Love Those Lanterns!

I have found a moment to sit and create and have totally loved using the stamp this month to make these little lanterns...

I have used August Create, Hybrids, Stamp & G2P for this LO.

I love this photo of Harry sucking his thumb it is such a peaceful and tranquil shot of him. Turning the photo from colour to sephia really looks stunning with the elements and tones of August Kit, really warm and inviting.

I wanted to create a large branch element so printed out the hybrid sizing it to fit on a whole A4 sheet, cutting off the lanterns that were printed and replacing them with stamped lanterns really did lift the page creating dimension and texture too.

To make these lanterns is simple. Stamp lantern image onto patterned paper, cut out and fold back and forth. Snip small slits into the 'peaks' and re mould to suit.

Orange paper was placed under the lace trim for added colour and the hybrid vine was raised with 3D foam pads.

Just goes to show that what may at first seem like a 'girlie' kit can be used to great effect for boy/male LO's too:D
