Oktoberfest 2014 @ Paulaner Brauhäus Singapore

Really upset that I couldn't visit my friend in Swiss to travel to Munich together to experience the authentic German Oktoberfest!!! So I'll have to settle with the Singapore version with my cousins. It's still a pretty awesome night and I had fun (and a lot to drink).


Anyways, this is how my final layout looks like. I used mostly crate paper stuff. I think I almost bought the whole Open Road collection cos it's so pretty. #emptywallet

I started out with this typewriter-ish paper from crate paper open book collection (I used the other side of this paper and IT'S SO PRETTY!!!). I think this is really the paper to get coz you can either cut out the flowers as embellishments or you can use the flip side (like I did) and use it on any theme layout. It is quite a versatile design. :)


Then I decided to challenge myself to not use any mediums like my past projects. So I go ahead and plan out how to layout my pictures. These 3 pictures are my favourite for the night so I decided to put them side by side at the centre of the page. I also layered this paper (polka dot) at the back of the photos to give it a more dimensional look.

I then decided that I am sick of my photos being rectangle and boring so I decided to embellish the top and the bottom of the photos. I pulled out all my washi tapes and mix and match to make a banner. I have a lot of washi tapes but I have just no idea how to make full use of them. :( 


As you can see from the above picture, I also added some small tags and banners from the Crate Paper Notes and Things collection. 

Which is what I mainly used to embellish the top of the pictures too. 


Added some crackle accent from Ranger because I got itchy fingers and can't stop. 

And more embellishments at the top from Echo Park Creative Agenda Collection's sticker sheet. 



As well as the rub ons 'Happy Moments' and the stitching line at the top left and bottom right of the layout. All rub ons are from Crate Paper Notes and Things Collection. AND THIS IS A MUST TO BUY!!! ITS SUPER USEFUL!!! I think I have almost finished up mine. 




I have also added thickers from Crate Paper Open Book Collection as my sentiment. As well as some of the mini letters stickers from the same collection. 




For the finishing touches, I took out my black spray from Dylusion Ink Spray and splatter some onto my layout. Then I took out some Tim Holtz Distress Stickles Clear Rock Candy to add some shine to my project. You can see it from the banner pictures the effect of the stickles. Just bought this bottle and I LOVE IT!


That's about it!

So I happily showed my dad what he thinks of the new layout. He said it's messy and I got influenced to think its messy too.  -.- Tell me what you think! 

Thanks for reading! :)
