Once again I have used a piece of patterned paper as the base of my layout. However to give the paper a bit of a differently look I have used some matching washi tape to create an uneven border to start with and then added some stamped images randomly where desired. I also lightly sanded the red journal card then double stamped it to tone down the brightness a little to match the base.
 Now I must say I was very lucky with this layout I just happened to have matching flowers to add to this layout that I had purchased from one of Mad About Scrappin's Flog It Friday sales.  By clustering them around my photo and grouping them with the journal tags I was able to add some extra colour.
My youngest daughter did think I was a little nuts when I was creating this layout however. To add a bit of height and texture to the page before I adhered anything I scrunched up a white paper napkin (just 1 ply) and adhered directly to the layout base. I then adhered everything else of top. I also added an old bingo card in to the mix of embellishment clusters. I had lightly sanded it to tone done the brightness of it.
The last party of this layout was adding in some twine and a few of the matching "Well Played" Carte Bella stickers. they finished the layout off nicely. I didn't add a title to this layout as felt the journal card said it all. Sometimes that is all the layout needs.
Had a blast playing with this layout. Super easy and nice and bright.
Till next week share.
Happy Scrapping.
