More August Inspiration with Leonie

Hello, Leonie here today with two scrapbook layouts to share with you.  
Each quite different, style wise than the other.
One is quite simple with lots of pretty patterned papers and chipboard accents and the other heavy with various inks, paints and other mediums along with some funky chipboard pieces.  I enjoyed putting both of them together so scroll on to see what I've created.


First up is this simple page using lots of patterned paper by Glitz Designs.
The 'Down by The Sea' title was perfect for this picture of my Sister and I with two of my children 
looking out at the lovely beach view before us.

When it came to colouring the chipboard I simply chose colours from the patterned papers that I had used to offset my photograph.
I used chalk edgers and paint, then sealed the chipboard with clear embossing powder.

This lovely vine flourish reminds me of the waves at the beach, don't you think?

I love the ombre effect on the butterflies.  I was so happy with how pretty they looked.

On to my second page. 
This one is using some 13@rts papers and stickers.
I coloured the chipboard a similar green/turquoise to the paper and highlighted it with some 
gold glitter in parts and gold embossing powder in other areas.

The embossing powder and glitter added a lovely textural feel to the chipboard and helped lift it from 
the base of the layout.
