'Summer' Layout by Helen Tilbury

Hello again Purple Pumpkin fans!  
Helen here with a layout share that went up at Scrapmatts last month, 
where we were required to limit our colour palette to black, white & yellow.  

I used a couple of lovely yellow resin roses on this layout - see them there along the tear line?  They come in an assorted pack available HERE & are ever so handy.

I also used lots of little strips of yellow washi tape that I tore into strips.  I find that tearing makes the washi look more artistic on a layout like this & if you are worried about it lifting what I do is coat the whole area with a thin layer of gel medium applied with a thick paint-brush as that works as a sealer.

You can buy the washi tape HERE at a really reasonable cost & don't forget about the washi stacks too, where you get 3 co-ordinating rolls for $5 HERE.  If you want to see more close-ups or find out any more about my layout I'll have it up on my blog soon so come & visit if you like HERE!

Hope you get your washi on soon too!  Cheers!!
