Elle's Studio - Cameron collection - The Scrapbook Store

 Hey crafty friends - hope your week has gone well ☺  For the month of August, I'm working with Elle's Studio - Cameron collection for The Scrapbook Store.  It is a boyish collection and perfect for my photo's, but the lovely bright colours and patterns could really be used for any theme.  And it's another one of those collection that can easily be used for Project Life too.
So here is my first DT page for the month:

 I've used one of the fabulous peices of 12x12 pattern paper in this collection as my base page - Numbers and Letters (the reverse side) - it already has a row of coloured arrows and I love the grid style ☺
Also in my DT kit was a pack of raw chipboard arrows by TTS - so I've gone a bit arty with them and added a few to my page.
Here are some close-up's:

 For the arrows, I've painted in white paint and once dry I've coloured with orange water colour crayon and used a wet paint brush to blend in the colour.  I've coated a few times, til I was happy with the depth of colour.  Then I've inked the edges and added some script stamping!  I've also used an arrow as a stencil and outlined in orange pen!
 The little journal card is called: Lil Snippet - Best Buds - I've cut a part of it to use as my journalling card with my typewriter.  And as I'm loving buttons and stitching, I've added some of these too ☺
To mat my photo, I've used some of the packing from this collection and also one of the tabs - it's a 4x6 " tab which I've cut in half, so I could have the bottom and top details showing.   I've added in some cotton thread for interest and you can also see more of the chipboard arrows which I've placed near the arrows on the pattern paper .

Well I hope you like what you see - this collection is worth checking out because it's a fun collection and has lots of interesting elements included - please check online at The Scrapbook Store - will be back to share some more soon.  Have a happy weekend ♥
