One Collection, Two Different Looking Pages

Hey all. It's Pam and I am sharing two pages which are completely different but use the same collection. I really like the versatile patterns and color in the Twirly Girly collection by Chickaniddy Crafts. The possibilities are endless! You will see below how different my pages look.

My first page is of my friend's little girl. When I saw these photos I took, I envisioned butterflies and fun banners. Thus I created this page. I used a technique which I use often on my pages which is having a slight space between shape and the paper it is near. Check my layout below to see what I am talking about.

  Here is how I achieved this look! First, I cut out my strips of paper like this.

Next, I put the butterfly over my papers. I traced in pencil the outline but with a bit of space like  shown below.

The last step is to cut out and adhere to page! You will see that it looks like the butterfly is floating.

On my next page, I scrapped this page of my son (you could also use a photo of a girl for this page). He has such a vibrant personality that I wanted to capture these photos with a burst of sun! I chose mainly four of the Chickaniddy colors for my page: pale yellow, grey, orange, white and a touch of pink. I absolutely love how many grey patterns there are in this collection. That gave me the idea for clouds! I used a piece of patterned grey, yellow, and white to make the sun bursts. I used pop dots on some of the clouds and outlined others with a white pen.
