Colouring fun… 

Hello, How are you? It’s Lisa here sharing with you three LO’s that I have completed taking inspiration from Giselles class held at the GoGo Getaway in March.

The class gave me inspiration to look through my stash of papers which I have “hidden/saved” providing a perfect opportunity to do something with them. They are made by  “Luxe Design” and also included an acetate.   Giselle used a variety of mediums within the class to add colour, which got me thinking! (Scary thought I Know!!)

For all my Lo’s I have used the paper range “Tres Chic” by We Are Memory Keepers which brings lots of bright colours to place alongside the bold black designs, perfect to modernise my “Colour Me” papers.

As you will see in my designs I have not used the whole sheet, as to be honest I found it a little overwhelming.

For my first LO I have applied some Windsor and Newton Indian Inks to different areas of the design, I was sure to keep some black and white in the design too.

I decided in my colours taking inspiration from the outfit worn by my Little Princess in the photo. I built the LO placing my strip of coloring to the right of the page with a glitter card trim. I placed a cluster to the left of the photo using a range of fussy cut items from the papers and some ephemera. My title added a little more sparkle with the gold glitter.


The LO below allowed me to play with metallic paints on Acetate. I was able to apply the fantastic “Starlights” in Lavender, Silver Gold, Hot Pink and Aqua. After applying the paints I constructed the LO on both the base card and also placing elements on to the acetate. This has provided great layering and although fiddly at times trying to match up the areas I feel that it was worth it.

I placed my photo central to the main circle raised on foam pads as a starting point, on the acetate to build the LO. I drew a pencil outline to the white card to guide my placement of journaling to the top right corner. Once I was happy with this I could rub out the pencil lines.

I placed some paint as a highlighter and layer by the photo to the white card, as you can see the paint shines through the acetate from the white card. The paints have worked very well with the colours of the paper.


My last LO I went back to basics using crayons to colour the details in on the card before fussy cutting all the elements to place on the base card. The pale colours really “pop” against the black. I drew the heart in pencil before adding gold Indian Ink. Although rather fiddly and time consuming it was worth filling in all the gaps. I have also added some punched glitter hearts to add sparkle.

I layered the photo on card from the same paper range adding a photo frame from my embellishments. I was able tuck the frame over the photo adding some foam pads this has helped the photo in its placement on the page. I added a card strip underneath my title as it looked a little lost as I desired this I placed foam pads under the card strip. Its a fun LO of a very messy little girl capturing the moment well! You can also spot a GoGo flair badge which I received as a pillow gift from the March GoGo Getaway…


I have enjoyed all three LO’s and feel that they work well as a collection but all bring something different to place in my album. Its been great fun colouring in and trying my hardest to stay within the lines….
