Australiana 1

today I am a guest on the Couture Creations blog sharing, some projects using, The Australiana Collection.
I am sure everyone is planning their Easter break activities by now so make sure you take lots of photos that you can scrap, this collection is perfect for that.
My first layout this photo was taken in a function centre in one of our local wineries this layout would be suitable with a photo of a garden shed or a tool shed as well.
I will admit to you my step by step may be sparse with not many steps as they are quite simple layouts 
so here goes
the papers I have used here are

I have cut these pieces from the above papers as you can see some of the die cuts were cut from scraps because not all will be seen I have used a variety of dies even a favourite Christmas one

all of these pieces were arranged on this  paper  using left over pattern paper as my matting for my photo

my next layout
This photo was from the same Winery I often take a photo of my placement before finalizing my layout I do that as a referral to look back on as I adhere to my page 
the paper I used here is

I have used a page from the colouring in book as well inked it up with some brown ink to give it a vintage look
embossed the the rectangle piece added a hint of white ink rubbed over the top to highlight the embossing

before adhering it all to the page I used a little bit of texture paste onto my card stock with a stencil to achieve a soft effect chipboard or die cuts would have the same appeal
all adhered down using either foam mounts or double sided tape

sorry no steps with this layout I was inspired by Carol Barron who had created a layout, which I fell in love with, so this is my version using a photo of my mum and Dad

A card  I created using the same papers 

 I will be back soon with some more projects using the Australiana Collection and I have also added a little bit of Sea Breeze with it as well
stay tuned
Thank you for visiting
