In this layout I wanted to capture a fun Summer feeling and  what better papers to use for this purpose than the Passion Play collection, with their bold warm colour tones they are a perfect fit.

I first printed the elements and papers from the Passion Play packs with my Epson A3 format colour printer I then adhered the Passion Play painted paper pack onto a piece of regular mint green card stock and started my project from there using the JUST A LIL' DIFFERENT V.1 | Page Drafts templates also by The Nifty Pixel. Next I cut a 6" wide piece of from the pattern paper pack  and layered it over the top , following the sketch.  I then grabbed my blcj artline pen and added faux stitching to outline the edges with a contrasting border to make teh papers stand out more.

I chose the photos I wanted to use showing my boys playing in the garden and began fussy cutting the elements from the printed A3 sized paper I prepared earlier. I also cut some paper ribbon strips from the papers to help add more dimensions and layering.
Now its time to add some texture and extra dimension. I used a The Crafter's Workshop stencil and applied some light texture paste through it onto the background areas where my photos and fussy cut elements will be adhered. Thsi technique adds a nice subtle texture as a point of interest. Once that dried I added some ink splats here and there for a touch of grunge and lastly added my title work in a contrasting colour for added impact.

So there you have it, an easy step-by-step tutorial showcasing our PASSION PLAY | Collection and JUST A LIL' DIFFERENT | Page Drafts. Creating hybrid projects is really easy and gives you more bang for your buck. Buy digital and create endless pages/projects from the one Collection, kit or pack. With just a little know how around photoshop or any other photo editing program you are well on your way to creating some awesome hybrid projects.
