Be Free: A Layout for La-La Land Crafts

This week at La-La Land Crafts our theme is a color challenge

I have used lots of La-La Land Crafts dies to make this color filled layout!!

In the close up above you can see the seagulls from the Birds Die which I inked in Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I also added several die cuts of the Cherry Blossom Branch Die inked in Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  I added a lot of stitching, masking and stamping to the layout.

Here you can see the Diamond Wire Die  as well as the colorful stitching I did for the layout.

I tucked in little Birdhouse Die  amongst my flowers.

Finally I added some Large Medium and Small Roses, inked in Dusty Concord Distress Ink, using the Rolled Rose Large Die  andRolled Rose Small & Medium Die.

I used the August Prima BAP sketch for this layout and would love to enter it into their challenge there!

I have also been inspired by this mood board for the August Challenge at Scrap Around the World, using the purple in the bottom right dress, the stitching links to the spools in the top right photo and the lines of stitching are kind of like the cage effect on the shoe in the bottom left...I added feathers like in the middle photograph.

I had fun creating this colorful layout and hope you like it!

Remember, you can join in on all the La-La Land Crafts fun over on our Facebook Page, where you can also post your own La-la Land Crafts creations. You can also find us on Twitter!

Hi Cathi,
Have just stumbled on your blog - it's fascinating - I love the layouts you do.
I would love some of the La-La Land products but am not sure that there are retailers in the UK.
