Playing with Shine by Crate Paper

Happy Friday Everyone!
I'm here to share another Design for All About Scrapbooks - my absolute favourite place to get my Scrappy Supplies!
This week I had a play with Crate Paper's Shine Range by Maggie Holmes.
I adore Crate Paper, but often miss out on their embellishments.
So I decided to just have a play with their papers, and add other embellishments.
You may have worked out by now that I love mixing ranges!
I began by swiping gesso over my background striped paper. 
 I then added some spritz, and then a few strips of the various papers from the range.
I added my photos, in a cluster over these, focusing on one side of the paper, as I wanted to ensure I left enough space for my title and journaling.
I then had a blast with 2 Crafty Chipboard.  I went with a circular theme, and painted them in colours that matched the papers.  I added a few swipes of black and white as well, as I wanted them to look a bit 'arty' and not too perfect.
I then added some word stickers, my title, and some flicks of spritz/paint.
This was a fun page, with some selfie photos my girl took on my phone!
What can I say? She really shouldn't do that, cause she knows I'm gonna print them and scrap them! (insert evil laugh here).
I also decided to create a Project Life spread using this range.
I'm really enjoying creating a weekly spread from the leftovers. 
Plus it has the bonus of keeping me kind of up to date!  I think I've mentioned before how I got really behind last year (like 5 months), and playing catch up nearly killed me! 
So this year I'm determined to keep up.
I'm happy to say, I'm only a few weeks behind.
Here's the left side:
And the right:
I love the colours in this range, and I especially love the black and white stripe paper! 
 I find it really draws my eye into the design.
I'll be back with another share soon!
