Kraft It Up - NOVEMBER

Novembers challenge at Kraft It Up is 
Minimalism is any design or style in which the simplest and fewest elements are used to create the maximum effect.

Well if you know anything about my style you'll understand me when I say this 
was a real Challenge for me.  LOL.

I had to restrain myself from adding more or everything! More embellishments, more patterned paper!!
Just keeping it to two brads, the peacock feather, the studio calico bird and the October afternoon die cut shapes.
I like the look of kraft on kraft with the journalling strips.

  • The background was made by spraying with Dylusions Sprays on to the 'circle explosion' Crafters Workshop stencil and then laying it down on to my Kraft base.

the Kraft It Up blog has lots of other DT layouts to inspire you with this challenge.
You can see them here.
Cheers. :)


  1. This is awesome, Leone!! I love your misting and the effect of using few embellishments!!

    I thought of you when I was creating my CT example… I thought that you must struggle just the way I did.

  2. How cute is that comment. Glad you documented it....for when he has those sulky teenage years and he doesn't like his Mumma.....hopefully not though.
    Love the colour and the peacock feather.

  3. Hey Leonie, you have done a great "minimilist" take on this challenge. It is hard though isn't it? Harder than I thought it would be. You have done a great take on this challenge. Cheers Di xo

  4. Wonderful! I do that with my stencils too (spray them and flip them over) this is a great layout!!
