Layouts using Echo Park 'Beautiful Life' from October 'Splendour' kit

The first layouts I made with the October 'Splendour' kit was using the 'Beautiful Life' range of patterned papers by Echo Park. The collection is gorgeous and has lots of pretty bright colours mixed in with a tan colour and a rich navy. The combination works really well together and I really enjoyed using these papers.


I wanted to use the tickets as my background for my first layout but it was SO bright that I was worried it was a bit much and would overpower my photo so I used a few inches of flags at the top. As the flags are on a white background this balances the business of the tickets paper below. I thought about using a small piece of the tickets with a larger piece of the flags but decided it worked better the other way around. I've used a couple of the journaling cards from the cut apart sheet to add in some additional patterns and colours and also used one of them to house my journaling. To embellish I've cut out some doilies from one of the papers and spread them around the layout and added punched border strip from the navy cardstock in the kit. I've only used small amounts of the navy as it's quite a rich colour and I just wanted it as an accent rather than a big part of the layout.

I've used the butterfly doily paper for the background in my second layout and mounted it on the navy card (I gutted it and used the middle for the first layout). I've mainly used journaling cards again on this layout and I've embellished with cut out tickets and flags. I've also used the same border punch to add nay accents in the same way as in my first layout. 

and here is Kirei's layout using these supplies. Check out her blog for more details on how she made it.
